This venue deserves more than 5 stars all around!
I wish I could rate the Arts Ballroom more that 5 stars, because it really deserves it! My husband and I were recently married there (Feb 2020), and our experience from the moment we walked in for our first tour to the last few minutes of our wedding day was outstanding. This was the first venue we looked at, and we walked out knowing we didn't need to see any other venue. The service, staff and management were spectacular. Kayleigh was our wedding coordinator, who was extremely accommodating, responsive and a pleasure to work with. Her and her team made all of our "wants" come true. The compliments and praise (especially for their cocktail hour, food and service!) are continuing to pour in from our guests, which makes booking this venue the best decision we made to celebrate our special day!Sent on 03/20/2020

We had such an amazing time celebrating our wedding at the Arts Ballroom!! My husband and I can't say how much we loved this venue enough. The staff was incredibly helpful and Kayleigh was an awesome coordinator. All of our guests also loved the venue, especially two separate rooms for the dancing/eating area and the bar/cocktail hour room. The food was also DELICIOUS and everyone loved the amount of cocktail hour food, dinner, and DESSERTSSent on 03/16/2020

So happy we booked the Arts Ballroom!
My husband and I booked the Arts Ballroom about 2 years before our wedding and we were blown away with their professionalism! Alaina made sure every detail of our wedding was perfect, and we had a ton of guests describe it as the best wedding they've ever been to. The quality and quantity of food provided was outstanding and the dessert room was unbelievable! We have been in and been too dozens of weddings and have never experienced the level of service we received from the Arts Ballroom. While it might not be as well known as other venues in Philadelphia - it is 100% WORTH it! Book your wedding here before the word gets out about this hidden gem :) and request Aliana!Sent on 12/05/2019
One of Philly's hidden gems! This venue is absolutely gorgeous! When you walk into the room, it will take your breath away! Marble staircase, beautiful crystal chandeliers, lots of great space! Stunning venue!
Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
Arts Ballroom is a great space for your special occasion. The food is of course delicious and the staff is very professional.
