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 300 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.

Services Offered
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:

  • Bridal suite
  • Cleanup
  • Event planning
  • Event rentals
  • Lighting/sound
  • Outside vendors
  • Parking
  • Setup
  • Valet
  • Wireless internet

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.

Beautiful Venue for a Wedding

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Ariel International. We cannot say enough about our experience. The views from the roof for the wedding and cocktail hour were spectacular. The reception space was equally wonderful. Our guests could not say enough about how beautiful and comfortable the space was. The staff was so accommodating and wonderful leading up to the event and throughout our event. We appreciated the convenience of the on sight ready rooms. We needed to drop off lots of cookies for a cookie table. They let us drop them off the day before which was so helpful. I would highly recommend the Ariel International Center for an event.

No complaints

We got married 10/22/22 at this venue and were utterly amazed! Working with Tracey was amazing & she was always available for questions we had. The staff was accommodating and quick to respond. The views here are out of this world. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is getting married!

Can we get married there again?

Ariel International Center was the perfect place for us to get married. Tracey, who was our coordinator, was an absolute rockstar. She works harder than any other person you'll meet throughout your planning process. Tracey made everything super seamless and was happy accommodate all of our ideas! We had a family tragedy occur the morning of our wedding and Tracey didn't bat an eye at helping us flip our ceremony and cocktail hour. She was an incredible partner throughout the whole planning process. The venue is beautiful and we loved the historic industrial vibe, but working with Tracey really made the process unforgettable. If I could, would get married there again in a heartbeat.
