Mavris Arts & Event Center is a wedding venue located in Indianapolis, Indiana that melds contemporary sophistication with historic charm. The building dates back to 1883, when it was constructed along the train tracks of downtown Indianapolis and served as a terminal for grocery imports. Renovation on the warehouse began in 1999, and today it boasts an industrial-chic design that creates a romantic and nostalgic ambiance. For more than 10 years, the venue has welcomed couples through its elegant doors to celebrate their momentous occasions in style.

Facilities and Capacity

Outside, the lush garden and tall fence create seclusion and tranquility for ceremonies and cocktail hours. Inside, the event center has three levels of glossy hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and original beams. The top floor provides the most cavernous space for your celebration and comes with both an East and West Room. In these halls you will find a grand piano, a pool table, and comfortable sofas and plenty of room for dinner and dancing. The Rooftop Patio features spectacular views of the Indianapolis skyline as well as a wooden pergola, fire pit, and comfortable lounge furniture. For smaller soirees, the Speakeasy is an atmospheric spot to host your festivities. This private and exclusive lounge has its own separate entrance, stamped concrete floors, original brick and hardwood beams, and a clandestine and intimate feel.

    Mavris Wedding Reception Review

    This venue is absolutely perfect! Two reasons that led my fiance and I to pick this venue was because it had in-house catering, and we got a wedding coordinator to help 6 months out. All of the food was so tasty, and they have a ton of options to choose from. Our wedding coordinator, Olivia, was incredible. She made the weeks leading up to the wedding and the actual day so much easier and less stressful for me. I don't know what we would have done without her. They worked with all of our other vendors to make it easy on us. It unfortunately rained on our wedding day so we couldn't take a lot of pictures outside, but our pictures were still awesome because of the lighting and beauty of this venue. It was everything we wanted and I highly recommend!

    The Mavris brought every last dream and detail to life for us!

    We had originally intended on a December 2020 wedding at the Mavris but due to Covid we rescheduled for October 2021. The entire staff at the Mavris (especially our coordinator Maddie) was absolutely amazing throughout our entire planning experience. They were kind, thorough, and proactive. We were able to bring every last dream and detail to life. The service & food was spectacular and the space looked stunning. We would 10/10 recommend the Mavris to friends & family.

    A Magical Experience...

    Working with Olivia and the Mavris team was a dream come true. I would have no hesitation working with this team over and over again. They understood our vision and made our dream wedding reception come true.

    We asked the Mavris team to recreate our favorite spicy margarite recipe and they hit it out of the park. We have had nothing but postive feedback from all of our guests. 10/10 would recommend the Mavris day in and day out.
