Kessel D. Stelling Ballroom

From its elegant décor and promises of impeccable service, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre’s Kessel D. Stelling Ballroom is one of metropolitan Atlanta’s most prestigious venues. Uniting to create an ambiance of radiance and warmth are the Ballroom’s rich wood finishes, brilliantly embellished wall coverings, deep-toned Axminster-woven wool carpet, and nine shimmering custom chandeliers. The Ballroom boasts a number of features that invite planners to indulge their creativity. The room’s more than 200 lights include fixtures that can be variously aimed as well as adjusted to different intensity levels. LED lights located within ceiling soffits are programmable to emit the glow of 64 different colors, which the frosted chandeliers reflect to enhance an event’s mood.
Not overlooked in establishing the Ballroom’s cachet are the effects of distinctive furnishings, tabletop settings and decorative elements. Comfortable flex-back chairs; sleek, modern-design flatware; frosted water glasses, exquisite china, linen table cloths and napkins in rich hues of gold, black and burgundy (interchangeable with other colors to complement an event’s decor) — all serve to confer a measure of prestige and create an elite setting.

Grand Lobby

Nothing bespeaks “special occasion” like the majestic Cobb Energy Centre Grand Lobby, with two grand staircases, specially designed Murano-glass chandeliers, and walls of Venetian plaster. The Lobby’s three levels can accommodate cocktail receptions, seated meals and corporate meetings, and feature a view of the downtown skyline.

John A. Williams Theatre 

The Centre’s versatility also offers corporations, associations, colleges and religious groups the option to hold lectures, major presentations, business meetings, graduations, and religious services in the John A. Williams Theatre. For a truly theatrical event, the theatre stage is made to impress the most elite V.I.P.’s with intimate, custom-tailored dinners and receptions overlooking the 2,750-seat theatre.


The Centre’s 3,100-square-foot outdoor terrace is a classic location for cocktail parties and receptions. Located directly outside of the theater Lobby, an event on the Terrace signifies a cosmopolitan, intimate experience.


Personal service and top-notch amenities turn an ordinary event into a best-in-class event.  Including top-notch technology experts, security professionals and engineers, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre staff are personally dedicated to delivering support services that translate into gratifying, flawlessly executed events.
