The Crystal Tea Room

Located just steps from City Hall, The Crystal Tea Room is a piece of Philadelphia history. Guests can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the glass atrium, an indoor conservatory that lets in beautiful light but none of the bad weather!

Ballroom at the Ben

The renovated Ballroom at the Ben exudes turn-of-the-century elegance. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are served on the mezzanine level. And if you recognize this venue, it’s because Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence danced the graceful finale of “The Silver Linings Playbook” in this very room!

The Union Trust

Location: 717 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
Website: https://finleycatering.com/venues/union-trust/ 

Built in 1888, The Union Trust is a taste of old Philadelphia charm, not only because it overlooks the Historic District. Sixty-five-foot illuminated engraved ceilings, accented walls, and a stunning wraparound mezzanine combine to make this one of the most popular sites for special events in the city. This venue combines the old and the new, giving an air of grandeur to your event while remaining distinctly modern as well.

The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve

Location: 3821 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073

The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve, named for local entrepreneur Charles Ellis, is Finley Catering’s newest location, having opened in the fall of 2016. Built in 1932, this Greek revival-style ballroom is an idyllic spot for dinner and dancing after an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour on the gorgeous grounds.

The Ivy at Ellis Preserve

Location: Newtown Square

The Ivy at Ellis Preserve, Finley Catering’s newest venue, features a 2nd level for cocktail hour and an outdoor covered ceremony area.
