I couldn't have asked for more for my wedding at The Thaxton. It is the perfect combination of elegance, originality and most importantly fun. Peter and Mad Dog, along with DJ Uptown, truly know how to throw a party. It was easy to plan, and I had every confidence that things were going to be just as I wanted. Peter's flexibility to "make it happen" is refreshing. Numerous guests have told us, it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to - I contribute that LARGELY to the venue and the atmosphere it creates!!! AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!!!

We chose The Thaxton as the venue for our wedding reception. When we first walked in about a year ago, we immediately knew we needed to look no further. From the moment we stepped in, we were sold. Such an amazing building with beautiful art deco on the main level and one of the coolest bar/dance atmospheres downstairs that we ever saw. We didn't even bother looking at the other candidates, there was no need. Kim was awesome to work with, very flexible and open to requests. She even met us at our bank when we had a last minute change in the payment arrangements. They gave us 2 hours to set up, not that you need to do much, atmosphere is already superb. Peter was great to work with during our reception, even went as far as to fetch us drinks while we tried to greet each and every of the 150 guests. We couldn't have asked for things to go better. Check out their Facebook page and see for yourself. We are so happy we got to celebrate in such a unique and beautiful environment. ER & RD

The Thaxton is one of a kind! Where do I even begin?? Well for starters Peter is amazing and literally helped me all year with questions and concerns. He was so professional and personable. He took a lot of the stress of planning off my plate and trust me with planning an out-of-state wedding that can be a lot... The day of the wedding was literally perfect! The venue looked beautiful! I had guests coming up to me telling me it was the best wedding they have ever been too. If you are looking for a unique intimate spot to have a wedding or event this is your place. I could not have asked for a better venue or wedding day. C Thanks again Peter and Kim!!

We decided on the Thaxton because of its intimate atmosphere. From the rehearsal through the end of the evening the Thaxton and its staff was absolutely amazing. We never had to ask them to do anything. The speed and ease from which they transitioned from the ceremony to the dinner was flawless. The bar and dancing area was perfect for the number of guest we had. The Thaxton staff made my daughters night the focus and their performance only enhanced the evening. I am forever grateful to them for their hard work and professionalism. When my last daughter gets married the Thaxton will be our second wedding with them......

The Thaxton was the absolute best choice my fiance and I could have ever made during our wedding planning. If you are like us and looking for a more intimate venue with character to boot this is your place! The Thaxton was an absolute dream; as you walk into the building you are greeted with the most gorgeous art deco murals, gold crown molding, and a spiral stair case leading to the upstairs mezzanine. After dinner, you take an old time elevator to the speak easy lounge in the basement. The speak easy was just what the party needed to get started! Our guests are still talking about what an amazing experience they had; we had 110 people for a sit down dinner. Peter, Mad Dog, Kim and the entire Thaxton staff was such a pleasure to work with. During the planning processes they were there by our sides with any questions or concerns we had, and they made our day run so smoothly. My fiance, myself and all our guests had such a spectacular night I couldn't ever imagine having our reception anywhere else. We also used Bridget from "flowers to the People" florist, I HIGHLY recommend Bridget! She made The Thaxton look even more romantic and special than it already is, and she was a pleasure to work with as well! The only negative was that the night was all too short! Good Luck in your wedding venue search; I highly suggest you schedule a walk through with The Thaxton to see how spectacular this venue is!

The Thaxton is a standout unique venue, which made it an obvious choice for our reception. Our expectations for the day were high but the Thaxton delivered on every count - the venue, the staff and the service were all excellent making it a very memorable experience. I would recommend the Thaxton without any hesitation.

I cant say enough how amazing The Thaxton was for our wedding and reception. Peter and Kim were so accomadating and put me at ease about the whole event. We had 125 guest for the wedding and then flipped the main level for the reception. All of our guest not only commented on how amazing the space was they also commented on the staff and how they just knew what to do and make things happen. We were given a sheet with vendors to use that was very helpful ecspecially with the caterer. I would defiantly recommend The Thaxton to anyone! My husband and I want to have another wedding there because it was such an amazing day!!

Perfect place for our parent's surprise 40th wedding anniversary! Could not have found better people to work with. Peter was fabulous is helping with the "surprise"! The venue has the perfect setup for intimate parties. Even though this was a larger group than we anticipated, The Thaxton fit so well with the dinner tables and then the bar/lounge area downstairs. Everyone at our party was blown away by the whole night. The DJ did a fantastic job, the valet service was a big stress reliever off our minds for guests parking in the winter time, and the caterer and bakery worked so well with Peter and the rest of the staff at The Thaxton. I would definitely use The Thaxton again and people from our party are already telling everyone they know about the place. A BIG thank you again to Peter and everyone at The Thaxton! If anyone needs a place to book for a party, this is it! Don't even look anywhere else because you won't be disappointed!

I had a survey done by all of our clients as well. Everyone loved the venue and consistently gave feedback that they had an absolute blast! There was one negative that came up more than once (having nothing to do with the venue, but thought you would want to know): the catering side of things was less-than amazing. For the same cost as the caterers, we were getting substantially higher quality/quantity provisions at the Hilton and our clients vocalized their recognition of the difference. That said, it was only a handful that felt this way about the food, but, across the board, people loved the Thaxton! Thanks again for the Hooch!

Thank you for taking the time to review us! I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with the quality/quantity of the food provided by the caterer. Though we use outside caterers, we never want to hear that you were unhappy with any part of your event at the Thaxton. We will definitely keep your experience in mind when making future catering recommendations. So glad you enjoyed the Hooch!
