The Quinceañera Tradition:

The Quinceañera tradition has been around for centuries. Dating back to 500 B.C. it first appeared as a ceremony for girls turning into women and going on to birth the next generation of great warriors.

Ranging from between $12,000 to $15,000 dollars, the average Quinceañera continues to represent an important moment for the family through the careful savings that will take place for years before the big day. With a history of about 25 years in the U.S.A. they have only grown in popularity, mostly supplanting the Sweet 16 party thanks to its strong cultural significance within Latin America families. Either way, it is an incredible experience that often involves a spectacular dress, a choreographed series of events, and a beautiful young Brenda Zamora.


When it all comes together, it is simply spectacular. With many girls looking forward to their Quinceañera years in advance, finally reaching the ceremony means years of preparation and excitement. Every Person only gets to experience 1 Quinceañera and young woman across the country are making it count. 

A Beautiful Location:

An amazing Quinceañera is nothing without a venue that can match it both in importance and splendor. The Brownstone is an excellent example of one such venue. A burned out brownstone building, it was lovingly restored by its owners RIta and Tom Clune into a great venue for important and significant moments.


Originally build in the early 1800’s the restoration work brought it back to life and made it shine with look rarely found in the United States. with more than 30 years of operating and countless stories, The Brownstone was sold in the 1970’s. Unlike, other banquet halls out there, the Brownstone did not disappear into private hands and instead continue as a place where people could come together in celebration. 

While the building itself provides an unforgettable atmosphere, what is most amazing about the Brownstone is its windowed atrium. A great location for the Quinceañera, the space combined delicate brick, wood, and metal work with large glass panels to provide a space that is both open and cozy. Protected from the weather outside while still being able to take it all in, the room as whole was capable of meeting the demands of the Quinceañera, providing an elegance and beauty befitting the young woman celebrating the next stage in her life.

In addition, to the windowed atrium, the restored and decorated interior provided a space that was fantastic for photos, leaving many opportunities to take memorable pictures. Designed to to rented out for important banquets, the Brownstone signifies the best in ceremonial venues. With  staff that works with the family to ensure the best possible experience, hiring the Brownstones as your banquet space will help to remove a lot of the stress that can come with planning such an important experience.
