Why We Like This Place

  • You can go for drama with a full stage, theatrical lighting and marquee entry. The Ballroom’s 22-foot ceiling, large dance floor, multimedia displays, and ample space for a band or DJs make hosting an event easy. Plus, there’s a patio for cocktails al fresco.
  • Traditional Italian fare with a modern twist is served along with local favorites. Long-time restaurant and banquet pros, Anthony’s Caterers, are known for their fresh, high-quality recipes and fun stations featuring cheesesteak, pierogie and kielbasa.
  • It offers a convenient South Philly location with nearby hotels. The staff can help you arrange overnight accommodations for out-of-town guests, in addition to assisting with flowers, décor, entertainment and custom wedding cakes.
