The Catacombs

The Catacombs is a remarkably quaint, romantic retreat, certain to charm all who cross its threshold. Imagine a grand staircase leading to a vintage room with vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, vintage chandeliers, a built-in stage, complemented by a private Niche Bar and The Lounge. Offering classic elegance at its best, The Sanctuary is ideal for an intimate wedding celebration, and when paired with Epiphany Hall or Chase House, makes an unforgettable impression for rehearsal dinner, bridal suite, man cave, or VIP after-party.

  • One of a Kind Space
  • Amazing Acoustics
  • State of  the Art Audio /  Visual Equipment
  • Catering Kitchen Available

Epiphany Hall embraces whimsical elements in its interior design while preserving the historic qualities. Its Queen Anne detailing, including arched ceilings and Tiffany stained glass windows, nod to the fact that the building was previously a church. The open floor plan allows the hall to be used for almost any seating configuration, including theater, banquet, and more. The room can accommodate 460 guests for a seated dining experience. It can also be booked with the adjacent Guild Hall for additional space.
