While the food here holds its own, it’s really the celebrity-rich past of the original Cipriani, Harry’s Bar in Venice, that you’re buying into—regulars included Peggy Guggenheim, Ernest Hemingway, the Aga Khan.
With Ionic columns on the outside and Corinthian ones within, this Greek Revival building is ideal for those looking to hold a ceremony and reception in a large space (it’s 13,500 square feet). The Grand Ballroom has marble walls and a huge dome. Cipriani takes care of all catering, and couples should reserve well in advance. The venue accommodates 700 for a seated dinner. Prices upon request.
