Venue Report: Historic Elegance at The Ebell of Los Angeles
The Ebell of Los Angeles has made a name for itself as one of the most exquisite wedding venues the city has to offer. Whether you dream of a traditional white wedding or an unconventional celebration, the incomparable history, glamour, and elegance of this breathtaking venue will undoubtedly bring your wedding dreams to life.
Founded in 1894, The Wilshire Ebell Women’s Club continued to thrive and in 1927 the stunning 75,000sq foot Italian Renaissance building was built to accommodate the over 3,000 members at the time. The building is still home to the women’s club and open to booking special events such as weddings and the like.
Every detail of this enchanting venue, from arched doorways and flowering shrubs and trees to an intricately crafted wrought-iron main entrance provide an endless variety of photographic settings. In addition to the natural architectural beauty, the dedicated Special Events team will aide you in customizing your day with dramatic lighting, luxury linens, and their vintage furniture collection to ensure that every inch of the space is a remarkable reflection of your personality and your love.
Conveniently located in the heart of Los Angeles in the beautiful Hancock Park neighborhood, The Ebell of Los Angeles is exclusive to one event per day which provides sole use of the grounds to one couple on their special day. Two green rooms on the second floor offer space to get ready and/or relax in before and after your vows are exchanged. One of two onsite parking lots is included and only a short walk to the marked guest entrance. Clubhouse privacy is guaranteed and security guards stand in place at entrances to ensure it.
The beautifully detailed Dining Room ballroom, intimate Art Salon, luxurious Lounge ballroom, and awe-inspiring Garden provide a variety of sophisticated settings to celebrate with your family and friends. Depending upon the size and style of your wedding, the Special Events Team will recommend the best spaces for each element of your most memorable day.
The Lounge boasts tall, gilded ceilings, original hardwood floors and a majestic staircase that is perfect for the entrance of a lifetime into your ceremony or reception. With floor to ceiling windows, French doors that lead to an outdoor patio, and a balcony that overlooks the room, this space is an epic setting for any part of your wedding day.
One of the first two art galleries in Los Angeles, The Art Salon is a superb space for cocktails. Surrounded by carefully curated art collections, your guests will enjoy food and beverage service in a comfortable setting custom arranged by you. This space is situated between the Lounge and the Garden with French doors that open directly onto the patio.
With its own entrance from Lucerne Blvd, complete with patios covered and uncovered and a variety of flowers that bloom year round, The Garden is a gorgeous setting for ceremonies and/or cocktails. A lush green lawn provides an excellent foundation for seated guests and cocktail furniture while the large theater wall acts as a screen for projections that can range from a custom monogram to the moon & stars or even a classic silent movie!
The Dining Room, the largest room in the clubhouse, is equipped with a built-in stage used for live music, photo booths and cake displays. Detailed with ornate carved arches and hardwood floors, this space is ideal for any reception. With six sets of French doors that open onto the garden terrace, access to the outdoors is just a few steps away.
With a focus on Seasonal California cuisine, in-house Executive Chef, Ron Armendariz takes great care in curating menus with sustainable, fresh and local ingredients no matter how large or intimate the event may be. The Ebell Special Events team works very closely with Chef Armendariz to ensure that every event offers an amazing culinary experience that you and your guests will not soon forget. One popular way to compliment the amazing food is with a specially crafted cocktail prepared by an in-house team of mixologists. A carefully curated list of Ebell house favorites include a wide range of drinks from The Old Fashioned to The Moscow Mule.
