I am SO happy we picked The Piedmont Room as our wedding venue. Aside from the amazing location, the food was amazing, the ballroom was spacious, and the staff was incredibly courteous and helpful. Lauren Blaska was our point of contact and she was amazing throughout the entire... Read More planning process. She was very organized and helped us create a timeline which was extremely effective in making sure our wedding day went smoothly (which it totally did)! There were also so many small things that she did for us on our wedding that really helped make it even more special for us. We had a bottle of champagne waiting in the girls dressing room. Lauren made sure me and my husband had some appetizers sent to the bridal room during the cocktail hour while we were preparing for the reception. I also had a minor freak out when my sister, mother, and sister-in-law were struggling with bustling my dress, but then Lauren came to the rescue and handled it expertly. She made a plate for me and my husband during our reception which was incredibly thoughtful because we honestly didn't think we'd be able to sit down and actually enjoy our food since we were mingling with our guests. Thankfully, we did get to eat and the food was amazing! She also made us a to-go plate of leftovers which we enjoyed the next day. Seriously, Lauren went above and beyond for us on our wedding day. Aside from the fact that Park Tavern is such a great location to get married in anyway, working with Lauren made the experience even greater.


We LOVED the Garden tent!

We had a wonderful experience working with Bonnie and the rest of the team at Park Tavern as we recently held our wedding and reception in the Piedmont Room. An advantage of this venue, in addition to the amazing views of Midtown, the wonderful space that is the Piedmont Room... Read More and free parking for guests on the day of the wedding, is that when you select this venue, you are also selecting Park Tavern for your catering as they provide all of that in-house. We really appreciated this, as pragmatically this was one less decision to make, while Park Tavern’s catering was outstanding. We did two different tastings to ensure we had exactly the food we wanted. In addition, Bonnie arranged a special menu for us, the bride and groom. After our wedding ceremony the Park Tavern team did a quick room flip in less than an hour while our guests enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvre and drinks in the lobby and bar area. The reception space provided plenty of room for food stations, our cake area, seating for our guests in round tables for 8 to 10 and a dance floor for the band and our guests to dance. We held our event at 6:00 p.m., which allowed us to access to the space at 4:00 p.m. Park Tavern allowed us to have the space until 12:30 a.m. We could have had it even later however you have to pay for security after 12:30 a.m. We didn’t quite make it to 12:30 a.m. however it was great to have as much time as we wanted/needed in such a wonderful space in the heart of Atlanta. We are so glad we selected the Piedmont Room at Park Tavern for our wedding!

Think Twice

I recently held my wedding ceremony and reception at Park Tavern in the Piedmont Garden Tent. The setting was beautiful. I was happy with the overall transformation from a Tavern/Bar to an elegant reception tent. The Banquet servers were kind, courteous and attentive to all... Read More our guests needs. Hats off to Chef Ramiro for his professionalism and delicious menu selections. He was very accommodating and exhibits top notch customer service for his bridal clients. Others associated with Bridal events should take note of his level of customer service. I understand Park Tavern hosts thousands of weddings a year but each client deserves a level of respect, attention to detail and overall care surrounding their wedding. So I am going to write a truthful and honest review of my entire experience not just my wedding day. There are 3 areas of concern every bride needs to be aware of before committing to this venue. 1) Lack of information and involvement by the Director of Sales 2) The day chosen for your wedding and 3) Proximity to other events. From the beginning your main point of contact for the venue is the Director of Sales. We worked with Lauren. She was always prompt with her email responses and would work hard to make things right. However, acting as the sole representative for the venue this person will not be at your tasting, not be at your rehearsal and only be present through dinner service at your wedding. This means unless you plan on spending additional money on wedding planners you will be planning your own rehearsal and acting as your own event coordinator. I understand the contract states we need to have someone coordinate our rehearsal but a representative from the venue should be present at all wedding events to answer any questions and display the quality of service Park Tavern advertises. Not all brides can afford the extra expense associated with hiring a planner. The tasting was very informal and held by the Banquet Director who was not familiar with any of my wedding details. Lauren exhibited a lack of flexibility with her schedule when planning meeting times. Our rehearsal time as suggested by Lauren was scheduled at the same time 30,000 people would be attending an Aids Walk in Piedmont Park. Streets would be closed and parking at a minimum. None of the above was mentioned by Lauren when she suggested the time. I had to research this and work with my planners to request a new time so my rehearsal could take place. Now this is not the level of service I would expect from a leading venue in the wedding business. My biggest regret and saddest memory involves my wedding ceremony. We chose to get married on a Friday evening for budgetary reasons and I knew that Park Tavern's proximity to Grady H.S. was a concern. But our ceremony was no match against the football game and THREE H.S. marching bands celebrating Homecoming. Our parents and guests did not hear our vows. A string trio was drowned out by drums and horns. It was impossible to compete with that level of noise. I blame Park Tavern for their failure to communicate details like this so maybe we could have better prepared ourselves. The contract says they are not responsible for interruptions caused by the proximity to other venues. I argue this far exceeded an interruption. Park Tavern does have a responsibility to its clients and when they communicated nothing it was insensitive and borderline negligent.

I worked with Lauren and everything was amazing and beautiful at the Piedmont Room except for the food. We ordered the Roasted Stuffed Chicken Breast, stuffed with spinach, wild rice and sun dried tomatoes. It also came with whipped Yukon potatoes and asparagus. Now I am not a... Read More big fan of wild rice so I asked that it be switched to yellow rice. The day of the wedding it seemed like due to me switching the rice they took it upon themselves to change the whole menu. The chicken had some sauce on top that made it very bland (which was originally not on the chicken in the beginning when we had our tasting) also the whipped potatoes were no longer whipped. We now had scalloped potatoes that had mushrooms on it (and anybody that knows me knows that I hate mushrooms so I would have never ordered it for my food). I understand that they may have wanted to change it to match the yellow rice however, I would have wished that they would have left it alone because on my wedding day, I didn't even eat the food. However, I did stuff my face with appetizers. Once again it is a beautiful venue, I would just advise to make sure that there aren't any unexpected changes that you didn't ask for.

As with any venue, things weren't without little hiccups but Lauren made sure to do whatever it took to fix any little issue that occurred. Be sure to check for events going on in Piedmont Park so you can plan accordingly - but it doesn't matter because the venue is the perfect setting for a wedding - atmosphere, food and great service are to me what the perfect party is about!

When Chris and I were looking for places to get married, everywhere we went was beautiful but out of our price range. We set up an appointment with Ryan Anthony at Park Tavern to tour the Piedmont Room and Garden Tent. We fell in love with the Garden Tent. It was beautiful and... Read More overlook a gorgeous little meadow and the city skyline. Ryan was very present throughout the process and responded back to the many emails I tortured her with. We had a wedding of about 185 people and they were able to accommodate everyone within the tent. It did get a little toasty with so many people, but it was also June. They had fans and an air conditioner within the tent. When I arrived after our ceremony at the church, I was amazed at how great of a job they did with the venue. It was absolutely beautiful. The draping, chandeliers, lanterns, and linens (which are all included with the venue) added an elegant touch to the decorations that I provided. We took most of our wedding party pictures in the garden (or meadow) before guests arrived for the cocktail hour. It offers a beautiful background for wedding parties whether you post up in front of the beautiful trees or the ivy covered wall. The space was perfect with food stations at each corner of the tent and bars at each of the tent. The service was fantastic. The staff and bartenders were all very nice and helped with everything that we needed. The food was great! Chris loved the Mashed Potini Station and we were able to eat a little as soon as we arrived. All in all, this venue is great! It's a great price, has most things that you would need to rent elsewhere included, it's a beautiful place to hold a wedding despite it being a Tavern and the staff is phenomenal. Ryan and Park Tavern truly made this the most unforgettable night of my life! THANK YOU!

I always wanted to get married on the park, after a lot of research Park Tavern Garden Tent and Meadow became the best option for us. The cost for the location is very reasonable, and the rental includes a lot which I really liked (table, linens, etc), less things to worry... Read More about! I won't lie, I was a little nervous that it wouldn't come together as perfectly as it did. Every time I visited there was stuff around and things that just didn't look great (like large exposed vents, or tables and equipment in meadow, etc). And because it's a normal restaurant/bar that is open regular hours and because they host large party events, I just didn't know if it would be as clean and put together as I knew I wanted. Also, the weekend before our wedding, they had a large event and the meadow grass was completely gone, so I was very worried. But I must say, I was BLOWN AWAY the day of. Everything was clean and immaculate, they table linens and chairs were beautiful, they covered up any "eye sore" (like large vents, etc), the willow tree is so beautiful to get married in front of, the staff was amazing and the food was wonderful! They even got new sod for our wedding day, so there was plenty of beautiful grass, like there was supposed to be, they definitely did the right thing and we really appreciated it. We loved being in the middle of everything going on in and around the park, there were people everywhere (well around us in the park, etc, not like in the venue with us), but we loved that. It was so fun! I worked with Ryan throughout the process and she was great, very knowledgeable. She definitely made me feel like she's "been there done that" and she was very confident it would all go very smoothly, and it did. All in all, it was a BEAUTIFUL day and wedding. Everyone raved about it, the food, how beautiful the venue was, etc. I wouldn't have changed anything at all. I cannot wait to get my pics!!

I absolutely loved my experience planning and having my wedding at Park Tavern. I worked with the wedding coordinator Ryan. She was prompt in answering all my questions and did a lot of work the day of the wedding to make sure everything went off smoothly. I had my wedding in... Read More December so Park Tavern was decorated beautifully already and the finishing touches from my decor made it absolutely beautiful. Also, the big beautiful windows overlooking the park and Atlanta skyline were amazing, especially for an evening wedding. My cons: The bridal suite is pretty small and not the prettiest. It's not terrible but I had a lot of pre-pics taken in there before the wedding since that's where the bride hides out and the bridal suite messes up the background of the pics. I put a tab on the bar and guests had to go to the bar to get their drink. I didn't know that this included non-alcoholic drinks as well. So only water was at the table and must guests including myself weren't aware that they had to go to the bar to get anything else including tea.
