The Arts Ballroom is the epitome of elegance and grace, offering a stunning setting for your wedding in the heart of Philadelphia. It’s located in the Avenue of the Arts District, and in close proximity to numerous renowned spots in the city, including Broad Street; Love and Dilworth Parks; and Washington Square, all of which make excellent backdrops for photographs. The building was constructed as a hotel in 1923, and retains the charm and taste of the French-inspired architecture and decor. The venue’s wedding packages include services such as a custom wedding cake; open bar; and catering and staff to help make planning easy and seamless. A mezzanine space overlooks the ballroom and is the perfect place to get ready with your bridesmaids. The grand granite staircase adds a touch of timeless romance as you descend to walk down the aisle — just like a fairytale.
