Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Taking its name from the Greek for “gathering place”, this stunning ballroom (set in historic Hotel Callista, a breathtaking mid-1800s mansion in the heart of Norwich) is as visually impressive as it is convenient. 
  • Natural light fills the entire space, and rich vintage details—delicate molding, ornate chandeliers, a glamorous restored bar, warm wood flooring, and more—create a timeless feel. 
  • Guests will swoon over the luxe, boutique-style accommodations, and you have the option to host an outdoor ceremony in nearby Mohegan Park. Available for reservation through the city of Norwich, it boasts a gorgeous pavilion overlooking a pond.
