Fantastic purpose- built venue

This gorgeous venue and fantastic team will make your event meet every goal and dream you have. The event space was recently renovated and is perfect for a large gathering. There is great flow between the spaces and parts of the event (e.g. ceremony, cocktail hour, reception etc). The food is absolutely fantastic. The cocktail hour menus are extensive and tasty. So many options and so much food. They even create an entire dessert room like it's WIlly Wonka's Chocolate Factory. The location can't be beat either right downtown next to so many hotels and parking.

Excellence!

The venue was love at first site! The most beautiful location that offered our guest a unique experience right in Center City Philadelphia. The Arts Ballroom team was professional and catered to our every need. We had many options to chose from for our wedding venue and we are thrilled we chose the Arts Ballroom. It was nothing short of excellence.
