The elements of a perfect party.

What

“Baltimore’s best place to have a party.”
In 2000, The City Paper named The Elm “best place to have a party.” We throw a great party - and more. We coordinate informal and formal events of all sorts. Just some examples:
• Corporate meetings/retreats
• Black tie dinners
• Birthdays
• Bar and Bat Mitzvahs
• Wedding receptions
• Wedding ceremonies
• Commitment ceremonies

Whatever the reason for celebration, you and your guests can count on a memorable time here.

Inviting spaces, inside and out.
Nestled under a canopy of sweeping oaks, maples, and other hardwoods (but no elms), The Elm is a renovated carriage house originally built before the Civil War.

What’s inside - and out:
• 2 large rooms covering 2,800 square feet
• 16-foot-tall ceilings
• Fully air-conditioned spaces
• A full kitchen
• Rustic antiques and hand-painted furniture
• Original and vintage art, plus antique automobiles
• A balcony opening on to a two-tiered garden - a real favorite for warm-weather weddings and receptions

The Elm can host as many as145 guests, or make a cozy atmosphere for as few as 20. Inside and out, the Elm offers tranquility, atmosphere, and charm - right in one of Baltimore’s most appealing neighborhoods.

“Thank you for opening your home to parties. It is a near-perfect space for small to medium-sized events and does not in any way have that institutional feel to it.”

Where

Hampden is definitely on the map.
The Elm is in Hampden, one of Baltimore’s best neighborhoods. Who says; Everyone from The New York Times to the National Historic Trust for Historic Preservation - which named Hampden one of only eight Baltimore business districts in its “Main Streets Program.” On 36th Street, you’ll find more than 150 shops and a range of reasonably-priced restaurants. The Elm and Hampden are 10 minutes by car, bus, or light rail from downtown Baltimore - and also convenient to the suburbs via I-83 and major arteries.

“My husband and daughter absolutely loved your location. What’s not to love? Yes, yes, yes. Ariella very much wishes to have her Bat Mitzvah celebration at The Elm.

Who

Meet Sharon Price.
When it comes to coordinating a memorable party or event, Sharon Price can do - and has done - it all. She’s the friendly voice who picks up the phone when you call. She’s the one and only person - in all ways - who will orchestrate your party or event. After you’ve chosen your caterer, ordered flowers, or arranged for a DJ, Sharon becomes the “point person.” She’ll bring everyone and everything together, from scheduling deliveries on your big day to being on-site to receive them. She’s The Elm’s on-site coordinator - and more: The Elm is also Sharon’s home.

“Thank you for taking out time from your busy life today to talk with me about my upcoming wedding. What I appreciated most was your generous spirit and how special you think weddings are.”

How

We’re here for you - completely.
Asked what makes The Elm a refreshing, unforgettable experience, clients give high marks to Sharon’s can-do attitude, enthusiasm, and knowledge of what makes a good party a great one. We’re here to orchestrate the details so you and your guests can celebrate, have fun, or get your work done as the event warrants. Having a coordinator on site is one of The Elm’s real distinctions - and also the reason parties and events run smoothly.

“So many things that made the night memorable trace back to you. You are an impossible gracious host, a creative organizer, an invaluable contact and a somewhat buried treasure.”

History

Built before the Civil War.
In the 19th century, Hampden’s mills led sales for the nation’s cotton duck-canvas for tents and sailcloth. The Elm, situated in the original mill village, is the area’s only surviving carriage house/stable from that era. In the early 20th century, The Elm was an airplane factory that built the Oriole Scout Monoplane, and then a factory for the glove boxes found in Model A Fords. For several decades until Sharon Price bought the property in 1984, the building was an inventor’s studio. After a decade of loving renovation, Sharon opened her home in 1994 as one of Baltimore’s most delightful party venues.

“We can’t think of another place that better captures our personalities and our spirit than The Elm. Thank you dearly for providing such a wonderful and fun place for us to celebrate our wedding.”
