The Blaisdell

The Blaisdell

Is your heart set on hosting an event in a classic setting with a mingle of traditional and modern themes?  The Blaisdell is the place for you!  The Blaisdell mansion, masterfully built in 1915 in the center of south Minneapolis, has served the brides throughout the greater Minneapolis area about eight decades as an ultimate wedding destination.  Centrally located, The Blaisdell is an ideal wedding venue and reception locale.  With architecture molded in the spirit of the Georgian Old South, The Blaisdell is a perfect venue in which to celebrate your wedding, corporate gathering, non-profit fundraiser, or party with an air of luxury and refinement.

Picture your guests decked out and assembled beneath magnificent vaulted ceilings.  Grooms and brides will feel like the kings and queens upon entering the assembly as they glide down a stately staircase.  A delightful and warm atmosphere in the traditional front parlor and subterranean lounge create an attractive appeal while guests enjoy a custom bar and mingle underneath the manor’s 18-foot ceilings and skylights.  The mansion as a whole accommodates up to 600 guests.  The ballroom, an exquisite display of historical culture and romantic ambiance, accommodates up to 300 guests.  Smaller ceremonies fit comfortably in The Parlor, an excellent venue space for a cocktail hour around high-top tables.

Dance the night away in elegance on the ballroom dance floor, or stroll through the courtyard garden on a starlit celebration evening with your partner for that perfect romantic moment.  Leisurely prepare for the big event in The Suite, a spacious space complete with a vanity, mirrors, seating area, sink, and salon chair.  Since The Suite includes every amenity needed for wedding preparation, the bride may invite stylists into the suite to complete hairstyles and makeup for her wedding party.  The Suite is an attractive “all-in-one” space.  Grooms may entertain their groomsmen in the lounge while viewing the big game or a favorite show with a pool match underway in the background, to relax in the time leading up to the main event.

Whatever the occasion for your celebration, The Blaisdell makes a spectacular backdrop!  Photo opportunities abound throughout the entire manor!  The staff at The Blaisdell combs every inch of the facility before the start of your celebration or event to ensure every detail of your decoration and planning is in perfect order. Find nothing short of elegance, convenience, and class at The Blaisdell!
