The Historic Maxwell Room

Fort Lauderdale



Situated on one of the most notable sites in Ft. Lauderdale, the Historic Maxwell Room is a classic setting for your Mediterranean inspired wedding. Retaining the charm and elegance of bygone days, this venue remains today a premier Boom period example of vintage Mediterranean Revival architecture. Kick off the festivities with a cocktail hour in the private Courtyard. Lined with beaming bistro lights and Floridian flora and fauna, the whimsical nature of this hacienda style garden will leave your guests feeling transported to a simpler time. With the town bustling around you gather friends and family at the seawall, through the red-bricked archway on the south side of the glistening New River, as you say your “I Do’s” with the one you love. Follow the warm breeze back inside the Maxwell Room for a warm and inviting reception, complete with a distinctive dance floor enclosed by red brick arches and colonnades, a full-size pub-style bar, large wood ceiling beams, hardwood floors, and a spacious area for your guests to sit and enjoy delectable delights all night long. The Historic Maxwell Room is an exquisite choice for wedding memories to last a lifetime.
