For those events, The Woodward is the perfect answer.

Just like your living room, it offers charm and intimacy. But it also has multiple bathrooms, an impeccable staff, full bar and professional AV equipment… which you probably don’t have at home.

For occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, and fundraising events, you need a one-of-a-kind venue that manages all the behind-the-scenes stuff so you can focus on having a great time.  

It’s important to note that we don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to our private events. Each one is a totally customized affair.

Here are just a few of the questions we’ll ask as we work on your custom plan:

  • Would you like theater style, cocktail tables, dining tables or a combination?
  • Will there be a live performance or speeches?
  • Do you need a screen to display video or pictures?
  • Is the event open to the public or limited to a private guest list?
  • Do you require our digital ticketing and staffed box office services?

As you can probably tell from those questions, we’ve done it all and love bringing our hosts’ visions to life. Even though each event is different, one thing always remains the same - the backdrop of our beautifully restored 1913 building, which began its life as a silent film theater. 

As soon as your guests arrive, they will know that they’re in a special place for an exciting event. The fact that we’re in Cincinnati’s hottest and most vibrant neighborhood doesn’t hurt either.

The whole experience comes together to create a truly memorable event that your guests will be talking about for years. When you’re ready to start collaborating on your private party, please
