For your special event, you want a space as unique as you. The World Cafe Live footprint includes two separate spaces: a cafe and restaurant that accommodates 120 seated or 200 standing, and a separate dazzling music hall that comfortably seats 300 and expands to accommodate 650 standing. In each space you can expect flawless sound, lighting, and video, on-site production and catering, flexible seating, and adjacent secure parking. It all comes together in one harmonious package at the Philadelphia region's premier music destination and events facility, World Cafe Live.

Choosing World Cafe Live for your event venue means a one-stop shop. Your experienced event planner can help you create the event of your dreams down to the smallest details – all you have to do is enjoy.

In either our upscale cafe or our dramatic 3-tiered performance space, you can expect the best. There are full kitchens and bars on both levels operated by experienced banquet chefs and professional service staff.
