We had our wedding 02/07/15 and I couldn't wait to share our experience. Absolutely breathtaking!!!! From the big iron doors to the modern bar/ lounge area, to the beautiful main hall. This place is an all in one very well done gem that you would not expect considering its in between houses and easy to miss! Once you get past the marble front and big bay windows with 2 wrought iron doors you enter into a lavish hall ready with interior lighting including DJ lights, Dry Ice Machine and great staff. Armen was our point of contact and was there with us from start to finish. Talk about multi- tasking to the MAX, Armen took care of so much and our day was perfect thanks to him. We had so many compliments of the venue and the food, many people requesting information for future parties.

I could sit here all day detailing EVERYTHING but seeing is believing. My wife had her fairytale wedding and I couldn't be happier with Armen and his staff. We had a blast!!THANK YOU ARMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My wife and I were very fortunate to have our wedding reception at this venue last month. We were blown away by how beautiful the palace was when we first stepped in. And I must say, we couldn't have been happier with the staff... They were beyond helpful, fully mannered, and catered to our every need. The place itself is a magnificent sight: From a great dance floor, to am amazing outside patio... The lights, the sound system, and not to mention, the food!... I've never seen so much delicious, and especially fresh food. Makes us want to get married all over again.
We were looking for a venue in the area of Pasadena we went to a few. Imperial Palace not only was it beautiful, lighting was amazing, chandeliers to fit a Princess about to have her Quinseñera Paris theme. The food tasting was great!! On the day of our event everything went smoothly and service was great. Armen was always available to answer any questions or concerns. We had open bar and I must say bar tender was great!!
Armen Thank you so much for the wonderful event on Friday April 26. Francisco and Ligia's wedding was amazing. It was a pleasure to work with you, Leo and the entire staff. Your staff made my job as a Day of coordinator very easy. They were on top of everything and very willing to help with my requests. I truly look forward to working with you in the future.
OMG! This hall is amazing, besides that the attention from all the waiters and especially the manager Armen! This man knows how to win his customers.. Full on attention throughout the whole planning. Very welcoming, and knows how to work with his clients. Service, food, drinks and employees are amazing. You don't get rushed by employees they ate willing to work with too. The lighting and sound thumbs up! I would get married there all over. Thank you Armen hard working guy! Looking foward in having other family events there.
We just had our wedding here last Friday September 20th 2013 =) it was the most beautiful day of my life and I want thank Arman for making it very special. The people from Imperial Palace we're very attentive to details all our guests we're highly impressed by our venue and till today our wedding is all the rave. Our guest keep calling me to tell me to tell how beautiful everything was and how delicious the food was if you're looking for a place to plan your next big event I highly recommend Imperial Palace they're wonderful and they will make your special day it very unforgettable experience.
This place is BEAUTIFUL & amazing! I had my wedding there on November 8th, 2013. Literally all of my guests raved about the food. We had family style & it was a lot of food & very delicious! Nobody left hungry. On top of that the lighting is great. We had smoke come out on our 1st dance. The hall itself is breathtaking & my wedding was a dream come true. Armen was there most of the night making sure everything went well & was always available during the planning process if I had any questions. Highly recommend this place for wedding.
My wife and I had our wedding back in October 2012. The staff led by Armen were amazing and very accommodating. All our needs were met. The site was very elegant and thoroughly wowed our guests. The food was top notch. To this day, we still receive great comments on it. We highly recommend this location for any upcoming event you may have.
I recently had my daughter's Quincenera on October 26, 2013. I booked my event 17 months in advance. Since day one, Armen was very professional, kind and helpful. First, I took my daughter to see the hall of her dreams. Later, I returned with my parents & my two aunts. Armen was so polite and wasn't bothered with the fact that he had to show my family the hall. He gave us a tour of the hall, showed us their awesome lighting system, the green room, etc. Then we sat down and he gave me different options for my budget & dates. Everything turned out Gorgeous! Armen is Amazing!! He was very accommodating to all my requests. He was continuously checking to see how everything was and to see if we needed anything else. The food was delicious and A LOT of it!! His staff (cooks, waiters/waitress, bartenders, security guards even the cleaning crew) were all very polite, professional and helpful. They we're very attentive to details. My daughter's colors were purple and silver. Armen illuminated the walls with the purple lights during dinner. Once the dancing started the lights changed colors. Which made the pictures look amazing as well. My daughter had a waltz & a surprise dance. During her surprise dance, Armen changed the lighting system so that the lights would go to the sound of the music. WOW! Is all I have to say! It gave the dance a whole different feel! The guests were really impressed by the venue, food and the wonderful service! My guests keep calling me to tell me to tell how Stunning everything turned out! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IMPERIAL PALACE! It's worth every penny!! Thank you Armen for all your help!
This hall is beautiful. When we booked the hall back in late 2013 we thought it looked amazing for our wedding, but we we're told it would go through remodeling early 2014. To our surprise we came in after the renovations and found it looking even better than before. The lobby/bar are almost feels like a modern club in Las Vegas. The service is amazing and you can set up your event according to your budget and what you want. Since day one Armen, the manager, was great to work with. My favorite thing about hun was how upfront and honest he was about the how everything worked. He gave us an upfront number with no hidden fees. Armen never made us feel out of place or unimportant. My wife and I assumed the prices were going to be ridiculously high and out of range, but surprisingly this was the best quote we got out of a few locations in the Pasadena area. The day of our wedding was as we expected, amazing! They had a few issues with the light systems early in the evening before our guests took their seats, but they quickly fixed the issue practically unnoticed. The decorations looked great with the high-end lighting in the hall. Our pictures are looking unbelievable! I highly recommend anyone to at least go check out this place in person.
