The Metropolitan Ballroom & Clubroom in Golden Valley brings with it a rich history. The venue, which has been entertaining guests since 1994, has undergone a two-month renovation, completely transforming the space while retaining the sense of history.

“Formerly a popular destination for live music, it was important to honor that past while designing a space for the future,” says Christie Altendorf, senior event planner for D’Amico, which has been operating events at The Metropolitan since 1996. “As such, music continued to inspire the space, and a beautiful, vintage-modern concept was born, inspired by the great dance scenes between Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.”

Nothing was changed within the structure of the Metropolitan, but every inch of this venue has been redesigned with weddings in mind. Every room is filled with light and bright décor, complemented by airy fixtures with a sense of whimsical elegance.

The fresh design aims to be a welcoming experience for couples, Altendorf says, as a premier wedding venue in the region.
