Great Hall and Mezzanine
The elegant sophistication of the Great Hall and Mezzanine make it an ideal location for dancing, dinner, or a large cocktail reception. Guests are greeted by a luxurious marble reception area, and a ballroom adorned by three beautiful crystal chandeliers and works of art from our permanent collection. White marble staircases sweep upward to the spacious Mezzanine. An adjacent caterer's kitchen makes the space extremely practical. The Great Hall and Mezzanine can accommodate 500 guests for dinner and up to 1,000 for a reception.
