Working with the new owner and staff at The Melody Event Center has been a great experience, and I know several other friends have had or attended events here over the years with nothing but positive things to say.
If you’re looking for a classic/historic venue for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, corporate event or charity function… this is a great place!

I’ve been to three events in the Melody thus far and for every one the building is looking beautiful and well maintained. bathrooms are always in working order, no concerns over maintenance anywhere. It’s a beautiful building, perfect for and adaptable to so many events. I look forward to going to many more events here.

The only times I’ve ever been to the Melody are the annual Vampire’s Masquerade Ball hosted by Lady Raven. Every year the venue outdoes itself with decor, lighting, performances, and bar selections.
The ballroom lends itself perfectly to a night of dark romance with big columns, high ceilings, and just enough space to make the masses comfortable.
I would love to recreate the looks I have seen for the Masquerade ball for a wedding.Haven’t been disappointed yet, and you better believe I’ll be
ack next year, and the year after!

We went to Melody Ballroom for some ping pong action after our nephew was rejected at Pips and Bounce even during under age hours. Melody was a fun atmosphere with some pro ping pong players. Little kids were even pros. It was great to watch and play. The service was so friendly…finally…just the way I heard Portland people to be. Was kind of losing hope in that rumor but Melody helped bring it back. Portland people can be friendly. We had a blast playing ping pong! Thanks Melody Ballroom! Leaving Portland today with some ping pong memories!

The melody ballroom was an amazing space to have a reception. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. It went so well, and we didn’t have anything go wrong! Dinner was talked about for days/weeks after, and Kevin was so amazing! He kept in contact with us a lot, and he made sure our big day was perfect! We were in the lower ballroom. Beautiful, funky, fun, and all around great! Wouldn’t have done it any other way. 🙂

Had a great evening at the North by Northeast Community Health Clinic fundraiser. Staff was great, food great. The whole experience was so flawless. I would certainly consider them for a large event!

HANDS DOWN THE BEST EXPERIENCE WE EVER HAD! We were first introduced to Erin as the wedding coordinator back in Spring 2014 & really enjoyed her company and professionalism. We had a long 15-month engagement and was later introduced to Kevin who took over for Erin a few months into the planning process. We were actually quite nervous about this hand-off, but it was surprisingly seamless & painless.

We had our High School 45th reunion downstairs at the Melody Ballroom. Our event was successful. The food was awesome, Kevin at the Melody was so helpful. I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat.
