Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 1920s gem occupies a perfect spot in downtown Tampa, within walking distance of visitor favorites like the Riverwalk, the Florida Aquarium, and more. If you’re interested in a church ceremony, you’ll find both an Episcopal and Catholic church within a five-minute walk.
  • Each space, whether intimate or grand, boasts its own elegant style. We love the timeless charm and wraparound deck of the Floridan Palace Ballroom, but we’re just as enamored with the Crystal Dining Room, with its opulently embellished ceiling and dramatic chandeliers.
  • Your personal planning team will help you take care of all the details, including “before and after” events—engagement and bachelor/bachelorette parties, showers, even hotel room blocks and distribution of welcome baskets.
