History

The Antiguo Casino de Ponce (English: Old Ponce Casino), the Casino de Ponce, is a historic structure, built in 1922 and located in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Originally built as a social club for Ponce's elite, it is currently used as the premier reception center of "The Noble City of Puerto Rico" The building, designed by Agustin Camilo Gonzalez in the Second Empire and Neo-Rococo styles, has a French facade and tones. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on October 28, 1987. It is located at the corner of Marina and Luna streets. The building has been called "an icon of Ponce's architecture, history, and identity." It is owned and administered by the Ponce Municipal Government.

The Old Casino de Ponce stands as a reminder of the wealthy aristocracy of southern Puerto Rico in the late 19th and early 20th century.

From the architectural standpoint, the Old Casino is significant because in its structure the architect managed to incorporate the 19th century (Second Empire, neo-Rococo and other architectural styles in concrete construction: “It represents a transitional point from the brick and stucco classical Spanish traditional construction to the modern, reinforced-concrete technology of the United States."

From a social and cultural standpoint, the Old Casino is significant in that it expresses to this day the lifestyle of the area's wealthy families during the early decades of the 20th century. It is a reminder of how they lived and how World War II changed that lifestyle forever. The lavish second floor ballroom was extensively used prior to WWII as the de-facto meeting place for the most wealthy and influential families in Ponce and Puerto Rico. The Casino is associated with the social club that made the structure come to life; a club that has ceased to exist as today's way of life has pushed aside the lifestyle of the aristocracy of yesterday.

From the second I walked into the Antiguo Casino my mouth dropped at how beautiful this historic site is. I loved the history of the building, the accessible location, the elegance and uniqueness of this place. Our ceremony site was just steps away and I loved that our guests could just walk over for cocktail hour. The options and flexibility with the menu and the service we received was absolutely one of the best parts of our wedding. My whole family felt like VIP from the initial meeting, to the tasting and throughout our reception. I loved working with Diana and Marie Joel as well as the Chef during our tasting. The food was unique, rich tasting and definitely had that Puerto Rican touch we were hoping for! I would love to relive my wedding day and do it over and over again and would not change a thing! The place is so beautiful and the decor really stood out. Without a doubt the best place to get married!

This is by far, the most beautiful venue in San Juan. When looking for a place for our wedding, we wanted something that stood out, and that didn't look like any other hotel ballroom. The second we walked into the Antiguo casino, we knew that was it.

And it doesn't just stop there. The team is just amazing. We did the tasting a couple of month before the wedding, and they accommodated my husband and I, plus both sets of parents. The amount of food we were served was insane, and all so delicious. It was really hard to pick. After each dish, the chef would come out to discuss our options.

The day of the wedding, everything was just magical. The staff and specially all the waiters, were so attentive to all the guests. This night couldn't have been more perfect. They even had a waiter just for me and the groom. He would keep the drinks and food coming and made sure we were OK and having fun. At the end of our reception, our waiter even came up to me and said "you've been jumping all night, I have some food for you back at your table if you're hungry". We really felt like VIP people on our wedding. The guests were also pleased with the service.

Gianni and Diana were great... I could not have asked for a better place. I would highly recommend the casino to anyone getting married in Puerto rico. The place is just magical.

Beautiful venue. Professional staff. Dream about a fairytale wedding? This is the place to host your wedding. Barely needs any decoration because it's so beautiful. And the chef is AMAZING! He will take up any challenge. We did a course menu with wine pairings. It was all delicious, did not taste like mass production caterer but like a fine restaurant! We are so happy to have the memories of our wedding from this place. Thank you Melissa, Beatriz, Diana, the chef, and all the staff. We are so grateful for everything and our guests were without words after this wedding. They all said that we had redefined the standards of weddings, that is thanks to you!!
