Wow. Just, WOW.
Arts Ballroom absolutely blew my expectations out of the water. This venue was the only one I visited by myself. From the second I walked in over a year and a half ago, I instantly knew it would be the one. I worked with Alaina since last July and I can't put into words how incredible shes been. Her response time is impeccable. She's so consultative and remains calm at all times. She made me feel so comfortable with my decisions but also wasn't afraid to give advice about what may be best or what may need to be altered. I sent her pages of questions and when I went to meet her, she already had them printed out with all of the answers ready to go.Sent on 10/08/2019
Onto the guest reviews and food. Absolutely incredible. My guests were BLOWN away. I heard them shouting about the cotton candy and milkshakes from across the room. It was like kids in a candy store. On top of that, cocktail hour was absurd. People were raving about the stations, ranging from fondue to steak and the raw bar. I had about 100/160 of my guests actually walk up during the wedding and say it was the best wedding they've been to, including half of their OWN CHILDREN.
Arts Ballroom gave us so much love on the night of our wedding and our attendant was also such a pleasure to work with. She made sure I was taken care of, had water to drink and that I had time to sit down and eat my dinner. They completely calmed me down and gave me quite frankly, the best experience and wedding night ever. Thank you to Alaina and the entire staff (even management on-site) for giving my husband and I an evening that we'll never forget.
If you want a top venue that screams class and elegance, this is your spot. Highly, highly recommended.

The initial visit was very professional. I couldn’t even think of any questions at the time because they were all answered during the presentation. The space is beautiful and our planner, Alaina has been a delight. She has welcomed as many visits before our wedding as necessary and has been very responsive to my questions via email. I can’t wait for our wedding day!Sent on 12/14/2018

Alaina and her team were the best. For a person that never wanted to get married...I would ABSOLUTELY have my wedding here again. It was the greatest nigh of my life and the venue was perfect. To sum it up:Sent on 09/24/2019
- Alaina was extraordinary when it came to pre-planning, answering all of our questions, day of set and making sure all the attention to detail was taken care of.
- The menu was limitless and we didnt even get the highest package. The feedback from all my guest is that they were full of the cocktail hour appetizers. They said it was the best cocktail hour they have ever been too. The sea bass was great; I highly recommend it. Everything was so good that even forgot about the dessert hour until we saw guest coming out with cotton candy...like who really has cotton candy. They personally set aside for me the root beer float I asked for 6 months in advance.
The venue options for lighting was great. All of our pictures looked great on the steps. We had plenty of room for a DJ and a salsa band with 12 tables.
We are very happy that we were able to have an affordable wedding downtown and get more food than we asked for. We honestly had no clue that the package included all the food and drinks that was served. You will be very happy with this venue.
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.
