Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 1913 landmark, nestled in the heart of Long Beach, was once showcased in leading architectural journals as a dramatic exemplar of the grandeur and richness of the era. The second floor space has been thoughtfully reimagined as the Sanctuary, a luxurious grand ballroom accented by breathtaking 30-foot coffered ceilings and soaring windows that flood the space with light.
  • Say "I do" al fresco in the large outdoor plaza, then sneak away to snap photos in the classic black-and-white foyer or lush chef's garden. Meanwhile, your guests can retire to the industrial-chic Parlor, studded with columns and boasting original brick detailing, for a charming cocktail hour.
  • The in-house professionals from renowned Bite Catering Couture are experts in designing fabulous menus and thoughtfully imagined, beautifully presented events. Creativity and customization is welcomed here; craft your own personalized vision supported by the detail-focused team, innovative high-end vendor partners, and spectacular spaces.
