The Solarium is an historic event facility located in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Decatur, Georgia, convenient to public transportation, I-285 and I-20. We can accommodate approximately 150 guests indoors for a buffet reception, and about 200 for a standing, cocktail-type reception. We also have outdoor space that may be utilized for a ceremony and reception. Rather than packages or in-house vendors, we offer our clients the opportunity to select all their own vendors, including catering, entertainment, and decor; clients may also bring in their own alcohol. Our clients or their designee are responsible for pre-event setup and decoration and for post-event equipment breakdown and facility cleanup. We offer free on-street and off-street parking, and the Solarium is fully accessible for our disabled guests. Our facility also includes a bridal suite and a prep kitchen (sink, countertop, refrigerator and microwave).
Great Venue! - An Eventective User from Atlanta, Georgia

The Solarium is a unique and beautiful venue. Located in Decatur, in Metro Atlanta, the Solarium feels worlds away. The Solarium was founded in 1979 as a community center available for rent, the building itself is much older. The facility was originally built in 1918 as a place for crippled children , this aspect shows through the natural light which comes through virtually every angle of the building. It is the perfect venue for an afternoon or early evening wedding. The bay of windows along the facade of the building creates a light and airy ambience which appropriately sets the mood for a wedding celebration! The facility itself is a not-for-profit entity, which promotes the preservation of the building and grounds. You can feel good about renting the facility, since you are also supporting a good cause. The personnel are easy to work with and very accommodating. The facility rental also includes the use of beautiful, cushioned folding chairs along with folding tables , so you don't have to worry about finding a vendor for those needs. Also, the facility does not require pre-approved vendors or caterers. I found this really helpful because I was able to choose which caterer I wanted for my celebration at no additional cost. The facility itself is very close to several restaurants and bars which my wedding guests took advantage of for the after wedding celebrations! Overall I would highly recommend this facility for anyone looking for a unique venue for their wedding in the Metro Atlanta area.
