An Inside Look at the Cupola Ballroom & Mezzanine’s Best Features
Historic Charm Meets Modern Updates
We’d have to take you back to 1882 to find the groundwork for one of Philadelphia’s finest event venues—because that is when Phoenixville Foundry got its start with the Phoenix Iron and Steel Company. Today, having transformed and transferred ownership many times, Phoenixville Foundry retains its industrial-era vibe and is listed in the National Register. And this is largely thanks to spaces like the Cupola Ballroom still having original structures in place—notably the Cupola furnaces that speak to its name.
Situated on the banks of the French Creek, Phoenixville Foundry was always primed to be a beautiful event space. Fortunately, the building was restored by PAEDCO and Hankin Group to become a sophisticated modern event space that takes full advantage of its incredible location and history. When you tour the Cupola Ballroom and Mezzanine, you will find everything you need to effortlessly execute your event plans. Your Philadelphia catering company will appreciate access to the commercial kitchen, and your entertainers will relish in the state- of-the-art sound and lighting systems as well as the high-speed WiFi and great audiovisual equipment on-site.
A Vast Space Lets Creative Event Visions Soar
The industrial chic design and a neutral color scheme found throughout the airy Cupola Ballroom and Mezzanine allow your most creative décor ideas to flourish. In this flexible space suited to a variety of event themes, our talented team can help you extrapolate your most innovative ideas. By designing a custom menu and helping you choose a fitting style of food service and table configurations, we will further elevate the memorable experience up to 160 seated guests can enjoy.
With indoor and outdoor spaces as well as the ability to close off areas to create secluded venues, event planners have no problem nailing the perfect event flow. Hold your main event inside the ballroom and then feel free to take your pre- and post-party photo ops and activities outside to the Sculpture Garden or Phoenix Column Truss Bridge.
