Beautiful Location, Great Food, and Amazing Staff

We couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding reception. Our Venue Coordinator, Bri, made sure our entire planning process and day-of preparations went flawlessly. The on-site staff during the event were personable and professional. The food was fantastic. We used Forbes Theatre which had a lot of unique spaces for photo booths, kids activities, outdoor space, and plenty of space to dance. The original architecture in the room is gorgeous for a wedding backdrop.

Great venue

Our original venue canceled due to flooding and we had to find a new venue, four months out! We were lucky to find 500 Pearl had our date available. It’s absolutely beautiful and came with a coordinator! They were thorough and everything they were supposed to do, was done. We were thrilled with this venue. Thank you, Brianna!

A dream come true!

The moment I walked into 500 Pearl I knew it was the venue for us! It checked all of our boxes: in house catering, hotel attached, downtown Buffalo location and we LOVED the 1920s art deco style. Our coordinator Bri was absolutely wonderful to work with, she was able to answer every question we had and provided great insight and advice and was very reassuring during the whole process. We couldn't be more thrilled with how our wedding turned out, we had multiple people tell us it was the best they've attended!
