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

This venue was amazing! Not only is it beautiful, but Brian and his crew make the process so smooth and stress free. Brain has so much experience and it shows. He was very thorough and on top of every detail. Anything we didn't catch or missed, he was there to catch it. He was patient and flexible with our needs. On the day of the wedding he made sure everything ran smoothly. He and his crew were professional and so nice to everyone. We have no complaints. Beautiful and affordable! We highly recommend this venue

Our main contact is Brian. His group who put together the ceremony and reception were amazing!! Prior to the wedding he was always there to ask questions and would not care if you would even come by everyday to see the venue. We could not have pulled off a better wedding if it had not been for him and his team. The building is amazing and doesnt require much decoration since it is so much decorated by the building itself! We absolutely loved our venue and would love to redo our wedding over and over!!

The best decision I made for my wedding was to have it at Mirror Lake Lyceum. The building is drop dead gorgeous and the pictures really don't do it justice! Brian is AMAZING- so knowledgable, professional, calming and helpful. If you want to have your ceremony and reception at the same location, this is your place. If you want to have the most impressive and beautiful wedding venue in Tampa, or Florida rather, this is your place. From the moment we walked into the Lyceum, my fiancé and I knew it was the place. And the more Brian explained the building features, the more we fell in love. We did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception here. There's a bridal suite for getting ready. Brian has his staff there all night which includes a doorman and a parking lot monitor. Something amazing about the Lyceum is the way they flip the room. The ceremony room is flipped while guests are downstairs in the jazzy-speak easy cocktail hour and when they come back upstairs, the reception is set up and the dance floor that held all of the tables is opened up. It's amazing to see the transformation and it all went so smoothly. Brian covers every last detail that your mushy wedding brain would never think of. We used the in-house bar services through Lundy's which was a great value and the bar staff was awesome and so nice!! We also used the Lyceum chair covers and sashes which looked beautiful. Look no further, this is the perfect venue.

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!
