Atlanta Gala and Black-Tie Venues:

The Kessel D. Stelling Ballroom at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre is one of Atlanta’s most prestigious event venues. This beautiful ballroom is unsurpassed as a classic backdrop for special occasions, from corporate meetings and seminars to glitzy social engagements and black-tie galas.

The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre stage is available for custom, elegant and unique events. The beautifully decorated reception area is ideal for pre-event socializing, and features floor-to-ceiling windows and an open-air terrace, dazzling your guests with a grand entrée to ballroom events.


“Thank you for all the effort, flexibility and professionalism. You provide the kind of consistently high services and support that we have come to expect and depend on that makes it a pleasure to do business with your event planning staff.”

Gala and Black-Tie Catering:

Excellent food and attentive, personal service create memorable events. The gala custom event catering offerings feature contemporary American and Mediterranean cuisine seasonally updated, complemented by an extensive selection of fine wines. The culinary team also designs customized menus. Whether it is a refreshment break, a casual buffet, an executive luncheon, a formal dinner, a cocktail reception, a pre-show party or customized concession fare, every culinary event can be a special occasion.

Executive Chef M. G. Farris is an Atlanta native who trained with top chefs nationally and abroad. A graduate of the prestigious New England Culinary Institute (NECI), Farris has worked at notable establishments in Cape Town, South Africa, New York, and Atlanta. Farris does not confine his creativity to the standard menu. To guests who wish to create event-specific fare, Farris entreats: “Tell me what you are look for, where you want to take your event. I will make it happen.”
