    Outstanding venue

    I had my wedding at The Arts Ballroom, under the new ownership of John and his brother. From the very beginning, John was very accommodating with the packaging and pricing. After we booked the date, our event specialist Alaina Pacella was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! She was what every bride wants. Quick with responses, resourceful, and devoted. I could tell Alaina treated this wedding like it was her own. She found a way to make all of my 'extra' requests happen without any hassle. (free soft pretzels delivered to guests as they left, sparklers, extra food requests..ect.) During the reception, Alaina and John both worked tirelessly to make the event fabulous for everyone! They communicated with my other vendors before and during the event to make sure I didn't worry about a thing!
    It is very rare to have a venue owner work during a Saturday night wedding. That proves how devoted he is to his clients. Our reception ended with a HUGE dessert room which was one of the highlights. All of our guests continue to rave about the food at our wedding.


    I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married in the city. I chose this venue because it was the best package I saw. The venue itself is very clean and fresh looking; as many others look dirty and worn down.

    a hidden gem in the heart of center city!

    The Arts Ballroom is a magnificent hidden gem in the heart of Center City! If you have every dreamed of getting your City Hall wedding shot, look no further this is the venue for you. The ballroom is absolutely stunning, modern but traditional, with high ceilings and amazing lighting. The venue space flows perfectly, and the set up is amazing. The venue has tons of detail that makes it a unique and gorgeous ballroom that your guests will not forget. Beyond the space, the staff are the nicest people I have ever work with. From day one, they made it clear that their purpose was to make our dreams come true. They never said no anything and worked with us to build and menu/contract that fit our dreams. The food was delcious and there certainly was no shortage. I rarely hear people rave about food at weddings, but my guests could not stop talking about how blown away they were. From the cocktail hour filled with lamb chops, sushi, paella and more, to the dessert room with every sweat you could ever dream of including a smores station and donut wall, no one left hungry. Even better was the beautiful bar and amazing top shelf alcohol. The best part of the venue is the amazing event staff. Our coordinator, Alaina, was the nicest most professional person and made wedding planning the least stressful thing ever. She was always so calm and reassuring, and made sure that we had nothing to worry about. She was fabulous at being in contact with all our vendors, and made sure that I never had anything to stress about. She is extremely responsive on email/phone, and always followed up on all our questions. On wedding day she was somehow always everywhere she needed to be, and made sure that we had the best time ever. She checked in with our parents frequently, and really made everyone at the wedding feel cared for. The servers and bartenders were extremely professional and great at their jobs, and had fun the entire night. The owners are great and are very visible, they make sure to attend your prep meetings and they are present for the event to make sure everything runs smoothly. The Arts Ballroom far exceeded any expectations I had for our wedding, and I cannot rave about it enough. It is truly a special place, and any couple would be beyond lucky to get married here! I cannot wait to have a reason to throw another party so that I can have it there!
