The Vault

Downtown Tampa – Chock-full of original art deco details revealing its former life as The Exchange National Bank of 1923, The Vault offers a unique event space with luxurious finishes and historic charm in the heart of downtown Tampa.

The first bank to be built in Tampa, many of the neoclassical elements remain, including the floor to ceiling windows, intricate medallion details, and of course the bank vault of its namesake (often used as a cozy bar space or unique dessert room for events). This sophisticated wedding venue is perfect for couples who seek timeless and classic design, a vibrant, bustling city feel, and all-inclusive convenience for their celebration.

The fully-restored interior boasts 6,000 square feet of event space with 35-foot ceilings and a second-floor mezzanine level overlooking the reception and is ideal for groups of up to 300 guests. Included in the rental fees are a bridal suite, tables, white Chiavari chairs, security personnel, restroom attendant, and a parking attendant.
