Downtown Bryan Events is home to four uniquely beautiful venues in the heart of downtown Bryan; the newly renovated Ice House on Main, Grand Stafford Theater, the SEAD Gallery, which is located in the century old Federal Building and the Urban Garden.  Each venue is historic and elegant in it's own way. Whether you are planning an extravagant wedding for 500 or a quiet, intimate wedding for 20, Downtown Bryan Events has the venue for you. 

The Ice House on Main has been through quite the journey in it's 105 year old life. Built in 1912, the Ice House has been has been home to a Coca Cola distributor, furniture manufacturing, and a popular night club, Cell Block Five. Signs of the structure’s storied past can still be seen throughout the building, especially in the banquet hall and bride suite. We want you to be a part of it's history. 

Grand Stafford Theater is a dynamic setting for weddings, receptions, and other celebrations. Featuring state of the art sound and lighting, mezzanine seating, and a full bar, Grand Stafford Theater is always ready to host a memorable event.

The SEAD Gallery is a unique venue where you can be surrounded by not only the history of the building, but also by original art and shelves of classic books. Art gallery and bookshop by day and shower or reception venue by night, let us help you have a unique and memorable event. 

The Urban Garden provides a wonderful outdoor space for almost any occasion with a stage for live music or DJ, elegant garden lights and a fence for controlled access. It is the perfect venue for outdoor engagement celebrations, weddings and even your bachelor or bachelorette party.
