Atlanta Event Center at Opera

Built in the 1920s, the venue has been preserved to keep the sophisticated historical architecture and design. Its unique layout can accommodate any party, from 50 to 1,000 guests, and the signature giant 23ft LED video wall is ideal for photo and video montages. The venue also includes a stage, indoor and outdoor areas, an on-site photo booth, cannon confetti blasts, DJs, dancers, and themed décor.

The Experience
Families book all of their entertainment, décor, and rental needs at one location, and customize details to suit their theme. Compliments abound for the friendly, professional staff, too.

Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

The Centre boasts a 10,000-square-foot ballroom that divides into three separate spaces, each with individually controlled lighting and sound. Other distinctive event spaces include a terrace for an outdoor setting. The guest of honor can be featured on the giant marquee overlooking I-75, on a poster outside the box office, and on TV screens just outside the ballroom.
