About Us

Exquisite chandeliers, European ambiance and turn-of-the-century elegance make the Ballroom at the Ben a truly perfect setting for life’s most important events. Weddings, rehearsal dinners and bridal showers deserve a premier venue, and this famous spot is it. During your event, you will experience this classic ballroom just as Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence did when they danced their way to an Academy Award in The Silver Linings Playbook.

Upon entering this unique building in Philadelphia, you and your guests can be directed to the mezzanine level, which overlooks the palatial ballroom, for a relaxing cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception. Scrumptious appetizers, full dinner menus and over-the-top dessert buffets await you and your lucky guests.

With culinary masterpieces to entice any palate, Finley Catering and the Ballroom at the Ben are simply the best. Want to see other exceptional wedding venues from Finley Catering? Visit their related listings on New Jersey Bride: Crystal Tea Room and Union Trust.
