    Decor you can “Bank” on

    Society Room was the first venue that my wife and I looked at and we booked it right after our tour. Jim Bucko gave us a great tour and Melissa is a pleasure to work with. She answered all our questions. They worked great together and was very accommodating to our requests. Society Room is very organized and the results speak for themselves. Our guests were all taken care of by the staff and the food was hot. Great venue to take pictures as well.

    Society Room Venue

    We toured the Society Room as a possible venue for our wedding and loved it! Traci was very accommodating, thorough and transparent. She was able to answer all our questions and toured us around each room. She even sent follow up emails with documents I had requested. The space is stunning with options for several rooms and bars. The ornate decor adds to the aesthetics of the room. Initially we were hesitant about the split level balcony for a larger party but after learning more about their operations it was no longer a concern. Society Room was a strong option but unfortunately they were booked the date we were interested in.

  • Derek Halkett Photography Wedding Photographers

    As a wedding photographer, I always look forward to being a part of capturing beautiful moments for the couples I work with. Half the challenge when trying to create that magic moment is having the right venue to set the stage and give the proper ambiance to put the photographs over the top. Having done a couple of weddings at the Hartford Society Room; I can truly say that each and every time I am there it is special. The staff is top notch and treats the wedding party, guests and vendors with respect. I look forward to coming back soon!
