Jessamine County is now home to a new event venue which opened earlier this month for both corporate and private events, Bluegrass Hall.

Tim Winn, general manager of WinnMedia the parent company of Bluegrass Hall, said the new facility rivals facilities in Lexington while being able to provide local services to Jessamine County residents and said the 4,675 square foot space is prepared for any occasion.

“It is equipped with a spacious catering kitchen, a VIP Suite and a state-of-the-art lighting and AV system,” Winn said. “We also offer additional amenities including pipe and drape, a stage, a bar and chairs and tables.”

Located at 3000 Elizabeth St. in Nicholasville, Winn said Bluegrass Hall can hold about 150 people. However, the facility can hold up to 237 people in certain layouts.

Winn said Bluegrass Hall was created with a singular goal in mind.

“The goal of Bluegrass Hall is to become a sought-after space that fulfills the event needs of residents in Jessamine County and surrounding areas,” Winn said. “We hope to quickly become a part of the fabric of Jessamine County. We created Bluegrass Hall to fill a need for a year-round event venue here in Jessamine County. Bluegrass Hall has been a wonderful collaboration between a visionary staff, receptive and knowledgeable city officials, and local event professionals to provide a beautiful yet functional event space.”

Countless hours have been invested in the project and Winn said the past few months have not been easy

“We have thought long and hard about our style and how Bluegrass Hall will be portrayed,” Winn said. “Bluegrass Hall has received strong support from city officials as well as the community at large. From that, we have discovered from many in the community that this sort of facility has been long awaited here in our county. We feel we have done our best to create what we feel can fulfill that need.”

In addition to opening its doors, Bluegrass Hall has also joined the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce who they recently celebrated with at a ribbon cutting. Winn said joining the Chamber has given Bluegrass Hall vital relationships and several events have already been booked through contacts formed from the Chamber.

“Joining the Chamber of Commerce has helped us spread the word of what we now have available here in Jessamine County,” Winn said. “It also brings us in contact with many business leaders representing their products or organizations. We are excited to establish new relationships and support our fellow chamber members with our new venture.”
