Why We Like This Place

  • It’s got an awesome downtown location. The Ben is in the very heart of Philly, just blocks from the Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, and the historic Old City. There are great restaurants, bars, museums, and markets nearby, and your guests will have no trouble finding lodging among the dozens of hotels in the neighborhood.
  • The venue is absolutely spectacular. The ballroom looks like something out of a turn-of-the-century painting, with its soaring arches, ornately decorated pillars lit with sconces, and magnificent chandeliers. Your cocktail hour is held on the mezzanine level, so guests can enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous room below.
  • You’ll have topnotch event planners and caterers on your side. The staff at The Ben is dedicated to producing flawless weddings, and is always available to answer questions and assist with details large and small. Finley Catering has nearly 40 years experience in the industry, and has created exquisite menus for presidents, celebrities, and star athletes.
