Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A beloved destination since first opening its doors in 1927, this special ballroom—perched above the Indiana Repertory Theater in the heart of downtown Indianapolis—boasts opulent historic design, a huge stage, and a truly impressive 100 foot-wide dance floor.
  • It was crafted to emulate a European village, with a perimeter featuring ornate woodwork and a stucco façade, adorned by grapevine-laden arched doorways and balconies. Overhead, a domed ceiling mimics a star-studded night sky, complete with soft clouds and a crescent moon.
  • Their events team is one of the best in the biz, and can help you pull off just about anything you’re dreaming of, going way beyond menus and seating charts—theme development, unique entertainment options, pro-level audio/visual execution, food styling, and more.
