In 1919, the Exchange National Bank was built in the heart of Tampa. With a structure steeped in neo-classic architecture, this building has stood for over 104 years as the epitome of elegance, whimsical, and classic among Tampa’s event venues. You can easily picture champagne flowing, a 1920s vibe running through the room, and a Bessie Smith song playing in the background.
Its high ceilings and beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows lend themselves to a gorgeous ceremony set-up. The original marble floor and the placement of the lighting provide a gorgeous ambiance. Because of the size of the space, you can have up to 200 guests there celebrating with you. Imagine, 6000 squared ft!
Once the ceremony is over, guests can walk over to a beautiful outdoor park that is adjacent to the venue for cocktail hour. Decorated with the same artistic vibe as the ballroom, the park contains a fountain, outdoor lighting, and a bar area for your guests. Meanwhile, the ballroom is converted into your reception area. Tables, chairs, and linens can be provided by the venue, making it one less thing to worry about.
The venue has its own in-house catering company, with a fantastic selection of dishes to please all palates. The bartenders are friendly and courteous. The staff is on-point, welcoming, and warm, always willing to go above and beyond for clients and the vendors who step into The Vault. From that first tour until you are heading out to your honeymoon, every staff member you meet makes you feel like your wedding is in good hands.
And lastly, the reason for its name! The Vault still has the original bank vault within its premises, making it a perfect photo moment! Some couples take pictures there of just themselves, others use it as a photobooth option for their guests. Believe me, it will make your wedding guests have a memorable night!
