The lobby and Crystal Ballroom in the historic Rice Hotel (now utilized as loft space) have been lavishly restored to their original 1913 design. The ballroom, with its 30-foot ceiling, restored mural, crystal chandeliers and outdoor terrace with views of downtown, has a colorful history of wedding parties, society balls and grand receptions. Reservations are recommended at least six months in advance for special events, but couples have planned as much as two years out from their wedding day.

Dinner and beverages are served from a ballroom-approved list of caterers. Tables, linens and silverware are provided.

The ballroom can serve 400-600 for seated dinner and dancing.
