Ariel Pearl Center is a historic wedding venue located in Cleveland, Ohio. This venue, which is right in Old Brooklyn, has a charming style and rich history. In fact, the venue itself is situated right in a historic bank building. The bank was originally designed back in 1923 by both Hubbell and Benes. It was originally called the Pearl Street Savings and Trust Bank, but over the years transitioned into an event venue. Couples today can host their bridal shower, ceremony, and reception in this elegant space.
The exterior of the Ariel Pearl Center is quite dramatic with its many large arched windows and architectural details. However, the real treat is when you step inside this historic space and begin to take in all of the marble columns and floors. There is a great deal of decorative plasterwork on the ceiling along with crystal chandeliers with add a stunning complementing touch. For your indoor ceremony, you are able to enjoy the Grand Hall with Rotunda and Vault. This site is quite open and spacious, and can easily accommodate up to 250 of your loved ones if you don't incorporate a dance floor. If you do decide to incorporate a dance floor, the capacity is a bit smaller but you are still able to accommodate up to 200 guests. There are also other indoor spaces set aside such as the Cocktail/ Ceremony Room and the Fireplace Room for hosting other aspects of the wedding.
If you would like to entertain your guests with a dance floor on your wedding day, the team at Ariel Pearl Center can help you arrange that within your site. Additionally, there are tables and chairs at the venue that you can use. The team is even more than happy to handle and take care of all your setup and cleanup needs to make your wedding day run more smoothly for you. For the convenience of your entire wedding party, there is wheelchair access as well as parking.

Dannie and staff were great! Ariel Pearl Center is absolutely beautiful, and once the flowers and decor are added, it's truly stunning. I would recommend this venue to anyone thinking about having their wedding here. A few things to note: they can't hold the day before your wedding for a rehearsal - if someone wants to book it for that day, they will tell you you have to find another place for your rehearsal. This didn't happen to me, but I was nervous that it might. Something to keep in mind. Also, they have no liquor license, so it's BYOB which was good for our budget and also nice that we could bring in everything we wanted. They have seven preferred caterers, which made it easy to choose one, but you can also bring in an outside caterer for a fee. Overall a great experience!Sent on 12/03/2019

Beautiful venue. No other compares
You will pay at least 4500.00 just for hall and fees. Vendors for catering available. We brought in a 15 ft uhaul to stage the already gorgeous but stark venue. If you want an over the top amazing fairytale wedding this is your place. Tracey is great to work with(goes above and beyond) The owners need to give her a raise.. The owners need to have corners and details deep cleaned more often ( we are pickier than most). Sausalito catering was amazing. A suggestion to venue and caterers wear nicer clothes for professionalism. Not hard to wear a white shirt black pants. A few guests commented on this.Sent on 12/09/2020

Beautiful, but Beware
Originally planned to have wedding at Ariel Pearl Center. But due to the pandemic and concerns for safety my husband and I decided to cancel. Beautiful venue, but lacks quality customer service. Poor communication with event managers and owner. And no type of monetary refund for canceling during a pandemic was offered after paying the venue charge in full.Sent on 11/22/2020
