I hosted my baby shower here and everything was fantastic! The venue is beautiful. From the marble floors to the bar in the actual bank vault, my guests felt like they were at a big city event. The owners, Justin and Ashley, were very easy to work with and were very accommodating. Everything I wanted they had. Tablecloths, beautiful chairs and decorative accents made my baby shower elegant. Justin and Ashley catered the event as well. The food was excellent and plentiful. If you want the feel of a big city venue without the big city pricetag, come and see the Anthracite Center. You will not be disappointed. More...
Excellent show! Staff were very accommodating!
My family (11 people). Went to Breakfast with Belle. We had an amazing time. The kids adored Belle. She was so sweet with the kids and was teaching them dance moves. The food was delicious, the room was beautiful, the craft was so cute too. What a great thing to do in our amazing city. We can’t wait for the next one !!! Thanks Ashley and Justin for adding events like this !! More...

Wow, what a beautiful and historic building.
I had my wedding ceremony here on 3.2.19. Ashley was so helpful and easy to work with! They set up the room as I hoped and did a great job with the bar (we served beer and wine) before/ after the ceremony. Everything was great!
