The Engine Room – Monroe, Georgia
Looking for the perfect venue for your vintage-themed wedding? The Engine Room in downtown Monroe, Georgia may be just the place!
Industrial and chic…the two words that best describe The Engine Room’s unique style.
Located in the center of the Monroe, GA historic downtown district, the venue provides a true glimpse into local history. The building – part of the Monroe Cotton Mills – has been around since 1895 and housed the cotton mill’s engines for 90 years.
To this day, the intimate 6,250 square foot space’s stunning features – exposed brick, weathered paint, hardwood floors, pine columns, and sliding fire doors – remain perfectly in-tact and set a spectacular backdrop for the vintage wedding of your dreams.
A Modern, Chic Twist
While the setting creates an industrial, vintage ambiance, the venue’s decor options and amenities add elements of a contemporary, chic style.
The facility provides modern conveniences – a large (newly updated) industrial chic bridal suite and restrooms and a full-service commercial catering prep kitchen. Plus, you can adjust the venue lighting however you like – from chandeliers to wall wash lights to café lighting and more!
This mix of vintage and chic (indoors AND outdoors) creates fabulous photo opportunities your wedding photographer will just love.
The Possibilities Are Endless!
The airy single-room venue can be divided into a ceremony space and separate reception space for smaller intimate events. However, the space can also accommodate larger groups, holding up to 400 seated guests or 500 standing .

The 1.5-acre lawn is another fantastic spot for ceremonies, picnics, parties and more – still maintaining the vintage ambiance with the mill’s brick walls and the surrounding buildings of downtown Monroe as a backdrop. The venue also boasts a charming outdoor patio , well-suited for small, intimate receptions and ceremonies.
