  • Once we walked into the magical room of the Forbes Theater room we knew that we wanted our special day to be at this location. Kristy has been an amazing resource, helpful, and has been there for us since day 1. She has answered all of our concerns right away. We can not recommend the location or Kristy enough!!

  • I cannot say enough about 500 Pearl. We were actually their first wedding but you would never know it. The service was flawless, the food was amazing and the entire night was perfect. We held our ceremony and reception at the venue and our guests also stayed at the hotel on-sight. In addition to all of this our photographer took some incredible photos in the building. The historic architecture and well done interior design made for some unique and beautiful photo opportunities. We were even able to end the whole event with a beautiful catered breakfast the next morning for our guests that stayed the night at the hotel. The venue also had unique personal touches, like the ability for me to write a note to each of our guests staying the night at the hotel and pre place the welcome bags in the room. Since most of my family is out of town and traveled several hundred miles to come to the wedding it was nice to be able to add this personal touch. Our friends and family shared that ... Read more

  • Postponing my wedding was heartbreaking but I felt like Kristy at 500 Pearl truly cared about us and all of her brides and grooms. She has been extremely responsive and accommodating throughout the planning process. We booked the venue and got a quote from another staff member before the venue was completely finished, and Kristy has been so wonderful working with us to make sure the space is everything we imagined when we first toured the space!! I am so excited to see the room and taste the amazing food on the day of :)

  • Kristy has been so much help! She allowed us to view the venue multiple times before we officially made the decision to book! She answered all questions our family and wedding party had. Kristy knows how to make us feel special and now just another wedding. She is very personable and I know I can count on her the day of to make everything run smoooooth! Very excited to hold our wedding there!

  • Kristy Kuhar and the entire 500 pearl staff have been nothing but accommodating and helpful during the process of planning our wedding. They go above and beyond in making sure the entire experience is easy and enjoyable. Not to mention the beautiful architecture of the entire building. If anyone is planning a wedding in the Buffalo NY area, they should check out 500 pearl!

  • 500 Pearl is absolutely gorgeous. It has amazing views of the city of Buffalo whether you are booking a room through Aloft or visiting the rooftop bar (the sunset is incredible up there). They have awesome drinks and food, and very friendly staff. My fiancé and I booked our wedding reception there after falling in love with the historical newly renovated Forbes Theater. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we have had to postpone our reception to next year. Although I expected the process of postponement to be quite brutal, working with Kristy (sales and event planner) the process has been nothing but smooth sailing. She has been incredibly helpful and great to work with throughout this whole planning process. She’s quick to respond, insightful and very supportive. You can tell she wants to do everything she can to ensure the event is special and runs smoothly. I truly recommend visiting 500Pearl for a night out, and/or hosting an event. It’s really something special, and has been a gre... Read more

  • We had planned our wedding at 500 Pearl for May 23rd. Of course this wedding was not possible due to COVID-19, but 500 Pearl went above and beyond supporting us during this time. Not only were we so impressed by the helpful and knowledgable staff, the renovated space we booked was also gorgeous! Through all of our planning the team at 500 Pearl was flexible and went out of their way to make our experience pleasant even through a pandemic. I highly recommend the venue spaces at 500 Pearl.

  • Choosing 500 Pearl for our wedding reception was the best decision we made! When we first heard about and toured the venue they were still deep in construction, and although we were nervous of the possibility of the building and renovation not being completed, everyone we worked with from the start was open, honest, communicated in a timely manner, and worked with us to meet our budget while delivered our reception wants. Forbes Theater was our reception room and we are still getting comments about how beautiful and unique it was, along with the rest of the building. (Our wedding was 9/21/19 and, yes, everything was open on time and stunning!) A brief shout out to Laura who was pivotal in our wedding planning process! She is a saint! She made the whole experience and day of smooth and was easy to communicate with and helpful with literally everything! Overall, all staff we were worked with were great & accommodating. The décor I brought they set up exactly as I pictured and even ad... Read more

  • 500 Pearl exceeded all of our wedding expectations and made our night a night we will never forget. The food was incredible. All of the staff was kind, friendly and willing to help. The venue was romantic and beautiful. Don't know how we would have done it all without the help of Laura. She was patient and kept us on track to make sure our night went as smooth as possible. Thank you to the team at 500 Pearl!

    Good Morning Chassity, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are thrilled that we as a team were able to create such an unforgettable experience for you on one of the most important days of your life. Thank you for letting us be apart of it! Best Regards, Kristy

  • My wife and I looked at about fifteen different venues in the area before finding 500 Pearl. Each of them we toured really didn’t fit the style of wedding we wanted to have, but we figured we would have to settle. When we heard about 500 Pearl, we weren’t really sure what to expect but we toured the property in hardhats as everything was not even near completion back in January. Sarah and Kate were absolutely phenomenal early on and painted the picture of how amazing this space would be once opened. When we left the tour, we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding. We were a little worried things wouldn’t be done in time for our wedding as it was the first event planned, but the team consistently followed up reassuring us that things would be perfect and they did not let us down. Laura, Kali, Sarah, Kate and the entire team truly made the experience unforgettable and we want to thank you all again. This space is like no other in the area. The amenities they offer, the l...

  • This venue is unique and beautiful. It was the perfect space for our wedding of 200 and there were still spaces (ex. the balcony) for people to explore and not be stuck at the table. I love the historic nature of it and that it had a new hotel attached. They are still working through the kinks of being a new popular venue, but the people that they have working there are so very knowledgeable and kind. The food was delicious and different packages allowed for you to build the wedding you wanted. We loved our hot cocoa bar and the late night food options. It made me wish I could have been a guest at our own wedding. :) Our names were even in lights on the marque outside the Forbes Theater. I feel so lucky that we found this venue.

  • I worked with a few different people along the way and everyone was fantastic. Kristy was my main point of contact for the details and she was wonderful - patient, responsive, enthusiastic and by the end felt like more of a friend than planner. We got married in Grand Aeries and it was gorgeous. Highly recommend!
