John Eager Howard Ballroom

a warm venue

Named after General John Eager Howard who fought in the Revolutionary War and was Governor of Maryland,

the handsome John Eager Howard Room was originally called the “Tea Room” because of its afternoon tea held daily for Baltimore’s aristocracy. In 1981 the Restaurants & Institutions Interior Design Award was awarded for the restoration and preservation of the John Eager Howard Room. The walls feature murals of turn of the century Baltimore hand-painted on Japanese rice paper from the 1930s.

Please note, all capacities are based on maximum usage of the ballroom and every event’s needs are unique.
