Located on the heart of Downtown Miami , the soaring marble of the historic Alfred I. du Pont Building is one of the city’s most famous national historic landmarks and provides distinctive venues for special celebrations from wedding ceremonies and receptions to social galas. An integral part of Miami's history, the magnificent building was built like a bank vault in the 1930s, went onto to serve as the headquarters to the 7th Naval fleet in World War II and survived Great Depression to become one of the city’s most recognized and iconic structures. Beautifully restored to its former glory, both inside and out, the spectacular beauty now hosts exclusive, and history-making events in what is one of the country's most sought-after venues.
Exuding a timeless grace and charm, the beautifully preserved the Art Deco skyscraper features over 22,000 square feet of flexible event space comprised of two elegant ballrooms, each with 30-foot beamed and hand-painted wooden ceilings, Tennessee marble floors, and a built-in private bar set behind an original hand-wrought bank teller window dating back to the 1930s. The North Ballroom can accommodate up to 150 guests for seated dinners and features a unique stage for bands, DJs or speeches, while the South Ballroom can host up to 550 people for seated dinners or gala balls.
