The Ariel International Center, a rooftop wedding venue, welcomes couples in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This venue offers amazing 360-degree views of the Cleveland skyline and Lake Erie. It is located five minutes from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in downtown Cleveland.
Facilities and Capacity
This venue welcomes up to 350 guests for a couple’s big day. The Ariel International Center offers two event spaces for couples: the Skyline Lake Room and the Skyline Lakeview Rooftop. The Skyline Lakeview Rooftop features a wooden floor with a subtle checkerboard pattern and a railing with wire that doesn't obscure a couple’s view of the surrounding cityscape or lake. Couples can marry with Lake Erie as the backdrop or the city, with a vintage water tower in the foreground. The Skyline Lake Room features floor-to-ceiling windows for the same breathtaking views as the roof. This room’s high wood-beam ceiling features dark polished wood and light fixtures that give off a warm romantic glow. Earth-tone walls and international artwork add to the charm of this space.
This space opens its doors to couples hosting bridal showers, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners in addition to ceremonies and receptions. For any wedding-related event, couples will find services that include:
This venue is approximately 100 years old. This rustic and historic red brick building on the Cleveland waterfront was purchased by Ariel Ventures, LLC and underwent a dramatic restoration in 2012 to turn it into the gorgeous event venue couples will find today. Ariel Ventures, LLC is an entrepreneurial, 100-percent women-owned, minority firm founded in 2001.

Dream come true
I don't think there is enough room in this comment box to express how deeply appreciative my wife and I are for the team at Ariel. We booked our wedding festivities (ceremony, cocktail hour, & reception) in fall of 2018 for our spring 2020 wedding. They held on as long as they could during Covid, to avoid having to screw up our plans. They even allowed us to have a photo shoot on site with our 2nd photographer. When the state shut down in 2020, they allowed us to push back our celebration date to 2021 (for what would be our 1 year anniversary, because we ended up still getting married on our back porch). Come January 2021, my wife and I were very apprehensive about continuing with our plans, given the remaining health and safety concerns relating to Covid. Our event coordinator, Tracey, did everything in her power to make it the most "normal" event as possible. Luckily, the CDC restrictions lifted and we were allowed to have dancing and the open bar. It was a long 3 years worth of planning and waiting. When the day finally came, it was down-pouring...... ALL DAY. Tracey jumped right into action and helped coordinate our last minute changes. We couldn't have done any of this without Tracey. She truly is such an amazing soul with the best personality and she has a passion for making miracles happen to bring "the vision" to life. We will always be thankful for Tracey and the management team at Ariel. We are so blessed to have finally been able to celebrate in our dream venue with the people we love most.Sent on 05/04/2021

Where our perfect day started and finished!
We had a vision for our wedding - exposed brick brewery themed wedding. We looked all over Cleveland and we were getting discouraged. Ariel International SAVED us. This venue is STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL. Not to mention, Jessica, our wedding coordinator was fabulous. She helped us every step of the way - answering dozens of emails from me, and making great recommendations on our final walkthrough. She made things stress free and having her there on our day was amazing.
I love that the venue for the ceremony is the rooftop, but there's a backup location provided, so I never stressed about weather. The Venue was set up for us the morning before so we could see what it would look like in case we wanted to make any changes.
The rest of the staff was amazing. We didn't even notice the security guard, and the bartender kept mine and my husbands drinks full all night! I never went to the bar once - she came to me!
If you want an easy, stress free day with a beautiful venue, it's highly recommended!Sent on 10/29/2019

Areil International was the perfect venue for me to re-invigorate an annual event that had become stale. Our guests absolutely loved the venue, the convenience, charm of the building, and the view. The staff were so helpful before, during, and after our event. Five stars, for certain.Sent on 09/11/2017
