Your Special Day

Celebrate with us!

Romantic Ruins are being revived. In a dramatic endeavor, Towne Properties and Receptions Event Centers have converged 12227685_1680106708899854_7123526967617122211_n (1)to revitalize The Monastery at St. Paul Place in Mount Adams. Rich in Cincinnati history and tradition, this beautiful, classic building originally housed the Cincinnati Observatory; thereafter the Holy Cross Monastery. The Monastery’s memorable building; exquisite courtyard, beautifully landscaped grounds offer the perfect location for your event. The scenic views and delightful neighborhood are captivating. As a bonus, the unique photo opportunities are remarkable. The historic building’s elegance and old world charm provide an idyllic setting for the celebration of your lifetime. The Monastery opens as a premier venue for special events in May of 2016. After two years of planning, the historic property’s rejuvenation is guided by carefully reverence for this iconic building which is over 100 years old.

The neighborhood, Mount Adams, often described as an urban island, is a treasure chest of history. The Monastery rests atop that treasure as a crown jewel. Once forgotten, it will not be re-set in the crown of the Queen City. Your guests will now have the opportunity to share in the experience that is The Monastery; to take in the ambiance of old world enchantment – untarnished by modernization.


Finally, in Mount Adams, where parking comes at a premium, The Monastery Event center offers abundant on-site parking. The parking, the magnificence of the entire property, the neighborhood, a creative culinary team and a professional staff dedicated to your event are the perfect components for creating a memorable event of a lifetime.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  The team at The Monastery is honored to host your event and will serve at your pleasure. Please contact us for a private tour and learn more about the services and menu options available.
