Getting married in the Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky area? If you answered “yes,” then get ready for a tour of The Center. I just love the lighting–this venue is definitely celebration ready!
The Center is a unique and customizable event venue in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. Located in the Mercantile Building, many may remember the location as the former Contemporary Arts Center space.This convenient location allows guests access to nearby hotels and parking.
With nearly 15,000 square feet of space, modern architectural features, and a great view of Fountain Square – there is truly nothing like it downtown! The expansive hardwood floors and neutral walls in the ballroom allow clients to arrange the space to fit their needs and create the atmosphere of their choice with the lighting and décor.
The reception area under the dome ceiling is a popular spot for a cocktail hour, but no two events at The Center are the same!
The Center is not a full service venue and does not have a preferred vendors list. This means that the space is yours for the duration of the event and you are welcome to work with the caterers, party planners, rental companies and entertainers of your choice – at no additional cost! Caterers are welcome to use the open kitchen and can easily access the main event areas.
There are also smaller side rooms around the venue that can be used for kids, photo booths, buffets, and more!
