Virtual Venue Visit at LIUNA Station, Hamilton ON

{ LIUNA Station }

“You’ll hear it in the click of your heels on the Italian marble floors. You’ll see it in the towering walls of oak paneling. You’ll feel it in the billowing Versace™ draperies.”  - with a description like THAT welcoming you to their website, how could you NOT want to visit LIUNA Station?

An acronym for The Laborers’ International Union of North America, LIUNA offers classic, timeless luxury. This architectural masterpiece is testimony to rail travel’s popularity and is reminiscent of the opulence of a golden era.

LIUNA Station has been lovingly and carefully restored to its original splendour. Complete with incredible Art Deco statues and paintings, Italian marble floors and ornate ceilings, this venue offers some of the most extraordinary detail available to brides in the Hamilton and surrounding areas.

{ the Grand Lobby }

LIUNA’s Grand Lobby, complete with original marble columns and a unique gold and copper ceiling, is formerly the concourse of the train station. This immense room also doubled as the general waiting room for passengers or eager relatives. The Grand Lobby can comfortably accommodate groups of 150 to 300 guests.

Whether you choose for the Grand Lobby to simply greet your guests,  host your cocktail reception or even provide the backdrop for your ceremony, its towering ceilings and lavish furnishings, are bound to leave your guests in awe.

{ the Continental Express Ballroom }

LIUNA Station offers two elegant ballrooms to host your group. For smaller, more intimate events, the Continental Express Ballroom provides seating for 75-150 guests. This space was formerly the cafe for the train station and served to accommodate many travellers for a quick bite to eat!

{ the Grand Central Ballroom }

If your wedding guest list tilts the scales at 250-700, the immense structure known as LIUNA’s Grand Ballroom is one of the most lavish banquet halls you can choose. Formerly serving as the Station’s waiting area, this majestic ballroom now provides brides with a gorgeous space to host their majestic day!

{ the Grounds }

Pristinely manicured hedges surround colourful gardens and a classic water fountain directly outside LIUNA Station. This space offers Newlyweds and wedding parties a gorgeous photo location without additional travel.

Located in the heart of downtown Hamilton, this venue is easily accessible from the QEW and offers your guests ample complimentary parking onsite, as well as various accommodation options in the immediate area.

{ an Inclusive venue }

LIUNA Station is a full service catering venue, with service modeled after the world’s finest dining destinations. Comprehensive menu and beverage packages allow brides to know that no detail has been spared, with all catering logistics (i.e. linens, tables, chairs, tableware, and flatware) covered in an inclusive per person cost. You can work closely with the LIUNA team to custom-tailor your menu to reflect your culture, your personal tastes, and even create signature bar drinks that match your colour scheme!
