Whether it’s a wedding, a private party, a business celebration or corporate conference, The Society Room will provide an elegant and unforgettable backdrop for your special occasion. In the glorious Society Ballroom, you have a room of grand marble columns soaring to an exquisitely muraled ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor.

The sweeping staircase flows down from the 3,000 square foot balcony, providing a dramatic focal point for grand entrances and photographic opportunities. Marble, limestone, brass and bronze accents adorn the opulent Ballroom in a setting right out of the Great Gatsby. Immediately adjacent to the Ballroom are three additional lounge or function spaces, each with their own special historic character, seating space and full-service bar.

Needless to say, all of this grandeur is complemented by our own incomparable chef and banquet catering staff, ready to tailor a food and beverage presentation which will fulfill the promise of a truly magical event for you and your guests. Please contact The Society Room today for a private tour and consultation, and let the dream begin. The Society Room: where Elegance Meets Excellence.

The Society Room is conveniently located in downtown Hartford. Call us at 860.524.0796 for more information, or let us know more about your upcoming event here.
