With its home in historic downtown Pasadena just a few miles from the big city, Noor captures the dazzling, urban charm unique to Los Angeles. The city has embraced the boutique event space, as evidenced by its recognition as “Best of Pasadena” in Pasadena Weekly for four years in a row. Thanks to the Noor team’s dedication to the mission to create consistent, flawless events, Noor plays host to an impressive collection of special occasions. Boasting three stunning spaces—each with their own distinctive design styles—the venue offers an enchanting range of appeal, beauty, and intrigue. Whether the experience sought is intimate or extravagant, traditional or unexpected, Noor invites and guides its guests to bring every detail within their visions to life.
Every curve, line, and detail merged within the walls of Noor tells of art and inspiration. A classic bar rests at the entrance into Sofia Foyer, wooden top gleaming under the shower of crystal beads that fall from the rectangular pendant chandelier above. The curling vines carved into the chandelier give clue to the Art Nouveau inspired Sofia Ballroom just beyond the Foyer. Exquisitely designed, Sofia Ballroom is an elegant blend of dark and light. Curving lines dance across the shadowy ceiling to match the dark wood floors as white pillars and walls light up the ballroom. Lavish ceiling lamps resembling flower petals drop down from the dark while the blush pink drapes envelop the room. A corner of the ballroom opens into a balcony, offering a glimpse of the beautiful dome of Pasadena City Hall. Ella Ballroom, on the other hand, is inspired by the style of Art Deco. Decorative, geometric moulding line the dark wood ceiling as small chandeliers encased in sheer shades add golden orbs of light to create a warm ambiance. In the attached Ella Foyer, a geometric set of wall panels dotted with metallic accents frame the lit-up bar. The most idyllic of Noor’s spaces, the outdoor Terrace is bordered by a circular old world trellis dripping with hanging plants and vines. The main attraction, a vibrant and ornate fountain, lies in the center under the open sky. In this gorgeous courtyard setting with its magical ambiance, a celebration under the stars is a given.
