ABOUT THE VENUE SPACE

UPTOWN SOCIAL IS A WEDDING VENUE, PRIVATE EVENT VENUE, AND OFFERS LIVE ENTERTAINMENT TO THE PUBLIC! OUR VENUE WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT AS A CHURCH IN 1867. IT HAS SINCE HAD MANY USES, AND UNDERWENT A TOTAL RENOVATION INSIDE AND OUT IN 2020 MAKING IT A PREMIER VENUE FOR WEDDINGS AND EVENTS IN NORTHWEST INDIANA. 

HISTORIC BALLROOM

OUR HISTORIC BALLROOM FEATURES A 40 FOOT CEILING WITH A WRAPAROUND BALCONY OVERLOOKING THE MAIN FLOOR. COLUMNS BORDER THE MAIN FLOOR SOARING TO THE ROUNDED CEILING. THE BACK OF THE BALLROOM HAS THE THREE ORIGINAL ENTRYWAYS AND 15 FOOT DOORS. ALL NEW SOUND AND LIGHTING WERE INSTALLED IN 2020 FOR COUPLES TO PERSONALIZE THEIR EXPERIENCE, AND FOR LIVE ENTERTAINMENT TO RIVAL LARGER CONCERT VENUES!

BALLROOM HALLWAY

THE HALLWAY AND STAIRS BEFORE THE BALLROOM ARE A FAVORITE FOR PHOTOS. WE RESORED THE ORIGINAL MOSAIC FLOOR FROM THE CHURCH TO PRESERVE THE ANTIQUE CHARM. CURVING STAIRCASES FLANK BOTH ENDS OF THE HALLWAY UP TO THE BALCONY. CRYSTAL CHANDELIERS CROWN EACH ARCHED DOORWAY INTO THE BALLROOM.

MAIN HALLWAY

THE WELCOMING AREA AND HALLWAY HAVE BEEN RESTORED TO THEIR ORIGINAL BRICK AND ACCENTED WITH BLACK SCONCES TO TRANSPORT YOU BACK IN TIME. THIS AREA WAS ORIGINALLY OUTSIDE THE CHURCH BEFORE THE CHURCH AND RECTORY WERE JOINED INTO ONE BUILDING.
