Wedding Venue Spotlight: The Palm Boston
The Palm Boston, One International Place, recently announced that its grandiose dining space is now available to host weddings. Yes, they’ve been the site of smaller events in the past (think rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and smaller weddings), but nothing like this.
The breathtaking room features 30-foot tall ceilings and extraordinary granite columns stretching the height of the grand dining room, so you’ll certainly garner a wow factor that rivals even Boston’s most extravagant venues. They now boast a talented team of event planners to work with you to reimagine the space and fully transform the dining room to bring your vision to life. You can have 175 seated in the dining room or go for reception style up to 300.
Begin the evening on the Palm’s expansive outdoor patio for a cocktail reception, where guests can enjoy views of the Rose Kennedy Greenway while noshing on passed hors d’oeuvres customized by the Palm’s expert culinary team (helmed by Executive Chef Karen Mitchell). The multi-level layout of the dining room offers the newlyweds and guests a birds’-eye view during dinner and dancing.
Whatever your menu choices end up being, you should certainly consider their signature Palm Surf & Turf (a jumbo Nova Scotia Lobster and The Palm’s famous filet mignon). And no big day is complete without cocktails to celebrate. Distinguished Boston bartender Julie Re works closely with you to identify flavors and create the perfect signature libations. Whether you’re looking for classic cocktails or fresh new trends, her concoctions take your thirsty guests from cocktail hour to last call.
Of course, the inside is just like all the other fabulous Palms, full of fun and fancy cartoonists’ work and sketches of famous patrons, a tradition honoring the 1926 Manhattan flagship Palm’s money-saving tactic of trading cartoonists meals for drawings. If you’re so inclined, they can even add a caricature of you and your to-be onto the wall as part of your wedding package. How’s that for showing your face in the hottest spot in Boston?
