The Prado is a National Historic Landmark which was originally built for the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition. This two-year festival was held in Balboa Park to promote San Diego and to celebrate the 1914 opening of the Panama Canal. Since then, The House of Hospitality has undergone a complete reconstruction and modernization. The venue now boasts restored architecture, artwork, sculptures, alcoves, gardens, and fountains. Every effort was made to historically renovate the House of Hospitality in keeping with its original Spanish, Moorish and Mexican architectural design. The renovated House of Hospitality also features lush historical gardens and a courtyard, elegant banquet rooms, romantic terraces and the outdoor grandeur of the historic Casa Del Rey Moro Gardens. The Prado at Balboa Park offers more than 22,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space and can accommodate groups of 20-20,000 guests.
This is one of the most visually stunning venues in San Diego. It offers a huge array of photo opportunities and areas for your guests to explore before and after your wedding or event. With three different room options for your reception or event, you are sure to be able to find the one perfect for your dream event. Check out more info on The Prado here.
