Pardon us as we preserve our history. Alhambra Hall will be temporarily
closed from
July 1, 2024 through July 1, 2025 for renovations.


Alhambra Hall is nestled in the Old Village section of Mount Pleasant. Overlooking the Charleston Harbor, this former Ferry Terminal is appointed with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and breezy southern porches that wrap three sides of the building. We host only one event per day so there are no conflicts between events.

The building capacity is a maximum of 350 people. The main hall space can comfortably seat approximately 200 people for a sit down dinner.

Alhambra Hall was the perfect venue for our spring wedding! Our ceremony was outdoors and the reception was inside... it was WONDERFUL to not have to make our guest travel from ceremony to reception and the backdrop (the water and marsh) was so on point around sunset. The guests loved it! At one point, more people were outside to catch the sun setting on the water than on the dance floor... Inside the reception area upstairs (they do have an elevator) you have beautiful lights and more than enough space. We had 135 guest and it was perfect for all the tables, food, a sitting area, the dessert table, DJ area, and two bars. We LOVE Alhambra Hall... I can't picture our wedding being anywhere else.

Ryan and Kristy   

We used Alhambra Hall as our reception venue. They were very accommodating with our requests, and allowed us to visit several times during the wedding planning. It is a beautiful space and we were very happy to have chosen Alhambra for our reception.


I booked this venue for our wedding reception. It is absolutely gorgeous with wood floors, lanterns hanging from the rafters, and a wrap-around porch. Perfect for a spring/summer wedding! The space has so much potential, and since it is already naturally beautiful, you don't have to go too crazy with decorations. It is also one of the most affordable venues in the Charleston area!

Alhambra Hall – All rentals Saturday through Thursday night may end as late as midnight (12:00 am) and Friday night at (1:00 am). But, please keep in mind that your evening rental cost includes use of the venue for an event lasting no more than six (6) hours.

Lakeside Pavilion – All rentals end at midnight with one (1) hour to clean up following the event.

We offer a discounted rate for residents booking for their IMMEDIATE family only (parent, spouse, child, sibling). Please see our page about fees and our sample contract for specifics. We cannot make exceptions to the qualifications.

Alhambra Hall has exterior ramps into the building and an elevator to access the main hall which is located on the second floor.

Please arrange to practice at another location or schedule your rehearsal earlier on your rental day. If you choose to rehearse at Alhambra Park (located across the street) you must stay on the park side and no parking spaces on the hall side are to be used. The hall is booked on most dates. The booking party has use of the hall and parking. A rehearsal would interrupt their event and use of the hall.
