The Brownstone is a newly renovated wedding venue conveniently located in the heart of the historic downtown district at 10 East Franklin Street between Foushee and First Streets. This bi-level venue features a magnolia-lined patio and 3 connected dining rooms on the walk-in floor; downstairs are bride and groom suites adjacent to a 200-seat ballroom.

The walk-in floor contains a 20 foot x 75 foot patio that fits 100 seated classroom style and 120 cocktail style. Past events on the courtyard have included wedding ceremonies, outdoor sit-down dinners, off-site corporate meetings, networking events and cocktail parties. The dining rooms - named the Magnolia, the Valentine and the Jefferson - can be used for mixers, sit-down dinners and team meetings. They can be combined to create a spacious reception and there is a barroom as well.

The dimensions of the ballroom are 43' x 27' with a corner bar and an additional 38' x 12' of additional space that can be used for furniture groupings, buffet space or cocktail tables. Past ballroom events have included upscale birthday parties, quinceaneras and memorial parties. Specialty lighting is built in, and there is a drop-down projection screen.

The staff of the Brownstone has earned high accolades and consistently positive reviews for its flexibility and attentiveness.
