I had the opportunity to see the Foundation Event Facility at 620 State Street, Bristol, Tennessee on Friday. Was I ever overwhelmed! I had seen their website and the pictures of events being held there, but it doesn’t begin to capture the beauty of the place. The outside doors, with the impressive brass pulls, bring you into a huge hallway with hardwood floors and exposed brick. That space could be used as a wedding reception venue for a stand-up cocktail party, since there is a bar on that floor.
The mezzanine, which overlooks the first floor, is a smaller, more intimate space for maybe 70 people. It would be great for a small company party or a shower of some type. It also has a bar.
The third floor is huge, with big windows at the end, with seating for 500. There is a large separate space for staging the food, or serving a buffet. There is a fixed bar, but the room could be used for many purposes, and in many different configurations.
There are dressing rooms, very nicely decorated for each wedding party. There are floor-length mirrors in both. The men’s room is very masculine, and the women’s room is beautiful. Even the doors throughout have architectural detail. I can’t say enough about how much I loved it.
I am not attaching a picture. I am not a photographer. You need to see it for yourself.
