Living in the West 7th neighborhood of St Paul, we had walked by the North Garden Theater many times. From the exterior it didn't look like a spot we would even consider for our reception venue. But we booked a showing just to be sure...And we are so glad we did! What the North's have done with the space is magnificent. Ryan and Tina are so accommodating with any customization we needed and they run the bar, and much of the hospitality themselves, which comes complimentary with the rental. All of our guests were so surprised at how unique and fun this space and reception was for our purposes. If you're looking for both a unique and reasonable venue, this is your place!

We loved having our wedding at the North Garden Theater! We were able to make it all our own and through the entire process, Ryan was calm and confident when I had questions or concerns about anything! it is a big, beautiful venue to fit all your loved ones in and throw the best party ever! The lights are beautiful, the bar is stocked, everything you can customize makes it all so personal (marquee, movie posters, stage background...), and you can have other vendors of your choosing (DJ, caterers, photographers...). We had endless compliments from guests that it was the best and most fun wedding ever and we wouldn’t change a thing about the day we had!

First off - Ryan and Tina are amazing. There support and kindness are worth more than 5 stars. North Garden Theater is the perfect DIY venue in the twin cities. They allow a lot of customatization - but they also give you reign to make your event YOURS. The best thing with this venue is the team. Ryan and Tina were always quick to respond to emails. They were so kind and attentive, and perfect at calming a stressed out first time bride. They answered every question with ease, and whenever a problem came up - they quickly helped find a solution. I would do my wedding all over again many more times because of them. Thank you Ryan and Tina, for everything. For making my day the best day ever.

Our wedding at the North Garden went off without a hitch. I can't speak more highly of Ryan and Tina. They were so easy to work with: responsive, flexible, friendly, and accommodating. I was expecting to be stressed out but actually managed to have fun at my wedding because they were on top of everything. The venue itself ended up looking so much better than I could have imagined--especially with Ryan's help getting the ceiling decorations up and Tina matching the lighting with our wedding colors. The North Garden Theater exceeded our expectations left and right. I can't recommend it enough.

Reasons why I love The NGT: 1. Ryan and Tina were AWESOME to work with - very quick to get back to emails and answer questions. Super accommodating with all the vendors I was working with and I felt like I could customize EVERYTHING with them (down to the jalapeno margaritas that Tina and Ryan prepared!). 2. So reasonably priced! Security was included with our rental, they helped with parking, set a beautiful ambiance of the space, included tables and chairs (and helped with setup and tear down), did a custom marquee message, and so much more. We had the venue from early afternoon all the way to midnight. We were able to reserve the space the night before to host our rehearsal dinner and complete the setup (pro tip: get late night pizza from Joe and Stan's - you will not regret!). 3. Customizations all around! I've eluded to this already a little, but it was so great it deserves a second mention - every time I came to The NGT with a hope to customize something they said "no problem!" and made it happen without adding a bill unto my tab, which is so incredibly rare in wedding planning. 4. Beautiful space with room for everyone and everything. We had our ceremony and reception at The NGT - it was perfect because there was a space for the bridal party and groomsmen to get ready separately, a seamless transition from ceremony to dinner, and the venue itself allows for beautiful lighting and sound. Thank you again Ryan and Tina for everything - you two are A W E S O M E!

So many of our guests said, "This is the best, most unique wedding ever!" to us about our reception at NGT. We are not a traditional, boring couple so we wanted a venue that wasn't the hotel ballroom everyone else uses. I loved the character of the theater and that we could use our own food vendor (we went with awesome food trucks). Ryan and Tina helped us order our specialty wine and even our vendors said that this venue was one of the coolest they had ever seen. My only disappointment was that we had to eventually leave, I could have stayed there all night.

We got married in May at the North Garden Theater, and highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an event space. Ryan and Tina were an absolute delight to work with. We live in the neighborhood and stalked this venue until they were open for business. In addition to being very nice people, they were communicative, and provided useful tools to help us arrange the space to best suit our needs. We loved the flexibility of renting a space without being restricted to a tiny list of caterers, and Ryan and Tina were there to give us recommendations along the way. The space is elegantly and simply designed, which allowed us to make it our own. We had a live band, and got married on the stage. We felt like rockstars at our wedding, and isn't that all you can ask for? Our families and guests loved the space, and we did too!

Takes one to know one: NGT venue owner/EXPERT hosts surpass expectations of a performing arts bridal party made up of banquet managers and event planners. Every imaginable detail has been considered before you ever set foot inside the beautifully restored historic building. In addition to impeccable customer service, the theater's ambiance includes exposed brick, a lush velvet curtained backdrop, and tailored color-specific accent lighting which all add up to an event photography dream! There is simply nothing this high in quality for such an affordable price in the 'Cities.

We held our wedding reception at North Garden Theater and loved it! Ryan and Tina were professional, detail oriented and helpful. They made sure that our day went smoothly and helped to bring to life the traditional and non-traditional ideas we had. They helped us to make the space feel like a warm and welcoming festive celebration. They worked hard to ensure everyone had a great time. Communication was clear, emails were returned quickly which was helpful to us! The space is flexible and gorgeous. I highly recommend the up-lighting option!!

Had our wedding Reception here on October 6th 2018. It was magical. Ryan and his wife worked well with my coordinator the day of. It turned out just how i wanted! Such a cozy place. Perfect for a small to midsize wedding ( Depending on the seating ). It was a local venue for me so it worked out perfect! Right on the strip of west 7th st so great spot for pictures! Ryan was always prompt with answering my emails. My day turned out perfect!

Our experience working with North Garden Theater on our reception event was outstanding. The owners are personable, hard working, and customer service oriented. The venue is unique and impressive in form and function. It was a pleasure to witness, first hand, how North Garden Theater beautifully celebrates and honors the history of the Garden Theater and its West Seventh neighborhood.

I will preface that I have known Ryan and Tina, the owners of North Garden, for many years. They are amazing people and such hard workers! They will take such great care of you, making sure that you are happy and that you have everything you need. The space is wide open and has beautiful wrought iron-work and a chandelier, and a bar in the back. There's a dressing room with mirrors, and the upstairs office can also be used as a dressing room. They have a parking lot down the street for guests, plus street parking. Very responsive to questions and always willing to help. They are also very earth-conscious and have options for recycling and composting. Perfect space for a smaller wedding and reception. If you need to bring in catering, be aware counter space is limited and there are no heating elements in the back. We did our ceremony with cheesecake afterwards, and it was perfect! They're the best!
