About Rhodes Hall

Known as Atlanta's Castle on Peachtree Street, Historic Rhodes Hall is a unique venue for weddings (indoor and outdoor), receptions, showers and rehearsal dinners. The Romanesque-revival style mansion features stained glass windows and an elaborately carved mahogany winding staircase. Renter must provide licensed caterer from approved catering list or may use a licensed and insured “outside” caterer for an additional fee. May bring in own alcohol. Ample amount of free parking.

Through a partnership between the State of Georgia and The Georgia Trust, Rhodes Hall is being restored to its historic grandeur as one of the last of the great Peachtree Street mansions. The Georgia Trust and those who use it for special events both have responsibility for the proper stewardship of this historic property and we ask for your cooperation in abiding by the rules and regulations regarding the use of Rhodes Hall.

Room Logistics: The first floor of Rhodes Hall (approx. 3000 square feet) can accommodate 175 people for a buffet/cocktail-style standing reception, using the furniture that is in place. Setup of additional tables, chairs, musical equipment and other items provided by the renter will reduce the number of guests possible in the interior space. A maximum of 100 people can be seated throughout the first floor for a seated dinner, with the largest room, our Reception Hall, holding up to 50 people for dinner. Sixty people may be comfortably seated for a wedding ceremony in one room. Up to 80 may be accommodated by having guests stand at the rear of the room or by seating them in an adjoining room. Larger ceremonies (over 80 people) are usually held on the front lawn. Most of the events in the spring, summer and fall utilize both the indoor and outdoor space of the property if seating is required for more than 100 people. Tents are permitted on the front lawn.

The Parlor can seat up to 30 people. The marble top table in this Louis VX style room is popular for dessert displays and especially wedding cakes! A beverage bar may not be set up in the Parlor owing to the silk walls in this room.

Typically, the Dining Room table is used for buffet set-up. The table extends to 11’ feet when all 9 leaves are inserted. However if the renter would like to use the dining room for more seating, they could seat 12 people at this table when extended or alternatively, the table could be used without leaves as a 60” round table. With the latter scenario, two more 60" round tables could be placed in the dining room making this room accommodate up to thirty people.

The Library is commonly used for beverage set up. For seating purposes, this room could fit up to 30 people.

The Den could seat up to 10 people. Sometimes the Den is used for a second beverage bar, an additional food station, or gift table.

The Front Porch could accommodate another beverage station as well as entertainment and dancing. Alternatively the porch could seat up to 50 people.

Laraine at Rhodes Hall was the best to work with. The site looked fantastic on the day of my wedding. She was so helpful to us prior to and on the day of our wedding. She was helpful in planning the floor space and coming up with a 'plan b' in case of inclement weather. If you have never seen the inside of Rhodes Hall, it is a must see!

The perfect venue for anybody wanting an intimate and classy setting for a wedding in the heart of Atlanta! Chrystal & her team were very helpful and accommodating, and the natural beauty of the "castle on Peachtree" meant only minimal decorating was necessary. Very flexible and affordable, especially compared to similar venues in Atlanta. Don't forget to ask to climb the tower for a sunset picture with the Midtown skyline in the background.

Lei's Inside ScoopRhodes Hall is one of the last remaining historic mansions on Peachtree and it is truly gorgeous! The interior of the "castle" includes an elaborately carved mahogany winding staircase - perfect for the bride's grand entrance... I've seen it in action! I love that they allow you to bring in your own alcohol because that can greatly reduce the cost of your reception - check on this though because sometimes these rules change. I believe they also allow tents on the front lawn for larger groups. This is definitely one of my favorite venues in Atlanta.  ~ Lei
