What we love about the Fillmore…
1) It’s all about music
2) The decor is red hot rock and roll
3) Their team of event professionals is top notch
Look & Feel: Thrilling
Location: Fishtown – Philadelphia, PA
LGBT Friendly: Yes
Outside Ceremony: Yes! You can have an outdoor ceremony in their Courtyard, aka the LIVE Lounge, where you first enter and see the LIVE statue. However, it can only accommodate about 80 guests.
Staff & Service: First class
Parking: The Fillmore offers free self-parking in their lots. Valet is also available at an additional cost.
Hotels Close By: Yes. The Hilton is a very short drive from the Fillmore. The hotel offers a preferred rate to Fillmore guests.
Special note for corporate meeting planners: What a better way to show your appreciation to your clients and/or employees than by treating them to a night out at an iconic music venue with history ranging from The Doors to the Grateful Dead and Santana. With over 25,000 square feet and a variety of different event spaces, this is a perfect spot for a corporate gala, product launch, or convention.
Michelle Lee’s summary:
Since The Fillmore Philadelphia is a music venue, I’m sure you may wonder if my review is a little biased. It is! If you’re a music lover like myself, you just can’t help to worship this venue! After all, ultimate artists (case in point – Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin) helped grow the Fillmore (originating in San Francisco) into the music superstar it is today.
If you’re looking for a venue who appreciates music, can accommodate 25-3,000 people, and has the WOW factor, The Fillmore Philadelphia is it!
