Historical Prestige and Distinguished Charm

Very few Milwaukee-area venues hold as much historical prestige as this month’s featured venue, Turner Hall Ballroom. Built in 1882, Turner Hall Ballroom has three historical designations, including National Landmark, Local Historical Landmark, and a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places. Its storied past only lends to its distinguished charm, artistic sensibilities and culture-rich beauty; making it the perfect location for weddings, galas and social celebrations.

Turner Hall Ballroom’s beginnings as a showplace for panoramic painters and German immigrant artists helped pave the way for the Milwaukee art scene throughout the early 1900s. And its artist roots have never left, as this two-story, 7,000+ square foot ballroom still hosts live music from prominent touring performers year round.

Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee and just steps from the Riverwalk and many prominent hotels, Turner Hall Ballroom provides a great central location. A private event in this captivating space offers plenty of space for up to 350 guests, unique customization options and special amenities. You’ll be in awe of its distinct characteristics and exceptionally high ceilings. If you’re looking to impress your guests within a uniquely intimate setting, Turner Hall Ballroom is the perfect place.

We have the pleasure of being a preferred caterer at this location with plenty of insight into Turner Hall’s unique layout and design, ensuring a smooth flow and impeccable service for any event type. Your rental fee includes an on-site coordinator to help facilitate vendor delivery and pick up and day-of set up.




“We hosted our wedding at Turner Hall in Milwaukee. What an amazing building!! The architecture is beautiful , with the soaring windows, the beautiful balcony and staircases to the wooden floor. We hosted 215 guests and there was plenty of room to move about near your table and on the dance floor. Only downfall, not a lot of parking.”

“Turner Hall was the most beautiful venue! The perfect mixture of classy and elegant, but also rustic with a ton of character. Ann was so easy and accomodating to work with. I couldnt recomend them more!”

“Working with Ann was a dream! She was responsive, friendly, welcoming – all of the things one could ask for! Having our reception at Turner Hall was magical. The space is incredible; our guests loved exploring. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
