We have brought back to life one of Saint Petersburg's finest historic properties. The Lyceum, with it's structural grandeur and period ambiance, is among the most elegant meeting and special event venues in the country. Just past the historic Carnegie Library and the original Saint Petersburg High School, our magnificent Mediterranean revival facility is located on the picturesque palm lined Mirror Lake.

You and your guests will step back in time as you enter the Lyceum. The 20's style stained glass windows set the pace of the historic décor. The rich gold, champagne, leather and silk green palette flows from room to room. The period carpet, original oak hardwood floors and inlaid terrazzo accent the hand moulded ornamental plaster. Chandeliers and original fixtures of plaster, crystal and alabaster ornament the Lyceum's Grand Hall with it's soaring 53' domed ceiling.

The Lyceum and its gracious staff provides the feeling of a time forgotten, with doormen and greeters welcoming your guests upon arrival and departure. The smallest details are attended to. Our beautifully decorated interior is the perfect backdrop for photo and video opportunities. Family and friends will cherish these forever. We strive to be flexible in meeting all of your event's special requirements.

Whether planning a social gala, private celebration, wedding ceremony and reception or a corporate function, the Lyceum staff looks forward to making your special event as grand and timeless as the Lyceum itself. Read less

After reading reviews extensively online, we scheduled a meeting with Brian (manager), walked in, and literally wrote our deposit the day we set eyes on Mirror Lake Lyceum.

Not only is The Lyceum a beauty to behold - goldenrod exterior with vintage white details/trimming/moulding, vibrant green doors, chandeliers; a Grand Hall with an elegant arch - ornate but not gaudy - but it is also very classy, rich in history, and convenient! It has its own private parking lot (with staff to direct traffic on your event day). There is also a gated elevator available for accessibility which is manned by a doorman/operator. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at The Lyceum.

We thought The Lyceum was stunning, but also felt confident in our choice because of such overwhelmingly positive reviews online - even rudimentary perusal of the reviews would reveal Brian's name repeatedly. Brian is the manager and is incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and professional. The planning process was incredibly smooth - we had very few questions since Brian always provided us with information we needed. The questions we did have were always promptly answered. He was also always flexible with meeting times. He ran our rehearsal, which with our limited experience was very helpful. Many of our friends who got married before us insisted that we hire an event manager, but we did not need one because Brian and his staff took care of all those details. His attention to "the small things" (and large things, really) added additional class and polish, and helped make our special day smooth/less stressful. We are very appreciative of all that he and his staff did for us. (:

What a fantastic venue! This was the 2nd place that we looked at and fell completely in love with it. Brian was so helpful and responsive and I felt overly confident that our wedding was going to be amazing. On the day of the wedding there were several workers helping guide our guests to where they needed to go next. We also had so many compliments about the venue itself. Our guests loved it! We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at Mirror Lake and everything flowed so smoothly. Unfortunately, it rained all day on our wedding but luckily we had such a beautiful venue so I am confident that our pictures will be beautiful. Our photographers even told us that these were some of their best pictures and were so impressed. Our wedding "theme" was vintage and the Mirror Lake Lyceum really fit the bill.

I had to have looked all over St. Petersburg for a month before I found this place. I was so set on having a beach front reception I almost missed it! A little sparkling diamond. It was still waterfront, just not beach and at such an affordable price compared to everyone else in the area. I wasn't compromising anything, Mirror Lake Lyceum is dazzling! It has such an elegance to it, I felt like I was hosting a grandeur ball, especially since it was just after Christmas! I felt very special to have uniformed doormen which was included in my package.

Brian and his team were nothing short of exceptional! He clearly has many years of experience and is very professional. Everything was made easy and he was also able to offer useful advice in other areas of my wedding planning.

Our guests were all blown away with the Lyceum and how beautiful it was, I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for their fairy tale wedding.

Thank you Brian!

Don't look ANY further for a place to get married in the downtown St. Petersburg area. I just had my wedding at the Lyceum this past weekend and would recommend it to anyone. Here is why:

Physical Venue: There is nothing like this place anywhere else in the Bay area. I looked at several other historic places for that "vintage" vibe and nothing was nearly as classy as the Lyceum. The architecture is out of this world- my pictures inside and outside are timeless. Definitely go on Pinterest to look at what it looks like in there and for photo opps- it's incredible. It's a few minutes from beautiful hotels to stay at and where all the bars/restaurants are for rehearsal dinner and after party efforts. There are so many options of how to use the (incredibly large) space in this venue- we actually had our reception downstairs in the Orpheum, which looks a little like a speakeasy and the dance floor was the stage. Our guests, some of them St. Pete natives, were losing their minds over it.

Staff: Brian and his staff at the Lyceum are incredible, experienced professionals. I booked this venue then left the country for a year for a special, professional and travel opportunity. Brian, the general manager, has this awesome laid-back attitude about him that will make you feel as though there is not a worry in the world about your wedding. Super helpful to have that attitude and energy around you during planning, since other things can be stressful. This was particularly helpful for me and my wedding party because we wrapped up planning the party the month before the wedding. Brian's laid back way transitions to total business the day of your wedding. He and his team were INTEGRAL in making sure the flow of our wedding stayed on the timeline and everything was PERFECT because of them.

Price: Amazing price for what you get. I felt like we stole this venue from them. Cheers to Brian and the rest of the staff for the best night of my life.

The Mirror Lake Lyceum is truly a gem in St. Petersburg!! My husband and I stumbled across it while we were planning our wedding and could not be happier. The venue is truly gorgeous and needs minimal added décor or flowers- the architecture and charm are more than enough by themselves. We had our cocktail hour downstairs and reception upstairs with about 125 people. Plenty of room for all guest and so many compliments with how much everyone loved the place. The staff is beyond exceptional. They were extremely responsive, easy to work with, and went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect. We could not have been happier with the Lyceum and would honestly recommend it to anyone and everyone!!

I had been dreaming of a wedding in Tampa, so stopping into this St. Pete venue seemed like a waste of time. I walked in and quickly changed my mind. My (now) husband and I completely fell in love with the Lyceum after walking in.

The venue has a beautiful 1920's charm to it. From the beautiful chandeliers to the grand piano to the gorgeous balconies, the Lyceum is truly on of a kind. The way this place functions is really interesting, too. The ceremony and reception are held in the same spot. After the ceremony, the party proceeds downstairs to the basement for cocktail hour when the staff flips the upstairs into a reception area. The space looks like two completely different rooms, but completely beautiful in their own way.

I must mention the staff. Brian and Cortney were both so easy to work with. They made sure my wedding day went like clockwork and were very attentive to all of my questions. I could not recommend the Lyceum more highly. What a spectacular venue!

IF you want a beautiful, historical vintage venue-then Mirror Lake Lyceum is the place to create the wedding of your dreams. From the first day we walked in-we knew that this would be where our wedding would be. IT was conveniently located in downtown St. Pete, all in one for wedding and reception, staff was friendly and courteous. Our wedding/reception at Mirror Lake Lyceum was the event our family and friends will be talking about for years to come.

This venue was perfect. Every detail of the building complemented our vintage wedding. The restoration work that has been done on this space is beautiful and it's a great location with a "church" feel, but it's not a church. Brian and the Lyceum staff were a joy to work with. His organization made everything run smooth from rehearsal to day of. I would recommend this venue, especially for a vintage theme wedding.
