Celebrate in our new Ballroom

We have so many fond memories of May in Boston—usually this is when event season really kicks off. We miss being a part of your weddings, baby showers and all other celebrations and we're thrilled to be one step closer to hosting your occasions once again. This month we continue our video series by taking you behind the scenes for a first look at our nearly complete Lincoln Ballroom.

If you remember, a few months ago we shared a sneak peek of the ballrooms skylight installation. Now, we're excited to reveal everything else we love about this new event space. 

The Lincoln Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 guests and has taken over the former Café Fleuri space. The natural light flowing in from the skylight, the luxe neutral tones and the metallic touches create an ethereal ambiance. The space features gold leaf touches in the coffered ceiling and silver leaf accents underneath the skylight. Antique mirrors will also be installed on three of the walls to bring in a bit of contemporary glamour—while maintaining the property’s heritage. 

The ballroom entrance, which leads out to our Parkview foyer and nearby Wyeth room, is a beautiful millwork door.  This custom door is made with a walnut veneer in a starburst design; this striking effect creates a subtle focus point on this side of the room.

Both the skylight and the interior windows have motorized blackout shades to control the amount of exterior light entering the room when required. We have also installed a fully integrated AV system, including two projectors and a full speaker system throughout the room. When not in use, the projectors are concealed in the ceiling with more custom millwork—and the entire AV system can be operated remotely for a seamless guest experience. The best part - the room transforms at night thanks to our chandeliers and state-of-the-art lighting system.

Our beautiful Lincoln Ballroom is nearly ready to welcome guests and we are busy with all the finishing touches to make it the perfect place for all of life’s celebrations.
