If you want a wedding ceremony that is the MOST grand, and located centrally in downtown Cincinnati, then look no further! If you want to host a fundraiser or corporate event that is super accommodating and brings a rich history as a conversation piece, then look no further!
To be truthful, we could forever gush about what a neat space Memorial Hall is, and you are certain to have an impressive event here. Thick with nostalgia and a vintage feel, it's impossible to not be captivated by this mature and stately building! The rooms here are very ornate and interesting, and the architectural features are just visually stunning. Gush, gush, gush! The Green and Gold Rooms are of equal size and open off of a central hallway allowing your guests to easily move between them. They are ideal for meetings and for modestly sized receptions, following wedding ceremonies or events in the auditorium. There are a limited number of chairs and tables available (both round and rectangular) to be used, this is always a perk when venues have tables included!
The auditorium (gorgeous!!!) at Memorial Hall has a seating capacity of more than 500 places including seating in the balcony; 370, auditorium 116 and boxes 50.
Can't you just imagine hosting a grand event here? We can! Contact Memorial Hall to see this historically rich space in person!

We are proud to have this hidden gem listed on VenueAgent because it just has a super cool vibe unlike any other event space in Cincinnati. There is plenty of lounge-like seating, hightop tables, and space for mingling. The built in bar is not only stocked with all the necessities, but the bar staff is seriously on top of it. You'll find that they will have your guests names and favorite drinks memorized after just their first order. It's like Cheers, only cooler.
The Pinup retro style space, paired with the vast windows that swing open to downtown 5th Street has a fresh feel to it.
