Why We Like This Place

Things that make historic Key Hall a unique wedding venue:

• Its glamorous mix of old and new: The venue, which previously served as a bank for 100 years, still retains its turn-of-the-century charm. Italian marble, gleaming terrazzo floors and a 40-foot-high ceiling are just a few of the elegant features you’ll find in the 4,000-square-foot main room.

• Special lighting options: Want a sultry ambiance? Go for the blue uplighting. Prefer a more festive feeling? Try purple or pink!

• Applause-worthy cuisine: Mazzone Catering will wine and dine your guests with packages whose names (Broadway Offerings, Curtains Up and Opening Night) pay homage to the hall’s location in the theater and entertainment center of downtown Schenectady.

• The photogenic bank vault: The original vault is a fun spot for photos, and it also lets your guests take a nostalgic step back to another era.
