Ritz Charles was established over 30 years ago by Carmel native, Chuck Lazzara. With a vision of a high-quality venue focusing on social gatherings, fundraisers, corporate meetings, and of course weddings, Lazzara created the beautiful 15,000 square foot facility on Meridian Street. Over the years, Lazzara has acquired a renowned culinary staff, amazing servers, dedicated managers, and talented Event Specialists. Today, Ritz Charles has expanded the facility and caters to multiple locations in the Indianapolis area.
Ritz Charles venues consist of Ballrooms, Garden Pavilion, Chapel, Coxhall Mansion and Gardens, The Village of WestClay, The Indianapolis Public Library, The Indianapolis Artsgarden, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Laurel Hall, Mustard Seed, and many more. Additionally, Ritz Charles caters to homes, corporate offices, and personal parties. Each event receives a personal Event Specialist. The team is made up of three women, Casey Lazzara, Lindsey Mazeika, and Maddie LaDow.
