This is one of the most beautiful buildings in San Diego. It's unique "old world" style lends itself to a great venue for private parties. Back in the day the Abbey use to serve lunch to the public, but now its used for private events only. The catering is done in the kitchen and I must say, its very good!

More about Hornblower Cruises & Events

Today, The Abbey on Fifth is a private special event facility managed by Hornblower Cruises & Events, two-time recipients of the prestigious "Finest Service Award." They invite you to stage your party, wedding, or corporate event amid the Abbey's dramatic classic décor. Two enormous domed, stained glass skylights bathe the room in a pale yellow glow, while the twelve luminous stained glass windows cast their own heavenly light. Standing in the middle of this former church, you feel as if you're in a Renaissance cathedral: dark, polished redwood molding and woodwork is everywhere??framing doors, railings, walls and in curved balconies. Stunning fixtures made of hand-blown, orange-yellow glass are suspended from 50-foot ceilings. Wedding ceremonies take place where the pulpit used to be, and no matter where guests are seated??on the ground floor or up on the mezzanine??they can easily see the goings-on. Add a few candelabras and you have the perfect place for a Renaissance celebration (one wedding party actually wore tights!). The Abbey is a full-service facility, so after a ceremony up to 300 guests are treated to an elegant reception. Gourmet cuisine is prepared on-site in the Abbey's commissary, where bread has been broken and wine has been shared for the past nine decades. The services of a full-time wedding coordinator are also available to help you make the most of this unique location. The Abbey, a cherished San Diego landmark, is sure to appeal to any couple feeling a kinship with tradition and romance.
