Why We Like This Place

  • You can literally “set the stage” for your wedding ceremony. This historic building offers two separate ballrooms, both of which feature a raised stage with ample space for exchanging vows and serving cocktails while the room is reset for your reception.
  • Two ballrooms equal two totally different moods. The Lower Ballroom presents an intimate, speakeasy atmosphere with silver walls and an attached Lounge, while the spacious, gold and white Grand Ballroom boasts crystal chandeliers and a 30-foot ceiling.
  • The catering choices are sure to please any palate. Their in-house chef not only creates a far-ranging menu of favorites but will also customize for vegan, vegetarian, ethnic or gluten-free dishes. And, if you like, you can even hire an outside caterer!
