The Union Pacific Depot served as Salt Lake City's railroad transportation center from 1909 though the 1970's and still retains the historical charm of the early 20th century. The most impressive room, the Grand Hall, features a domed ceiling rising three stories above the central waiting area. There are two oil-on-canvas paintings by San Francisco artist John McQuarrie depicting great moments in Utah's history. Beautiful stained glass windows on the west wall feature a series of various kinds of rail transportation. All of the magnificent artwork remains today.
One of the outstanding architectural structures in Utah, the historical renovated and restored Union Pacific Depot will provide the perfect venue for your most special event.

The place is beautiful and the wedding turned out great. We had 200 guests and it seemed a little empty. So definitely it is a bigger wedding. The parking is at the actual gateway. But you only get 25 with your contract and each additional one is $1 for the whole day. They are flexible as well. We paid an extra hour to stay longer (past midnight).Sent on 04/23/2012
We told them how we wanted our layout and they did it.
We liked working with them.

We loved having our wedding here! The location is amazing and the staff was great to work with! It needed very little decoration because the building itself is gorgeous. It's the perfect size and all our pictures turned out beautiful!Sent on 04/13/2015

This is a beautiful amazing venue my biggest disappointment is the echo in the hall. I feel like it was a total killer for such a beautiful artistic room. They should invest in acoustics and sound proof tools for such a large grand venue. Everything else tho was beautiful. It's just hard when you can't hear any speeches or when you are expecting a nice romantic seated dinner and the sound is super loud with the echos of people talking.Sent on 12/22/2015
I have performed several weddings here, and each time, the venue is breathtaking. DO NOT pass this up - be sure to take a look!
The Grand Hall has historic charm, with a large spacious room, located downtown near the best outdoor mall Salt Lake City has to offer! You have many set up and decorating options with this space. They have enough tables and chairs to handle large events. The staff is always helpful and kind. We highly recommend The Grand Hall for weddings, large corporate parties and more.
The Grand Hall at the Gateway truly lives up to its name....GRAND! Culinary Crafts has catered hundreds of events at the Grand Hall from Western Nights to elegant Black Tie Celebrations and this location has it all! The Grand Hall is conveniently located in downtown Salt Lake and is a truly unique Utah venue. We are proud to endorse the Grand Hall at the Gateway and recommend it as one of the best venues in town!
