Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located in the heart of Birmingham, this nonprofit philanthropic event center was founded in 1923 as a place to welcome all members of the community for important life events. The elegant brick and stone exterior is gorgeously maintained and reflects the history of the facility.
  • With a lofty 22-foot ceiling and sparkling chandeliers, the spacious South Main Ballroom provides a timelessly beautiful backdrop for your reception. It features gas fireplaces, a built-in dance floor, and a spotlit stage that can easily accommodate a band or DJ.
  • The delicious in-house catering menu includes hors d'oeuvres, a champagne toast, complimentary cake cutting, coffee and tea, a five-hour open bar, and a variety of classic entrées, salads, sides, and local specialties to choose from.
