Originally built in the 1870s as a manufacturing facility, Variety Works has been lavishly upgraded while retaining the charm of the past. With its airy open spaces, it can be personalized to fit every style of gathering, from romantic destination weddings to grand fundraising galas and other functions seeking a uniquely chic venue.
Variety Works is located just steps from the James Madison Inn. Let our experienced event and concierge staff assist with planning your extraordinary occasion.
Soaring exposed-beam ceilings, warm heart pine walls and glittering chandeliers set Variety Works apart from standard event venues. Its elegantly rustic setting offers customizable gathering, dining and dancing spaces for up to 250 guests. Outdoors, you'll find a graceful landscape with a winding path and stately oak trees leading to a gazebo at Round Bowl Spring, allowing for outdoor ceremonies, garden cocktail parties and scenic backdrops for your photo memories.
The James Madison Inn is proud to offer a premier selection of food and beverage services at our event venues through select local vendors. From light bites and signature cocktails to plated dinners for hundreds of guests, we know exceptional cuisine elevates every occasion.
