  • Great for private parties, and it gives a glimpse into wealthy life from a past century. Watch one's step as there are multiple floor level changes marked with yellow paint. Great for an outside event in the nice Florida weather. Fairly private, so your party goes with the planned guests. Definitely a nicer destination, five stars.
  • Absolutely love this venue for weddings. This was the 2nd time we have attended a wedding here and both were fantastic. Very unique and such a special atmosphere. Catering and service was top notch as well.
  • Beautiful venue for a wedding and it's just too bad that our server was not very friendly. The small children at our table were served apple sauce with their meal but given a fork to use. We asked the server for a spoon and she said "we don't have spoons so you'll just have to make due with a fork" When it was time to serve the wedding cake she tossed it on the table and walked away as i asked for a glass of water.
  • This place is absolutely gorgeous it's a nice place to do a wedding or a special event
  • We just had the most amazing wedding at the Powel. People said they feel like they were at a venue only found in movies. There literally is no other better venue around. The coordinator was great, caterer was awesome, set up was perfect, everything was over the top great. Visit their open houses and get blown away. Everything we expected and more.
