About The Agora Theatre Cleveland Wedding Venue

5000 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44103

The Agora Theatre has been a Cleveland institution since it first opened in 1965 in a building near Case Western Reserve University. It bounced around from location to location a few times before settling into its current home at 5000 Euclid Avenue, a musical building with its own rich history. Formerly the Metropolitan Theatre, built in 1913, the Agora Theatre moved in and completed extensive renovations in the late 1980s. In its heyday, the Agora hosted bands and artists like The Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Bob Seger, Genesis, and so many more. Today, the Agora still lives as popular music club and a great gathering space for Cleveland events like weddings!

Details of the Grounds

Over the years, The Agora Theatre and wedding venue in Cleveland became lovingly restored into a stylish concert facility that can accommodate any wedding aesthetic or vision. From the dramatic and elegant to the fun and whimsical, it’s a great place to celebrate with your signature style. The main event space is a giant concert hall with a massive stage upon which many famous bands and musicians have performed. You can create an aisle that stretches down the main floor of the theater, with stairs climbing up to the stage so you and your partner’s vows can be the true main event. 

Once you’re officially married, your guests can gather in the Ballroom for a cocktail hour while the Agora’s expert events team transforms the main theater room into your reception. Whether you plan to have live music or a DJ, the stage is the perfect setup, leaving plenty of room on the floor for your guests to dine and dance the night away. 

Photography Opportunities

The Agora Theatre has so many unique historical and architectural details to use in your Cleveland wedding photos for an authentic rock-and-roll concert venue vibe. Euclid Avenue is a fun touch at night, too, with the marquis lit up! We can also incorporate details like the stage curtains, box seats, artwork, and other features of the theater for dramatic photos that feel quintessentially rock and roll! 

Around the area you’ll find The Flats, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland Museum of Art and many other photogenic areas if you wish for a different backdrop. Just let me know your vibe and I can reccommend some great spots.

Wedding Details

The Agora Theatre is, first and foremost, an events facility, so they know how to throw a wedding party. Their events team, including Kayla and Brooklyn, will help you think through every detail, offering you every option so you can truly create the wedding of your dreams. They also have onsite getting ready suites so you can get ready in style, and they offer professional bar services so you and your guests can kick back and relax – or take on a little extra liquid courage for the dance floor! Grab a sharpie and sign the brick wall where hundreds of other bands have etched their names into – becoming one of the legacies that have graced the Agora.

Red hearts, blue swirls, or a mix of colors? The possibilities go on with the stage lighting with the help of lighting director, Nick. Worried about parking? Don’t be. They have two large parking lots attached to building to help your guests access your special event. With all of the fun benefits of this venue and the help of general manager, Ryan, you’ll feel like rockstars [because you ARE rockstars].
