BLDG39 at the Arsenal

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

About: BLDG39 is a historic wedding venue with modern accents located in the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Erected in 1917 during the wartime era & tucked just inside of the stone confines of the Frankford Arsenal, BLDG39 originated as the paint shop. The space has been thoughtfully remade to preserve the history within its walls, while we celebrate life today. We invite you to come make your mark on history!

Facilities and Capacity: For the cutting edge couple, BLDG39 has been purposefully designed to be one of the most flexible spaces in the Philadelphia region. The venue’s indoor event space consists of a 2,600-square-foot open floor plan. It features 30-foot high ceilings with exposed metal rafters, highlighting the building’s industrious past while tying it together with contemporary flair. The colorful mid-century modern furnishings, warm vintage light fixtures, and geometric mirrors create a dynamic atmosphere for any event. If you’d like to enjoy the open air, there is an adjacent 1,000-square-foot outdoor area connected by a unique garage door. Before the festivities, you, your partner, and your wedding parties are welcome to prepare for the day in the venue’s private suite.

Cuisine: The world we live in today is a diverse place filled with many countries, cultures and types of people. Nowhere can this be seen more prominently than at a gathering of family, friends and co-workers. At BLDG39, we encourage you to celebrate that multicultural experience and our collaborative kitchen gives you the tools to design a menu with a little something for everyone special to you on your guest list. We are home to some of the finest local catering and mobile food businesses, providing you with a unique opportunity to curate a memorable event unlike any other. Imagine a cocktail hour from one of our preferred caterers with a garage door thrown open for a food truck or cart selected from our community of mobile food operators. With a community of culinary teams within the property, the possibilities for a memorable reception meal are endless.
