Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located in a century-old building that originally served as a vocational school, this gorgeous brick beauty takes up an entire city block. It's been given new life as an innovative mixed-use project, providing space for creative and entrepreneurial endeavors, as well as some truly incredible event spaces.
  • You can wed in the vintage auditorium, which boasts design features like elaborate Art Nouveau ceiling lights and a large stage with an ornate proscenium. Follow with a celebration in the Boys’ Gym, which features its original wood floor and towering two-story windows that fill the room with light.
  • Treat guests to a breathtaking view of the Center City from the rooftop terrace. An unforgettable place to exchange vows, it’s also the perfect setting for a cocktail hour, treating your guests to an unforgettable sunset.
