About

On WeddingWire since 2008

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
For your special day, Mavris Arts & Event Center offers both indoor and outdoor locations, three banquet halls, a speakeasy, and a rooftop patio. 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.

An absolute dream

We had our wedding at Mavris 10/22/22 and it was an absolute DREAM. The place is absolutely stunning. We had Claire as our planner and she was SO HELPFUL, answering all my non-stop emails all the way up to the day of the wedding and she made the day-of go so smoothly. We got constant comments about how AMAZING the food was - many said the best food they’ve had at a wedding ever. We have absolutely no regrets about picking the Mavris for our wedding, we would do it over and over. It was the best day ever thanks to the beautiful event center itself and all the amazing workers.

The best day thanks to Mavris!

Do yourself a favor and book your wedding here!! We had our dream wedding here in Sept 2022 and I wouldn’t change a thing! From start to finish we were treated so well. Always made to feel a priority, very detailed process of planning and wonderful staff. I couldn’t recommend Mavris enough! Olivia was our coordinator and made our day a breeze! She was so prepared and helpful. Mavris made a stressful wedding planning process not stressful!

An Absolute Dream

Mavris is a gorgeous industrial-style venue. With 3 floors and an outdoor space there were a ton of places we could hold the different parts of our day and lots of places for pictures! The staff was so helpful and very responsive, which is honestly what I valued highly during the planning process as a bride. We had more than the average amount of dietary restrictions also, and the catering team was able to work around a lot of this to help us feed everyone! I couldn't rave about them enough!
