Hippodrome Stage:

A setting unlike any other you can imagine. Guests are seated, served, and entertained on the same stage that is used for iconic Broadway shows. Not only does this setting have the capacity to hold up to 450 guests, but with the backdrop for your event being the lavishly decorated theatre, guests will be speechless. Don’t forget that the stage makes a great location for a wedding ceremony as well!

M & T Pavilion:

This elegant ballroom boasts a five-story ceiling with original architecture. Essentially a blank slate, the M&T Pavilion can be customized to your special event. This historic room can be transformed with the Hippodrome’s specialty lighting packages to match your wedding or other special event.

Grand Lobby Foyer:

The south side of the Hippodrome lobbies houses the Grand Foyer. This 3-tier space can be rented as a whole or individually, each level with its own bar and restrooms. The second and third levels provide captivating views of Charm City including the historic Bromo Seltzer Art Tower.
