The Betty H. Reckas Cultural Center is a hidden gem. TGIS is proud to be the exclusive caterer at this venue. This classic ballroom has been completely remodeled with all the modern amenities. The walls are a rich tan, that matches any decor scheme. Crown molding accents the room and adds a bit of luxury to the already classic beauty. What other touches await you here? A cozy fireplace, sparkling chandeliers, and a beautiful built in bar.

One of our recent weddings, made full use of this space. The main ballroom doubles as the ceremony and reception space. Guests entered the ceremony surround by soft draping. Unknown to them, after enjoying appetizers and refreshing cocktails, they would be served dinner in the same room.

Modern seating was used to give this event an interesting twist. Guest were seated at round tables, as well as long family style tables. Using this seating arrangement gives guests something to talk about.

The roomy foyer was a great spot for a welcome table. After a delicious dinner, guest could be seated next to fireplace in the cozy lounge. Those guests with a sweet tooth were not forgotten. A colorful candy buffet was yet one more thing the guests will be talking about for years to come.

If you’re getting married in Long Beach, and you want a venue that has it all, from fine cuisine, to a modern & classic ballroom, with room for everyone to eat, drink, dance and lounge, come visit The Betty Reckas Cultural Center. We have room for you, your guests, and all of your interesting ideas.
