The first half of the 20th century is generally regarded as the “Golden Age” of railroading. This was also a period that saw social, artistic and cultural changes. This evening GEP Baltimore will take your guests back to an era in the wake of a World War when jazz music blossomed, the flapper redefined modern womanhood, and trains were the preferred method of travel.
The setting for your next reception, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, contains the oldest and most comprehensive collection of railroad history in the Western Hemisphere, fully immersing guests into the theme. The itinerary for the night will feature stops at reception stations inspired by several of the regions served by the B&O Railroad.
As your guests enter the beautiful and newly restored 1884 Baldwin Roundhouse, they will be in awe of the impressive space before them. Cigar Girls will create the perfect welcome as they offer guests delicious cocktails reminiscent of the Prohibition era while waiters wearing conductor hats serve tray passed hors d’oeuvres. Scattered throughout will be a mixture of rounded café and cocktail tables as well as square tables to give the room dimension. Tables will be dressed in specialty linens and topped with alternating centerpieces echoing the “Golden Age” feel.
