Facilities and Capacity

McHale’s Events & Catering has several elaborate wedding venue event spaces that couples can use to host their special events.

These venues include The Cincinnati Club, The Gardens of Park Hills, The Grand Ballroom, The Pinnacle Ballroom, Drees Pavilion and The Center at Fountain Square.

The Cincinnati Club displays art deco-inspired architecture and possesses an ability to transport guests back in time to an era of old-world charm and nostalgia. The venue has four elegant gala halls in which to host a special wedding celebration and is ideally located.

The Gardens of Park Hills contains the Vista Room and Arbor Room, each as equally sophisticated as the next. The Vista Room is a Tuscan-style event space, reflecting an atmosphere of luxury with marble accents and a neutral color palette throughout.

The Arbor Room provides ample space to have an extravagant wedding celebration. It features vintage black and gold ornaments with a low ceiling and an elevated stage.

The Grand Ballroom has an air of eternal affluence and features gorgeous chandeliers and massive windows that let natural light cascade in.

The Pinnacle Ballroom can be found atop the same building as the Grand Ballroom and is an enchanting atmosphere in which to host a celebratory occasion. It features a 26-foot ceiling made of knotty pine that sits above a 25-foot circular dance floor.

The Drees Pavilion is a glamorous location providing both outdoor ceremony spaces such as the gazebo and terrace as well as a refined indoor ballroom. The room's panoramic views of the cityscape skyline are a particular drawing card for this event space.

The Center at Fountain Square is located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. Spacious, simple and chic, The Center is the perfect blank canvas to let your personality shine bright during your event.
