The Backstage Event Center is the perfect place for your event, no matter if it’s an intimate gathering or a huge party. The Center has successfully hosted a small welcome event for city leaders and our annual holiday party for hundreds of guests, with the same warmth, attention to detail, and more

Though the space is beautiful, it is the staff that truly sets the Backstage Event Center apart. From helping sort of out logistics to providing delicious food and friendly service, the team at the Center makes you feel like your event is the most important one they’ve ever hosted.

The Backstage Event Center is the perfect location for events – both social and corporate. The space is open and versatile, and includes access to the outside which is great on a warm summer evening. But, what really makes this a great place for events is the more

They’re easy to work with, accommodating, patient and willing to help you think outside the box in terms of setup, menu and use of the space in order to create an impressive event. I do programs and events all over the city and by far, the Backstage Event Center is my favorite place to go.

My organization has hosted multiple events at the Backstage Event Center. We are very pleased each time we host an event at Backstage. The venue is centrally located, in the heart of it all. The staff is professional, friendly, and timely on responses and banquet event more

The space is flexible to suit to your event needs and offers a wonderful balcony overlooking the Aronoff Center. I highly recommend the Backstage Event Center for your next event!

Our Holiday event at Backstage was perfect! The food and service were excellent, the location was beautiful as well as easy to get in/out of and Kelly made the entire process very smooth. We have already booked our next Holiday event with Backstage.

We have had our annual corporate Christmas party at The Backstage Event Center for the past 3 years and are currently booked for this year being our 4th. We are very happy with the food quality, beautifully decorated rooms for the holidays and more

The location is in a very nice entertainment district and very convenient for out of town guests with a variety of nice hotels within walking distance. Kelly Schneider has been our Event Manager and such a pleasure to work with along with all the other staff members.

She is very accommodating to all our needs so much so that if she sees me look around the room and suddenly she appears by my side asking how she can help. I was previously a restaurant Manager of a fine dining French restaurant in S. FL. so I’m aware of all the many details in planning for such an event. Every request has been met beyond expectations.

All of your efforts in the details do not go unnoticed Kelly, from the dining selections, room presentation, sound system, music, table seating and set up to all our special requests…fabulous.

We are looking forward to many more memorable events in the future.

Kind regards.
