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."

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.

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.

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!

Everything in this place had so much character. From the floors, to the pillars, the fireplace. Absolutely everything was amazing. We loved how we could have our reception and ceremony all in one place. The night of everything was seemless and just flowed from one thing to the next.

I had the pleasure of getting ready in the bridal suite upstairs. I couldnt have asked for a more perfect place to get ready. There was plenty of space for me and my wedding party to spread out. We were even practing our dance moves pre wedding.

Me and my husband decided to add the candle package and the on site wedding coordinator to our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend doing both to everyone booking their wedding here. The candles made everything look magical. It highlighted the venue amazingly and I felt like it couldnt have looked more beautiful.

I worked with Richelle throughout my entire engagement. I cant thank her enough for everything that she did. She helped me withthings that didnt even have to do with The EBell Club. She was always there with a helping hand if I needed one. She answered every question I threw at her and was really fast on responding to my emails. During my wedding day she took care of me and all of my wedding party. She made sure I ate and got drinks when I needed them. Without her I dont know if my wedding would have went as smoothly as it did. She was absolutley amazing. I want to plan another wedding just so I can work with her.

There are only two tiny drawbacks of this place. The first is that it doesnt have an ATM and it is a cash only bar. Not one guest complained about the bar because they were too busy having fun and raving about how beautiful the place was. It was more of an inconvience than an issue. The second is that you are required to use their catering. This is only an issue if you had your heart set on another place. They use Jay's Catering and it was delicious. All of my guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Ebell Club in May 31, 2014. We were very pleased with how the entire day turned out and have had many compliments from our guests about the wedding, the venue and the food. We wanted a venue where we could have both the ceremony and the reception, we wanted everything indoors, and we wanted a space that had a deco feel with the building adding to the decor of the wedding.

The Ebell Club is a beautiful building. We liked that there were three different spaces that we were able to use throughout the event and that we were the only event happening in the building. Everything flowed from the ceremony space, to the cocktail hour, to dinner and then to dancing. Richelle, Jen, the staff of The Ebell and the staff of Jay's catering did an excellent job of taking care of us and our guests throughout the night.

Richelle and Jen at the Ebell Club are delightful to work with! Any bride would be lucky to have their wedding at this venue. They offer personalized service, go over and beyond what was contracted and paid for. It seemed like one of their family members was getting married! I look forward to working with them again soon!
