Spotlight on: The District Venue

The other night I stopped in to The District Venue, which is located at 1350 SW Vintage Parkway in Ankeny, Iowa. So for tonight it’s our Spotlight article!

A lot of big booming things happening over in Ankeny, huh!?

The District Venue is in a cool area – lots of shopping and bustle going on. I primarily spoke with Liz, who is a delight. Very warm and friendly and knowledgable of what she the venue has to offer.

First impression walking in: Gorgeous atmosphere! It is soft and inviting and the flooring/wall color allows for a non-descript backdrop so that your theme can really shine.

Huge space too, 5,000 square feet of a blank canvas waiting for you to splash your love story all over it. There are two levels. The top level overlooks the cocktail lounge/bar/buffet area. It was set up for a ceremony the night I was there and you could really do a lot with the space (as far as drapery, etc.). *And there is an elevator and wheelchair access.

Downstairs there is a bar, in-house kitchen for the in-house catering, cocktail lounge/dance floor area and then the seating. They can seat up to 350 people, which is quite a few.

Quite a few things come with this venue when you book it for your special day. Just a few of those are free tastings, room clean up and tear down, security/dram insurance, waitstaff, bartenders, etc. To find out more about what amenities are involved, check here.

Tell Liz you saw The District Venue here, at Khenri.

And don’t forget when thinking about your dinner at your venue, you might want to have menu cards, place cards, etc. And the place to go to get those pretty designs is me! I would love to help match your menus to the ambience of your wedding!

Happy Tuesday and hoping you’re staying warm while looking for great wedding ideas!
