The Crystal Ballroom at The Burt is an elegant wedding venue located in the historic district of downtown Hutchinson, Kansas. Built in 1901, The Burt was originally home to the Shaw Theatre but has since housed a café and auto repair shop, among other businesses. The building was purchased in 2017 with the intention of opening a museum, but the Crystal Ballroom was reopened and returned to its former glory. It is now available to play host to ceremonies and receptions.
The Crystal Ballroom offers various other locations for use during weddings. The nearly 15,000-square-foot venue contains a more intimate hall, two get-ready rooms, and a commercial kitchen. The ballroom can hold 190 of your closest loved ones for a seated meal, lit by glittering Maria Theresa chandeliers. Original maple floors give off a honey glow in the sunlight that comes through the numerous windows. Exposed brick walls add a modern, industrial edge to an elegant space.
- The adjacent Empire Room is attached to the Crystal Ballroom by large doors that can be folded back to create space for additional guests. This room can seat an additional 60 of your loved ones, bringing the total capacity up to 250.
- The Foxtrot Lounge and Tango Parlor are primarily get-ready rooms but can also be used for a moment of solace from the busy occasion.
- The Tango Parlor houses a private powder room for the wedding party to use at their discretion. An onsite commercial kitchen can be used by your caterers for convenient, prompt service.
- Rhapsody on B, our newest venue, is perfect for ceremony. Matching the elegance of the Crystal Ballroom with gorgeous chandeliers, exposed brick walls and walnut flooring, you can seat up to 250 guests for your nuptials then head straight up to the Crystal Ballroom for your reception and dance.
