Brick and Beam

Favorite feature of the venue?
? The exposed brick wall and industrial fixtures. The entire building is full of rustic charm and accent lighting that adds a vibe of elegance of an era gone by.

What are your couples’ favorite features of the venue?

Our couples love the intimate feeling of the venue. There is also a Springfield mural that welcomes all to the historic neighborhood painted by artist Grant Thorton. We also have a top deck with a view of downtown jacksonville that is great for couples photos.

Tell us a little about the venue? Is there a history or a cool story couples love to hear?
The main parlor was built in 1905 and full of history. The building started as a drugstore then renovated into a Springfield watering hole known as the Pearl nightclub. If you look closely during our tours, you can still find pieces of the pearl left behind. Adjacent from the venue is BIG JIM. Most Springfield residents are familiar with Big Jim, a steam whistle that sounds 4 times a day Monday through Friday to announce the beginning and ending of work hours. You can hear Big Jim as you drive through Springfield at 7:00 am, 12:00 pm, 1:00pm and 5:00pm, he can be heard 3 to 5 miles away.

What are the venue spaces? 
The downstairs of the building is our main parlor, remodeled and structured to maintain its minimalist design. There is also a caterer's warming kitchen, a bridal suite, and an expansive private back deck with a fire pit and built-in seating. The property also includes a private parking lot so guests do not have to travel far before the fun begins. 

What’s included in your packages?
Please inquire for details

Are there any photo restrictions at the venue?
All videographers and photographers need to carry the proper liability insurance. 

Do you have a Getting Ready room?
We have a bridal suite downstairs that can also be used for other elements of their day such as a secret bar, photo booths, or black jack tables. On weekends, we do offer our upstairs conference room as an additional getting ready room. It has 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen; perfect for brunch and mimosas!
