Best Venue Ever... - An Eventective User

The Arts Ballroom is absolutely the best place to have an event. The space is magnificent, from the open floor plan and beautiful marble staircase to the outstanding food. They were incredibly helpful and patient with me, as we planned for the event - Kayleigh made sure that every detail was attended to. She coordinated with the other vendiors I hired for the party, and made sure everything was exactly how I had imagined. The food was delicious, The venue Is absolutely gorgeous, and the owner John, and his team are top notch - Kayleigh, one of the event planners, and John were at the venue the night of my event to ensure all of our needs were met. People are still talking about how good the food was, and what a great time they had. I am so thankful it was recommended as I was searching for venues online...Thank you Arts Ballroom for making my daughter’s Sweet 16 party AMAZING! Valerie Howell
