What an oxymoron!! Can the words “Inexpensive” and “Downtown Venue” be used in the same sentence?? It can now, and that is music to my ears!
If you’re looking for the sophistication and elegance of a downtown venue at a great value, you’ve got to check out the W.O. Smith Music School on 8th Avenue South in downtown Nashville. Since 1984, W.O. Smith has introduced thousands of deserving children to the world of music. This edifice was built three years ago.
This beautiful facility is flexible, and well-located with easy access parking (75 – 100 car capacity). Not only can music be heard throughout the building, but it can also be seen in all the modern architecture of the space. If you look closely, you’ll see the light fixtures are music notes on a staff line. The building itself is the design of a guitar. You can see the guitar strings span the width of the facility if you have an eye for detail.
Some of the many perks of W.O. Smith include the great acoustics and the readily available instruments for your entertainment purposes. The facility has 200 chairs, 10 – 6′ banquet tables, and 6 – 30″ round cocktail tables that are all included in the rental rate of the facility, which is unheard of! The Ira Hunter & Merrydale Woods Recital Hall seats approximately 120 for dining, concert seating for 200 or cocktails for 150. The lobby capacity is 150 for cocktails. For food station/lounge-style dining, W.O. Smith can accommodate a total of 300 guests for less than $2,000.
As I have been researching unique venues, W.O. Smith Music School is the best value I’ve found thus far. Consider hosting your next event here, but act quickly! They’re almost completely booked for the remainder of the year. For more information about venue rental, click here.
