Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Breathtaking panoramic views of the harbor, dazzling crystal chandeliers, and a mahogany and stained-glass bar make the 4th-floor ballroom a stunning location for your party.
  • Décor with a Latin flair gives the 1st-floor Cabaret a unique ambiance. The venue also comes with a gorgeous hardwood floor for dancing and access to the Plaza courtyard, a garden setting that's ideal for outdoor ceremonies and cocktail receptions.
  • City Lites on the 2nd floor boasts a fun lounge-like atmosphere, highlighted by a vignette of the historic White Tower Diner, a centerpiece attraction when this building housed the City Life Museums.
  • The charming Carrollton Inn just across the garden offers 13 boutique-style rooms and suites with all the modern amenities your guests will need to feel at home.
