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 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.

The Ceremony:

  • Ceremony Rental Fee includes: venue, tables, 200 white Chiavari chairs, ceremony draping, uplighting and premium sound system
  • Ceremony Rental Fee: $4,000 (weekend)

The Cocktail Hour:

Pocket Park next to The Vault is used for cocktail hour after the ceremony, so the venue space can be flipped into your dream reception.

  • $1,675 when accompanied by The Vault rental or included in the “Wedding Package.”

The Reception:

Receptions at The Vault accommodate 200 seated, with a dance floor.


What Makes The Vault Unique:

Authentic, walk-in money vault provides a unique area for any creative use (i.e. cigar rolling, food station, wedding cake display, bar, photo booth). Floor-to-ceiling windows offering downtown Tampa skyline view. Restored ceilings and marble floor from the 1920’s. Mezzanine level and glass room included for VIP/ bridal lounge. Diverse decorating and catering options. Charming Pocket Park available for cocktail hour. Walking distance to downtown Tampa’s boutique hotels, restaurants, churches.

Romantic Maroon and White Downtown Tampa Wedding

“I chose The Vault as our venue because of how naturally beautiful it is. There was just something about it that spoke to me and made me feel like it would capture our love story perfectly. Aside from the overall feel, we really really enjoyed the food they provided. Not a single guest left hungry!” -Brittany and Daniel

Romantic Dusty Blue and White Wedding

“We knew we didn’t want a typical ballroom feel, so the fact that The Vault offered more of an open space that let us incorporate our own personal touches was perfect. It was important for us to find something that was classic with a bit of history and given the background of The Vault we were very happy with our choice. Everyone we met was wonderful to work with. The team was always accessible and willing to meet as many times as we needed to figure out all the details.” -Hillary and Marshall

“The Vault was so luxurious and grand. It was lit up and not dark or old feeling at all. We knew from the moment we saw the venue that we wanted to highlight all of its beauty, and not cover it up with too many drapes and add-ins.” -Olivia and Dany

“Our main concern was fitting all of our guests into a room comfortably for the whole event, so space was one of the main concerns. The Vault is reasonably priced for everything you get, and James and Casey are very invested in every event. They were kind and flexible since the day we met them, and they went out of their way to make a few things happen that weren’t a big deal to us, but made us feel special.” -Luke and Bri
