History. Elegance. Romance.
On a tree-lined street in a residential neighborhood, a Long Beach landmark has been reborn. One of three Southern California women’s clubs built in 1924, the Long Beach building has been privately purchased and renovated into a splendid special event facility. With its decades-long legacy it has been officially designated a historic venue in Long Beach. The Ebell also has distinctive architectural value as a prime example of the Spanish-Revival design so favored during the 1920’s. Featuring the characteristic red-tile roof and soaring intricately sculpted portico makes a dramatic statement and beautiful backdrop for photographs.

While the original structure has been carefully restored, the Ebell's 25,858 square feet of event space have been refreshed by the experts responsible for remodeling the Hotel Bel Air. Up a flight of stairs, a hand-crafted iron gate slides open to the foyer, revealing heavy wooden doors topped with a stained-glass transom. When you cross the threshold, you find yourself in a double-story indoor courtyard, illuminated by skylights. The lovely space is flanked on two sides by arched colonnades, with decorative cornices and moldings. Opposite the entrance, water trickles down a tiled Spanish fountain. At one corner of the courtyard is a stairway trimmed with the original tile, leading to an upper-level mezzanine that overlooks two sides of the courtyard. A bride first walks out onto the mezzanine, gliding above her guests, until she makes her way down the stairway, and passes through the admiring crowd before reaching her groom.

The elegant Parlor, adjacent to the courtyard has lofty multi-paned windows to let in natrual light. Tapestries and a magnificent hearth in the room’s center contributes to a cozy ambiance. During the social hour, leave the room’s French doors wide open to reveal the sparkling fountain in the background. Perfect setting for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

The Grand Hall, located on the other side of the Courtyard has crystal chandaliers suspended from the high ceiling, along with wrought-iron wall sconces and gleaming hardwood floors contributing to the air of refinement.

"It may be grand or simple, but each celebration should, in it’s own way, be imaginative and unique."

Please see our website for rental rates and availbility.

The Ebell Club does have (5) Air Conditioning units for the venue and at times gets too cold for some guests. We always have the air on prior to guest arrival and druing all weddings and events.

Extraordinary venue with extraordinary coordinators! We received numerous compliments from our guests about the beautiful space, decorations, and service. They enjoyed the freedom to move around the venue and socialize with one another, rather than being seated at their table the whole night.

There's a lovely bridal suite upstairs for the bride and her party to get ready in. We had plenty of time to doll ourselves up as the venue was available to us at 9am the morning of the wedding. After the ceremony (we had it off-site), my husband and I were able to enjoy some champagne and collect ourselves before the grand entrance downstairs.

The grand entrance was one of the most memorable parts of that night. Richelle Davidson, the coordinator, guided us on what to do each step of the way, so there was no need for us to worry at all. Our guests lined up on either side of the courtyard and cheered us on as we made our way through the grand wooden doors. It was a heartfelt moment!

We worked with Richelle with all the prep, set-up, and day-of management. She happily listened to our requests and made them possible. She and the day-of coordinator, Jen, made sure that my I, my husband, and our families were stress free for our special day. They took care of all the decorations we brought, setting up everything in a sophisticated way, better than I could have imagined! You can tell they love what they do, and they give you 100% of the best service you could ask for.

The Ebell Club has it all; uniqueness, character, vintage style, and quality. We truly couldn't have asked for a better venue or service. It was absolutely the happiest day for us and our families!

I can't say enough good things about the Ebell Club!!! It was the first venue my then fiance and I looked at because it is right down the street from where we live. After seeing it and meeting Richelle, no other venue compared! You get so much with this venue for such a reasonable price! The layout is perfect and the style is a mix of 20s style with california spanish architecture. So beautiful!

The Ebell Club really is the reason my wedding went SO well! The whole process was so smooth from start to finish because of Richelle who was my main point of contact the whole time. The best part about her and the venue is that they make sure your wedding is exactly what you want it to be. There are not many strict rules or set ways of things should be done so you have the freedom to make it what you want. Also, every time I had a question, Richelle was super fast at responding and giving her opinion on things which was very helpful!

I was also able to drop off all of our decorations the week before the wedding so I didn't have to worry about getting it there on wedding weekend. During the wedding and reception, Richelle and Jen we amazing because they made everything stay on track and timeline run smoothly with no lulls in the night but we never felt rushed either. And they always kept my drink full which was much appreciated! And Richelle brought my husband and I appetizers after the ceremony which was awesome! I would definitely recommend getting the day of coordination because I don't know what I would have done without them!! Also they let us pick everything up the next day! Jen met us there at 11 AM the next morning and made sure we got everything we needed. So helpful to not have to rush around that night and worry about anything.

If you want a flexible and fun wedding planning experience, have your wedding at the Ebell Club!! I cannot think of one thing that went wrong and it was all because of the amazing help from Richelle and Jen!

This was the PERFECT venue for our dream wedding! The Ebell is an all-inclusive venue. We were able to host our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing all under the same roof! Because The Ebell is situated in a residential neighborhood, there is a shuttle service from a nearby parking lot. Our guests loved it! AND, it ran flawlessly. Our wedding coordinators at The Ebell proved invaluable!! Richelle and Jen took care of us throughout the entire wedding process! We highly recommend!!!

My fiancée and I decided to get married on New Year's Day. I originally wanted a destination beach wedding, but we decided to keep it closer to home so that more people could attend. Because of this and because of the date being in the middle of winter and on a holiday, I had a hard time finding a venue, so we decided to look for a place where we could pretty much entertain the whole day and keep it intimate and not have to travel or be stuck out in the cold or rain.
The first time, and every time, we viewed this place, I fell in love with the vintage look and feel, but I still had my heart set on going a little bit further from home, since we live in Long Beach. So, I traveled to a similar venue in Santa Barbara, and although the venue was beautiful and it was in the midst of Downtown and across the street from several parks and near the picturesque Courthouse, it just was not for us. The minute we walked away, I was on the phone with Richelle (Venue Coordinator) booking our venue to make sure that we did not lose our day.
I am a control freak and had many concerns and questions, and I am pretty sure that I am on Richelle's top ten list of Bridezilla's, but she was always able to answer my questions and keep me at ease.
With that, I wanted to put on a show for our friends and family and this venue made that happen. We had an evening wedding and tons of lighting and candles. If you think this place is beautiful during the day, it is spectacular at night.
This venue was everything that I wanted. The only minor drawbacks to this place is the limited parking in the area, so we had to shuttle our guests in from the parking lot. Our hotel was close enough where we were able to shuttle our guests from the hotel. The area itself is a bit rough, but the venue is definitely a diamond waiting to be found. The venue has a large and beautiful Bridal quarters, but it does not have a Groomsmen's quarter.

Big heartfelt thanks to the Ebell Club staff for all of their expertise in carrying out the vision of our Black Tie New Years Eve Wedding. The Ebell Club is a beautiful venue that has so much character and charm. We couldn't have chosen a more PERFECT setting that captures the vintage appeal of the roaring 20's that we absolutely fell in love with. Our NYE Wedding at the Ebell Club was honestly amazing, magical, romantic, stunning and an epic night for all. Bravo!

Our Event Specialist, Richelle Davidson gave us such personal & professional service during the planning of our wedding. She loves her job, and it shows in that she was extremely accommodating and always a pleasure to work with. She understood our vision and worked closely with us to achieve what turned out to be an unforgettable night for all.

Their Day of Coordinator, Jen Maclean was a tremendous help in facilitating a smooth running ceremony and kept us on track throughout our event. The staff was on point (Richelle & Jen & Randy), ensuring that all bells and whistles are going off at the appointed time. It was NYE and the expectations were high.

We went with their catering company (Jay's Catering) who provided a stellar dining experience for our guests. Food was a big deal for my husband and I. We wanted to provide an exceptional meal for our family & friends given that it was not only our wedding, but a New Years Eve celebration. Our guests were blown away by the food, and are still raving about how delicious everything was. From the Hors d'oeuvre's to the Filet Carvery & Chicken Veronique, mac n cheese: panko crusted, jack, asiago and gorgonzola, garlic mash potatoes, green beans, etc. and finally the mini dessert bar.

All incredible! xo

The Ebell Club was amazing! My husband and I wanted a different set up than what the Ebell had in the past, and they were able to work with us. It ended up being perfect and everything that we wanted. The staff (Richelle, Jen, and Randy) was great to work with. They were always there for us with answer to our questions and moving furniture around to where we wanted. The transportation worked out great, and the guests really enjoyed it.

Where do I start. This past weekend I had what a lot of my guest described as the best wedding they have ever been to. I couldn't be more happy with my choice of venue. I worked with Richelle to organize everything, and from the start she was amazing! She always responded to me in a professional , helpful, timely manner. She is very personable, she will go out of her way to help you. She made suggestions to me, to help me save money. Her goal was to make this process for me as easy as possible, and yes wedding planning is hard. But with The Ebell and Richelle, it really was a lot easier. They are very flexible, the maintenance man Randy took time out of his schedule to help us set up our decor. My centerpieces weren't working right so they lent me supplies to use. Things like this made my day so much more special, because I knew if something went wrong, they would take care of it. And the food! OMG it was soo good. Jays Catering is awesome! Everyone keeps telling me how delicious it was. They even sent us home with two plates, and a lunch box. We inhaled the food that night, and wished we had more. And for any bride who wants to make a grand entrance, this is the place to do it. My guest literally gasped at my entrance from the second floor and down the stairs. Everything was beautiful. There is so much more I could say, but just know that you will not be dissapointed with this is choice of venue!
