The Oviatt is an Art Deco-inspired wedding venue located on a rooftop in Downtown Los Angeles, California. Chic and sophisticated, this space was originally built in 1928 as a lavish penthouse. It belonged to the building’s owner and well-known eccentric businessman, James Oviatt. Now transformed into an alluring event space, it can host up to 120 guests. Look forward to having all the assistance you need from the venue’s knowledgeable and attentive staff. These experts have the necessary experience to help you design and flawlessly execute an unforgettable milestone celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

Defined by its opulent ambiance, The Oviatt exudes an authentic sense of old-world charm. There are several penthouse rooms and a two-story rooftop terrace for you to use during the nuptial festivities. Interior features include Lalique glass decor, mahogany furniture, parquet wood floors, and many carved woodworks. Despite a seemingly niche aesthetic, the rooms have a high degree of flexibility for you to incorporate your own sense of style. Outside, the terrace is spacious and provides panoramic views of Downtown Los Angeles; it particularly comes alive at night amongst the city lights. The staff is happy to erect a tent on the top level during certain seasons or if the weather requires it. Other notable facilities include the fully-equipped get-ready suites, a photobooth, and a serene cocktail area.

Services Offered

When you rent The Oviatt, you have access to an array of event items like banquet tables and black linens. What’s more, you are entitled to the food and beverage services courtesy of the venue’s in-house catering team, DLS Events. The dedicated staff also provide set-up and clean-up services to ensure the smooth running of your function from start to finish.

    Amazing Venue and Staff

    As planners and coordinators, it's refreshing working with a venue that makes our job easier! Gabe and his staff all were so flexible and willing to help our staff ensure the clients were happy. The ultimate goal was to make this wedding look and it definitely showed, everyone was so willing to make sure we all were one machine. The whole day ran smoothly due to Gabe and his staff's experience with the quick room flip. Our company can't wait to work with them in the future!

    Step into the 1920's with this gem

    First, if you are a fan of the 1920's, art deco era, this is the place for you. We decided to use the Oviatt as our wedding venue as it was all-encompassing (we could have our ceremony and reception there).

    Gabe, the venue manager, was kind, responsive, and accommodating, which is especially needed during the planning period of any event.

    There are small nuances within the facility that you can use to make your event special (specialty drinks, projector screen, etc.) and guests will look in awe at the cityscape around them. From the skyscrapers to the vine wall, there are plenty of photo opportunities for everyone to enjoy.

    Overall, we made a wonderful decision in choosing the Oviatt.
