Located at Fifth and Church, in the heart of the vibrant Arts District and steps from downtown Broadway, Lola is the essence of Nashville charm. The building, once home to the Armstrong Corset factory, has high ceilings, exposed brick walls, and beautifully refinished hardwood floors. The name Lola is a nod to the building owner’s grandmother. In Philippian culture, “Lola” means grandmother, and his grandmother lived with them for many years and was “awesome.” Lola is a tribute to her memory.

The Wedding of Our Dreams! I could write for days about the most amazing experiences we had with the aVenue and Randi events! Summer Jones was the most phenomenal planner and partner for our big day and made me feel so relaxed and at ease through this entire process. We had... Read More many guests travelling in from out of town that RAVED about our venue and how absolutely beautiful everything was- from the big details to even the smallest touches- I literally would not change one thing about our special day! If you are looking for the perfect downtown venue- look no further! And do yourself a favor- let Randi events take care of this day for you! It's too special of a day for you to have to worry about anything! Love love love you Summer!!

Best. Decision. EVER!! My husband and I got married in July. We chose aVenue because of the close proximity to downtown, for our out of town guests, and because it came with an event planner piece. Randi Events (Grey Boroff) completely exceeded every single expectation I... Read More had. The wedding was gorgeous (because the space is stunning with nothing in it) but the event coordination piece saved our life! They made the process so easy and simple! They gave great recommendations for vendors, stayed within our budget, and was so easy to work with and helpful with anything we needed. Our friends and family had a great time and we were able to actually enjoy our wedding (not having to worry about anything). Everyone (vendors, Randi Events) was so professional and so wonderful, using Randi Events definitely made everything perfect. I would get married again only if I could use Randi Events and aVenue (I didn't want a wedding)!

I used Randi Events to plan my wedding reception and the venue at Greenbrier Distillery was perfect! We had a small crowd so the space was the perfect fit. We were able to get the distillery to offer whiskey tastings for our guests during cocktail hour, which made for a lot of... Read More fun. The whiskey barrels and general southern feel of the venue went perfect with our theme. We eloped several months before so did not want a fancy celebration, just something where everyone could feel comfortable. The soft lighting and overall relaxed atmosphere made it a night where everyone could let their hair down and have some fun, coming together just to celebrate.

My husband and I were married on October 22, 2016, and our reception was held at aVenue. The whole experience was so much fun! I hear so many people talk about the chore and stress of planning a wedding, but I experienced neither of those things! Grey Boroff was our planner,... Read More and she did a fantastic job! Everything was just as I imagined and the whole process went very smooth! I had complete trust in her, and that allowed me to focus my time on enjoying our wedding weekend without a worry! We just arrived and everything was perfect! The venue was a great setup for our 260 guests. The layout worked well for our buffet dinner and dancing to our fabulous band! We really saved some money since we could supply our own alcohol for the night. My only complaint about the venue is the bathroom situation - there was a line for the men's bathroom for much of the night. There just weren't enough facilities for as many guests as we had.

We had our wedding at aVenue in September and I think it was the best wedding I have ever been to (granted I may be a little biased). I HIGHLY recommend using Nashville Event Space for your next event. Despite the fact that I was an out of town bride, our wedding planner, Grey,... Read More planned and executed the most BEAUTIFUL ceremony and reception my new husband and I could have ever imagined. We are still receiving complements on how gorgeous the wedding decor was. I throughly enjoyed her willingness to go over the invoice line by line with me, her cost saving ideas, and her patience when it would sometimes take me days to respond to an email. I can guarantee that our wedding would not have been half of what it was if we had have chosen another venue and had to do the planning ourselves.

Hiring Grey Boroff from RandiEvents was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. My husband and I had our wedding at aVenue on June 3rd, and it was absolutely perfect. Grey is worth her weight in gold, and she made planning the wedding so fun and easy! Not only did... Read More she do all of the heavy lifting when it came to contracting and coordinating vendors, but she also has excellent taste. Grey managed to pull all of our eclectic ideas into a stunningly beautiful, quirky, and cohesive event that perfectly reflect our personalities. A funny story that illustrates Grey's awesomeness is that I almost walked down the aisle without my bouquet, and Grey noticed it right before I was going to enter. She stopped me just in time, SPRINTED downstairs to grab it, then handed me my flowers in the nick of time!! That's just one of many ways that she and everybody at RandiEvents made our wedding such a wonderful, stress-free event. Highest recommendations!

When searching for a wedding venue, I toured at 8 other places in the city, and it seemed that many of them were either difficult to contact, had tricky pricing models, didn't have flexibility in the vendors they could use, etc. Luckily, the I found the aVenue and it was... Read More perfect! They were so easy to work with and made the wedding planning process....ENJOYABLE! We worked with Grey Boroff, an Events Coordinator from Randi Events, and she was absolutely fabulous. Grey took any stress off from us, especially since we were planning from another state, and her professional expertise was priceless. She was able to make anything happen - For example, 48 hours before the wedding we decided we wanted to have valet parking for guests, and she made it happen - on Nashville on a Saturday night! Brainstorming with her was invaluable since she is extremely knowledgeable about the venue, the area, and vendors in the area - from table arrangements to the timeline for the day to coordinating with 8+ different vendors coming and going throughout the day, she coordinated everything and it came together seamlessly. Even my friends and family were amazed at her ability to do it all. It was a truly magical (stress-free) day and I couldn't recommend her, or the aVenue, more!!

After touring numerous venues in downtown Nashville, walking into aVenue was a breathe of fresh air. The wedding was a destination so I needed it to be Nashville-esq and aVenue was beyond perfect. The venue starts as a blank space which is a beautiful mix of rustic lofts and... Read More country chic. Know that if you do choose aVenue you will be set up with a coordinator for the wedding, and it is the BIGGEST support system you will have. Sarah Ann was unbelievably amazing with every single detail of the wedding and was always available to me if I had any questions. I never felt uncomfortable or iffy about texting her. She coordinates literally everything for you( I have no vision for anything, so I had her take total control!). She knew my budget before starting and never once pressured me to spend more nor did she go over our preferred budget. Last thing-open bar was a MUST for our family and they had the most reasonable price per person(by a ton!) compared to any other venue. If I had any other event to plan there is no doubt I would call Randi Events, Sarah Ann specifically to help me! Love love love everything about aVenue!

I want to start by saying aVenue is one of the coolest spaces. Grey, our wedding planner, absolutely transformed the place into the wedding of our dreams and she made sure the night went by smoothly without a hitch. She was eager to please and help in any way that should... Read More could. If anything went wrong we sure didn't know about it! She is a sweetheart and will do anything you ask. I would say my ONLY complaint about Randi Events, which would make me give it 4 1/2 stars, is that they tend to nickel and dime you with everything. You have to keep a close eye on the invoice because they will often add things you did not necessarily mention. Now, this is a great thing if you're throwing caution to the wind, but just be mindful of your invoice and check it thoroughly :) Otherwise, phenomenal service very accommodating!

The event space is obviously gorgeous so no need to write more about that BUT it looked stunning the day of the wedding.... Read More Randi Events and Grey Boroff were so tremendously helpful. We never would have been able to pull off the wedding with out them! They gave the best recommendations for vendors to try (make up, florists, DJ's, etc) and we were not disappointed! If I were to divorce and get married again, I would do it all again, everything the same! Best money I've ever spent and worth every penny (which they were willing and able to work within my budget!).
