LOVED the Lyceum
I cannot say enough good things about the Glendale Lyceum. I feel like it is a hidden gem. My husband and I got married here and enjoyed working closely with Cindy. I do not know how she does it, but she was SO helpful and always so sweet. She was great about letting us come to see it and meeting with us. She was very accommodating and was quick to return our emails with any questions. She seemed genuinely excited for us and wanted to help in anyway she could. The others that work with Cindy including Kevin and Robert were very helpful and accommodating as well.If you are considering the Lyceum you may want to check out their Facebook page. Cindy takes pictures at each of the events and posts them to the Lyceum FB page. This was great to help get ideas and to get an idea of how to set up the floor plan for various numbers of guests, for a reception with a ceremony there or without, etc. Also, at the Lyceum, you bring in your own caterer, and also your own alcohol, which can be a budget friendly opportunity. It’s not like a lot of other places that we checked into in that don’t pay per head no matter how old they are, and no matter whether they will be drinking or not, and you don’t have to meet a minimum. There is also plenty of parking onsite.
The Lyceum really is the PERFECT place to get married! It is absolutely stunning and Cindy and Kevin are SO HELPFUL! They were so accommodating to any of my preferences on how I wanted the room set up. They went out of their way multiple times to make sure everything was as we wanted. We were planning to have Graeter’s Ice Cream at the reception and found out the Lyceum didn’t have freezers…somehow, the day before my wedding, there was suddenly a freezer. These people are the BEST, really. If you choose to have your wedding at the Lyceum, I guarantee you will not regret it.
Perfect Ceremony & Reception
This is a hidden gem in Cincinnati. We booked the Lyceum more than a year before our 5/2/14 wedding. From the minute we saw the red-bricked building, we met the manager Cindy and saw the inside… both my husband and I fell in love. It was the second venue I looked at and refused to look anywhere after. I’m telling you, this place is beautiful… everyone thought it was beautiful and the pictures reflected the beauty of the building.
Beautiful, historic, vintage
Beautiful, historic, vintage. Was the perfect place for a winter wedding. Highly recommend! Staff and venue were top notch!
Most beautiful place in Cincinnati
The Glendale Lyceum is one of the most charming and beautiful place to have your wedding reception. The library, the gold chandelier, fire places, and the porch! All adds grace and class to anyone’s big day! It’s the perfect size for a relatively small wedding (around 130 people) to give you that family coziness feel. And Cindy is just great. She will do her absolute best to make sure your night is perfect. We love the Glendale Lyceum!!!
Amazing venue—best in Cincinnati!
I think the Glendale Lyceum is one of the best kept secrets in Cincinnati. The venue is incredible. It is absolutely gorgeous! We were going for that modern meets country club meets Victorian feel and the Lyceum definitely has that. Cindy was by far my favorite vendor to work with. She is so easygoing and will make anything happen. The little details are my favorite parts of a wedding and by having our reception at the Lyceum, I was able to do as many little details as I wanted. Bottom line: if the Glendale Lyceum is in your budget, I would make it happen. You won’t regret it.
Stunning backdrop and decor in each room
If you want excellent customer service, a stunning backdrop and decor in each room, an intimate, but also glamorous aesthetic to your wedding or reception, then look no further, this is the venue for you!! I couldn’t be happier with the endless support and execution of our wedding reception. I haven’t stopped smiling, and its really because of Kevin & Cindy’s attention to detail. I’ve lived in New York City for the past 10 years, but Ohio will always be home. Future brides do yourself a favor and check this place out:-) Kindra the Bride, April 13th 2013
