Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A historic space with modern flourishes, this former five-and-dime in downtown St. Petersburg has been meticulously renovated. The original 1920 clay brick walls have been preserved and now surround a Brazilian wood dance floor ready to welcome your guests.
  • The private courtyard makes a lovely ceremony spot. A thicket of lush, dramatically lit 30-foot-tall bamboo surrounds the area, and twinkling café lights span the patio. And before you exchange vows, the wedding parties can prepare in the VIP bridal lounge and additional "get ready suite."
  • Top-of-the-line audiovisual and lighting services offer nightclub quality sound, adaptable color washes allow you to create a customizable ambiance, and a video/slideshow system is perfect for projecting your fave photos or home movies.
