About Us

Ritz Charles was established over 30 years ago with a vision of a high-quality venue focusing on social gatherings, fundraisers, corporate meetings, and of course, weddings. The beautiful 15,000 square foot facility on Meridian Street was the catalyst to additional venues and offsite catering. Over the years, Ritz Charles has acquired a renowned culinary staff, professional servers, dedicated managers, and talented Event Specialists.

The original Ritz Charles features the Ballrooms, Garden Pavilion and Chapel. Venues across the city that trust their events to Ritz Charles include City Hardware, Lindley Farmstead at Chatham Hills, Coxhall Mansion and Gardens, The Village of WestClay, The Indianapolis Public Library, The Indianapolis Artsgarden, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Laurel Hall, Mustard Seed Barn, and many more. Additionally, Ritz Charles caters to private homes, corporate offices, and personal parties. As a proud family owned business, each event receives a personal event specialist and experienced day of event coordinator that are thrilled to be a part of your special event.
