Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Housed in the former home of Wells and Coverly Department Store, this unique spot in downtown Syracuse is a charming blend of vintage and modern, having been thoughtfully purpose-renovated with an eye toward hosting awesome events.
  • Three unique ballrooms—Betts, Wells, and Coverly—each offer their own distinct vibe, and feature classic urban-chic elements like exposed brick, open-rafter ceilings, hardwood floors, steel beams, and large widows that allow for tons of natural light.
  • Choose your favorite space, or buy out the whole building for an all-out bash. In-house catering (some of the best in central NY) makes menu planning a breeze, and your caring event specialists will work hard to ensure your celebration is all love and no stress.
