About Mavris Arts & Event Center

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.

    Absolutely Incredible!

    I can’t recommend the Mavris enough! Our guests had an amazing time at our wedding and so many people have complimented the team at Mavris. They are all incredibly professional and hospitable. We worked with Olivia for about a year and we were constantly impressed. She is so good at her job and has a wonderful personality! On our wedding day, she made sure that everything went off without a hitch, so we could truly enjoy the day and spend time with our guests.

    We booked the venue before COVID-19 and then had to make many adjustments, but their team was flexible and accommodating as much as possible. The space is beautiful and is perfect for social distancing. Everyone enjoyed the night safely and no one got sick from our wedding. We also lost our DJ due to COVID, but were able to use the venue’s sound system and microphones for music and toasts. They honored my requests to use different sizes of tables for the reception to seat guests only with their household and space out everything. Their food service is well thought out. Dinner plates are served with covers, condiments are in individual servings for each guest, and all employees wear masks and change gloves frequently. The food is also amazing and the chef even makes his own gluten-free bread. That is unheard of!

    You should feel confident booking your event at Mavris. You will be in good hands and love the experience!

    Definitely recommend!

    Mavris has been exceptional so far! We decided to book this venue bc it has amazing views of the city in their outdoor spaces as well as very cool industrial chic indoor spaces! The wood, brick, and piping is all gorgeous. The individuals we have worked with have been quick with correspondence and so incredibly helpful in all of our planning and many questions. Would definitely recommend!
