Welcome to a truly classic and elegant setting for your wedding. The Society Room will provide a dramatic and unforgettable backdrop for your special occasion. In the glorious Society Ballroom, you’ll find a room of grand marble columns soaring to an exquisitely muraled ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor.
A 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, each with their own seating and full-service bar.
All of this grandeur is complemented by our own incomparable chefs and banquet staff, ready to custom-tailor a food and beverage presentation which will fulfill the promise of a truly magical event for you and your guests. Let the dream begin. The Society Room: Where Elegance Meets Excellence.

What Connecticut wedding professionals have to say about The Society Room of Hartford:
I love this venue because it is fabulous no matter the weather. The landscape isn’t reliant on foliage or water. The cityscape backdrop is a dramatic element on its own. The interior of the space is so grand you forget you’re in Hartford, and the vault is very cool! Kim Terril – Kims Cottage Confections
Gilded grandeur in the heart of Hartford. This place screams Stately and Elegant! Gabriele DeFrances – Gabriele’s Floral Designs
The fact that it used to be a bank always intrigued me. I love the open space, the murals upstairs, and the street access out front. The wedding venue offers a ton of great spots to take pictures. It is one of the few places where it can be just as elegant for a day wedding or night because of the decor. Misty Enright – Misty Enright Photography
