About World Cafe Live Philadelphia

You bring the guests, we do the rest.

World Cafe Live is a unique special events facility housed in an historic factory building in Philadelphia’s University City. Offering two different event spaces, World Cafe Live can accommodate weddings ranging from 25-300 people. The Upstairs Live can accommodate 100 seated, and features a small stage. Our larger space, Downstairs Live, is a dazzling 3 tiered music hall that can accommodate 250 for a seated dinner with dance floor. This space is complete with a 600 square foot stage, a state-of-the-art sound system, theatrical lighting, and video system with built in drop down screen. World Cafe Live offers full service in-house catering, and our team is happy to create custom menus for your events.

If you're undecided about whether or not to book at WCL, email Sarah and she can give you an idea of the menus they have and the pricing options. WCL has two areas for events, upstairs for smaller events and downstairs for larger events. I was amazed at how Sarah was able to customize our wedding to be exactly what we wanted and at the price we wanted too! If you're looking for a unique venue, this is the place to go! They have an extensive catering menu, from BBQ to plated dinners so you can be sure you'll find something you like. With the WCL rental, you also get the production crew to do lighting and sound, which was a great perk for us! On the day of the wedding, the staff took great care of us and our guests. I got a lot of compliments about the food and venue so if you're on the fence about this venue, email Sarah or go and check it out yourself, it is definitely worth it!!
