Highlights of Beatnik West Town Weddings

It’s hard to narrow it down to just a few highlights when the entirety of Beatnik West Town is so well put-together.

As soon as you walk into the venue, your eyes are pulled up towards the ceiling with huge oversized chandeliers and skylights that provide warm light against a rustic wooden ceiling. Then add in the intricately carved wood, gorgeous tiled tables, lush greenery surrounding the space, a faux-floral wall with fairy lights, long line of pillar candles that add a warm glow to the space, and of course a striking array of different Persian rugs, and you have yourself a venue, people! A gosh dang good one.

Not only does the venue have a flair for décor, but for history as well. As you walk through Beatnik West Town, there are several breathtaking antiques scattered around, including an enormous 40-foot wide by 10-foot-tall Carved teak Façade imported from Bali from 1900 or the Wrought Iron Wellhead from an Olive Grove in Spain from the 18th century. Nearly every piece in the venue tells a story.

This remarkable venue is truly best experienced in person.
