Cescaphe Ballroom is the perfect union of flawless over-the-top food, service, professionalism and creativity with the style of old world romance. The first of our venues opened in 2003 when Joseph Volpe envisioned the transformation of the once renowned Imperial Movie Theater. Reviving its original opulence with gold gilded columns, cathedral vaulted ceilings and crystal accented chandeliers, Cescaphe Ballroom quickly became one of Philadelphia’s most popular and award winning venues. Upon arrival, guests are free to explore the adjoined cocktail spaces, floating between the graciously appointed lounge, an outdoor garden courtyard, complete with a chef-attended action grill, and the main cocktail space designed with wrought iron balconies and a baby grand player piano. A personalized ice sculpture adorns the renowned Cescaphe seafood display, with never ending hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Every guest will be awed by the grand entrance into the main ballroom, with its floor-to-ceiling bar and duel bridal suites overlooking the room high above the dancing and candlelight. Its continued popularity is still referred to as, ‘Perfection’ by its guests who have attended a wedding at this classic and one-of-a-kind venue.
