Venue Hunt: A. Venue Events Hall

The first venue we visited was A. Venue Events Hall at the A. Venue mall. My contact was Raymund Recto and he accommodated us warmly when we arrived. Since our headcount was 250 pax, he offered us two of their biggest venues: the multi-purpose hall and the music lounge.

The Multi Purpose Hall:





Notice the mirrors and the poles? Apparently, this venue is also a dance studio when there isnt't an event. Here are the pro's and con's of the venue:

PRO's: 
- Very Accessible
- A lot of parking options
- Reasonable price

CON's:
- A bit smelly, probably because of the sweat since it's a dance studio
- Too small for 250 guests
- A bit awkward since it's inside a mall

The Music Lounge




The music lounge is A. Venue's gimmick place. It is usually where albums are launched. If our wedding theme were a rock party, this venue would have been perfect. So here are my pros and cons:

PRO's:
- Accessibility
- Light and Sounds and band equipment readily available
- There's an open terrace for smokers
- Parking

CON's:
- Not appropriate for a wedding
- No tables/chairs. Only lounge chairs
- Too small for 250 guests
- Smells of smoke and cigarette

The place had good potential, but we felt that it wasn't just a good fit for our wedding. Raymund was very friendly and helpful in showibg us around, but we had to let it go. I think this venue is better for Christmas parties or similar events.

  1. Great place. Crowd was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
