After Party Locations

Posted on

One of the great things about holding your wedding or event in the Shadowland Ballroom is the close proximity of Downtown St. Joseph which enables you to continue the party after hours. Some top-rated restaurants and bars are within walking distance of the Ballroom and are open year-round, so no matter the season of your event the fun won’t stop!

Check out some of the fun, entertaining locations that will allow you and your guests to continue your celebrations after your/their time at Shadowland:


The smells of Silver Beach Pizza drift over to the Shadowland Ballroom’s Sunset Patio and make it hard for some to think of anything but the superior tastes found at this restaurant. A train depot turned “best pizza place in town,” SBP offers amazing customer service, two bars, and a great view of Whirlpool Fountain and Lake Michigan from its open-air patio. Not to mention, SBP’s famous frosted schooners. If you have an early event and want to continue the fun, definitely jump across the railroad tracks and grab some pizza!


Offering locally grown ingredients, The Buck is known around town for its fresh and high-quality burgers. Burgers are not the only thing this restaurant has going for it, though! From its housemade seasoned chips to over 70 beers on tap, The Buck has a variety of options that will ensure everyone is pleased! You might even feel adventurous enough to begin the Buck Challenge — a challenge of trying at least 17 Michigan-crafted beers in exchange for a highly honored (well, among some..) T-shirt!


If you would like to continue the elegance and romance of your celebration, nothing beats RyeBelles. A simple yet elegant restaurant, RyeBelles features rooftop seating overlooking the bluff. Though after an event will be too late to watch the sunset, the lights from Downtown St. Joseph and below the bluff create a surreal feel while dining on some fresh seafood or taking a sip while seated at RyeBelles’ bar.


Czars 505 offers the best live-music option in Southwest Michigan. Be it rock, country, dub steb, hip hop, bluegrass, or any other genre, Czars has the best bands in the area ready to please. This underground hot spot will provide you and your guests the location to keep dancing the night away after your celebration comes to an end at Shadowland. Music usually begins around 10pm.

Be prepared to have a fun and exciting experience if you choose to walk to Players. With a great selection of food, wine and beer, multiple flatscreen TVs, ample seating, and games including pool and darts, Players is a tasty stop with a bar atmosphere. As a side note, it’s recommended to visit Players during a Detroit game — a tangible buzz of excitement can be felt by the die-hard fans that always seem to be among the customers here and that thrill will just add to your celebration!
