About Us

Welcome to a truly classic and elegant setting for your next gala event. Whether it’s a wedding, a private party, a business celebration or corporate conference, The Society Room will provide a dramatic and unforgettable backdrop for your special occasion. In the glorious Society Ballroom, you have a room of grand marble columns soaring to an exquisitely muraled ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor.

The 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.

Needless to say, all of this grandeur is complemented by our own incomparable chef and banquet catering 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. Please contact the Society Room today for a private tour and consultation, and let the dream begin. The Society Room: where Elegance Meets Excellence.

The Society Room is conveniently located in downtown Hartford. Call us at 860.524.0796 for more information and to make reservations for your upcoming event.
