    Douglas Entrance is the place to have your next event. We had our wedding there, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G is all I'm going to say.
    The building is historic and its beauty is beyond words. Raul was awesome, very accommodating and helpful. He did all that was possible to make our day special.
    I couldn't think of another venue to have our wedding, the pictures came out so amazing!

    Beautiful venue. Such a unique spot in Coral Gables that hasn't been too over done. With the right lighting, the room looks gorgeous in the evening. Raul, the ballroom manager, is awesome to work with and was very accessible. No last minute surprises.
