South Gate Center: Ceremony & Reception Venue

Sarasota’s South Gate Center & Hall

We’ve had many brides asking about a reasonably priced reception venue to rent for after their Sarasota / Siesta Key beach ceremony. As you’ll see from the pictures, the grounds at the South Gate Center are great ( 5 Acres ) of  large oak trees with waterfront views from the Phillippi Creek.

The center itself is light and bright with 2 walls of floor to ceiling glass, the center can seat up to 140 with room for dancing and has a large, well equipped kitchen that will make caterers smile. 

The center is also a good choice to have your ceremony, see some pictures below of the grounds at the center.

You just might decide to have your wedding ceremony AND reception at the ‘South Gate Center‘, check it out in person if you can.

Here’s an affordable reception venue after your Sarasota / Siesta beach ceremony.
