Facilities and Capacity
Arcade Underground offers both indoor and outdoor venue options for a one-of-a-kind ceremony and reception. Inside, the historic building features beautiful, full-length brick walls, high polished concrete floors, and an industrial girder-style ceiling. Outside, their intimate courtyard is surrounded with ivy covered brick walls and one wall of iconic vintage white arched doors.

Arcade Underground offers many wedding-related services for a seamless experience. Their talented staff will assist in planning your event and bringing your vision to life for your special day. This venue has ample parking available for you and your guests, and is also wheelchair accessible.
When these gold rush era buildings were built, the front door and first floor were street level. Due to the Sacramento River flooding, entire blocks of the town were raised, so the first floor became the basement level and the second floor became the new business level. Therefore, this unique venue is actually underground, reached by stairs or a convenient elevator.
Arcade Underground is located in the heart of historical Old Sacramento, California. It is centrally located minutes from the Sacramento River.

A rough road but successful day
Booking our wedding at Arcade Underground made the planning process long and stressful. We booked in August of 2017 and found out via Facebook that the Venue Manager had changed in November of 2017. No one notified us of this so we contacted them and they did not have record of our deposit or contract. We got everything squared away and the 2nd manager was helpful but seemed in over her head having to clean up the mess the 1st manager left behind. Then a few months later she left and a 3rd manager came in. This manager is extremely busy as she manages multiple venues and we felt like we were not a priority. We had to contact her multiple times to get a response which she later said was because of poor service in the venue. She also had new rules and fees we had to follow. Some of them were understandable as it was clear she was trying to run Arcade Underground as a legitimate business but it still was stressful with the many changes. We requested a new contract and the one she gave us had so many errors and irrelevant information. We went back and forth revising the contract probably 10 times. In addition to the rotating managers, the venue itself posed many issues. It is old and doesn't seem to be maintained very well. The elevator has been broken for many months and the day before our wedding there was a huge plumbing issue. In the end, the manager worked hard to make things right for us and our wedding turned out great. The staff they provided to help with the day of logistics were helpful and professional. Hopefully the owners will invest more time and money into maintaining the property and keeping good staff and management running the place.Sent on 10/28/2018
