Grand Ballroom: 2nd Floor Package

The Grand Ballroom is the largest ballroom in Louisville with a stationary stage. The room features time period box seating and 27-foot-tall ceilings lined with the original 1924 chandeliers. The Grand Ballroom is located on the second floor of the Henry Clay and includes the South Room which features mirrored columns, gorgeous hand carved crown molding, decorative wood features and luscious red carpeted floors. Another elegant feature of the 2nd floor is the Atrium overlooking the baby grand piano in the Grand Lobby.

The Atrium showcases original 1924 stained-glass ceiling tiles, wrought iron handrails, original granite floors and is outlined in beautifully ornamented columns. The 2nd floor offers two sets of restrooms and can host intimate weddings and receptions while hosting large parties of 500 plus guests. The Grand Ballroom has featured artists such as Aretha Franklin, Hall & Oats, Allison Kraus, Heuy Lewis and the News, and even notable people like Muhammad Ali and President Obama!

Beaux Arts Ballroom: 4th Floor Package

The Beaux Arts Ballroom is our second Ballroom located on the 4th Floor. Slightly smaller than the Grand Ballroom, The Beaux Arts (“Bow Arts”) evokes timeless elegance in its grand size and architectural character. Brocade style panels, decorative trim, original stained-glass windows and ceiling tiles, two colossal white columns and sweeping corners all embody romance and intimate stately elegance. 4th floor rentals include the Billiards Room, the Tavern Room and the outdoor Courtyard exclusive to your party. These rooms can serve as areas for a cocktail hour, a small ceremony, or space for bars, food stations and even photo booths.

Exclusive to the Beaux Arts and 4th Floor Rentals is access to our Bridal Suite. Available 10am morning of the wedding, our Bridal Suite includes: a full kitchen, laundry machines, a bathroom with Hollywood beauty lighting, lounging and preparation areas! These amenities are housed in a private area across the hall from the Ballroom for all bride and bridal party preparations. The room is lined in large windows overlooking downtown Louisville, filling the space with ample natural light.

Loved this venue

I knew going into wedding planning I wanted a space with a vintage vibe. I got so much more the just that when I held my wedding at The Henry Clay. Not only is the Beaux Arts Ballroom absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained, we got access to the entire fourth floor for the wedding. This included 2 other large rooms (one of which we used for cocktail hour and one we used to store items for the room flip) and a getting ready suite for the bridal party. The suite includes a mini kitchen, full bathroom (which I used all night) tons of seating, and great natural light for hair and makeup. The bones of the ballroom are historical and beautiful and you can do so much to transform it into your dream!
