Our second to last stop in our venue hunt was Pinstripes located in North Bethesda, MD. If you have never been to a Pinstripes it is a very fun venue. This venue is what you call an all inclusive venue. With catering, entertainment, alcohol, tables, chairs, linen, venue coordinator all included onsite.
The Pinstripes in North Bethesda, MD does not disappoint on the FUN meter. On the main floor where your guests enter is a large restaurant. Your guests are escorted up the stairs to the outdoor patio for either your ceremony or your cocktail hour. The outdoor patio is so much fun! It has a fire pit, cabanas, and a bar that overlooks Pike and Rose.
Inside is the ballroom with large floor the ceiling windows, gray walls, wood floor, round tables and brown modern chairs. The ballroom seats 240 people. The reception room creates an intimate experience. While right outside the room the fun continues with bocce courts and bowling lanes.
The area of Pike and Rose is also a great place for your guests. Right across the stress is the Canopy Hotel (Although, I wouldn't count on them to give you any proper customer service.). They are Marriott hotels surrounding the venue. Plenty of locations for your guests to stay. Also, plenty of parking, no need of security, restaurants and bars for everyone to enjoy.
So.. most venues that already have catering have so, so food but Pinstripes has some delicious food! They are also willing to work off their menu if you need and the chef allows you to bring in Halal food that accompanies their food. Which I found very refreshing.
This venue is a must see! If you go make sure to make an appointment with Liz Dyer. She is very helpful in the whole process and will go above and beyond to answer all your questions.
Next weeks blog will be about our final venue Haven Street Ballroom!
