Why We Like This Place

  • It embodies the architectural elegance of a bygone era: The Old Superior Courtroom where ceremonies and receptions are held features marble walls, terrazzo floors and beautiful arched windows. Need more space? The Grand Lobby and Harrison Room are also available for evening and weekend events.
  • Extra amenities include a spacious bridal suite with private bath and kitchenette, a groom’s room, and a baby grand piano. Another plus—the venue is centrally located in downtown Decatur, just minutes away from Atlanta.
  • Your photographer will love it: The building’s impressive façade, with its soaring Corinthian columns and multipaned arched windows makes a great backdrop for photos.
