Facilities and Capacity
The Classic Center offers six elegant ceremony and reception rooms for weddings of every size and budget.

Two of the most popular ballrooms, the Olympia and Parthenon, feature vintage decors, elegant white drapery, and wood dance floors for up to 150 guests. The more intimate Foundry Street Building is a recently restored warehouse that offers a more industrial chic and modern ambiance. It features exposed brick and wood beams, as well as the original warehouse doors. Four smaller banquet halls are available in the main building. The largest of the event spaces, The Athena Ballrooms, offer space for up to 500 guests in a theatre-style ceremony or 300 guests for a banquet reception. These ballrooms have white drapes, high ceilings, and chandeliers above the dance floor to promote the utmost elegance and sophistication.
The Classic Center staff work together to make your wedding dream come true. You’ll be in contact with an event coordinator as well as a catering manager to plan out every detail of your day. The in-house caterer, Levy, provides all food and drink for your big day including a custom banquet meal or a variety of hors d’oeuvres and buffet meal options. The event coordinator will then work with you to design the floor plan, coordinate your wedding day timeline with vendors, and execute the finishing touches for your event.
