The Clarendon Ballroom

is a full service private events venue and nightclub established in 2000. The brain child of local restaurant and hospitality entrepreneurs, the upscale art deco Ballroom opened to immediate popularity and has hosted some of the area’s most memorable weddings, fundraisers, and events. Fourteen plus years in business and thousands of events later, compliments consistently center on the restaurant quality of the food, the attentive and subtle service, and the posh feel of the unique period setting.

The Food

 Planning a successful event requires attention to detail in all aspects of presentation and execution, but, most particularly, with the menu.

As with any special occasion, the food should reflect the taste and preferences of the hosts. Our catering staff is happy to create new and unique menus for special occasions and welcomes the suggestions and requests of our clients. 

Executive chef Patrick Crump hails from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America and has worked in such nationally renowned establishments as The Homestead, Jimmy Sneed’s The Frog and the Redneck, Patrick O’Connell’s The Inn at Little Washington, and The Ashby Inn. Before heading the kitchen at the Ballroom, Chef Crump had most recently been running his own catering company, Salt and Pepper Catering, Inc.

Chef Crump and his skilled staff bring restaurant quality standards to large scale event dining.

The Service

The staff at the Clarendon Ballroom knows that each occasion is different, each client is unique, and every situation has its nuances.
