It’s time for another one of our Best of Nashville interviews! This month, we are featuring Ruby, a wonderful venue located in the Vanderbilt/Hillsboro area, owned by Dan and Brenda Cook. We’ve decided to feature Ruby this month, because they are participating in the Nashville Venue Crawl, this Sunday, August 4th. This venue crawl features 3 different venues around Nashville: Ruby, The Bridge Building, and Houston Station. OZ Events is also featured, however, their venue will not be participating in the scheduled tour due to ongoing construction. This event is the first of its kind in Nashville and is a great way for brides to see many different venues at one time. We are so excited that Ruby invited us to participate in their showcase! So sit down, relax, and enjoy this conversation Brenda and I had about what makes Ruby special and one of the Best in Nashville!
LPR: Tell me a little about the services you offer at Ruby and the specs of the building.
Brenda: We have a capacity of 225, and the outdoor space – with our decks and courtyards – often plays a part in our events. Our facility comes with parking, audio and video systems, facility assistance, cleanup, ice, garbage cans, and other things you would want in a venue. We also offer planning services – after all, we designed the space, so we enjoy being a part of the creative process to ensure the space is utilized to its full potential.
We are still relatively new, so we’re amazed at how the business has grown. We are shocked that Saturdays are booking up to a year or more in advance now!
