Union Transfer, Philadelphia’s premier music venue is available for your private event. A former luggage transfer station for the adjacent Reading Railroad, the space has been renovated into a beautiful and unique event hall. Sky-high ceilings, dramatic chandeliers, stained glass throughout the building coupled with a state of the art sound and lighting system ensures your event will be one to remember. With a large lobby, four bars and a mezzanine with tiered seating and a balcony we can host events from 200 to 1200 people.

Centrally located in Center City, we are one of the few facilities to feature a parking lot for your guests (We have two of them!) Only a 10 minute walk from several different public transportation stops and just a few blocks from I-95/676 entrance/exit ramps. Getting to Union Transfer could not be easier.

Awesome venue. The building is an absolutely perfect setting for more intimate concert going experiences. Aesthetically quite pleasing, sound is great, staff was friendly. More than one bar for your adult beverage needs. Open floorplan with upstairs and downstairs general admission standing. Not a bad view to be had. Easy enough to get to in the big city of Philadelphia as well.

I really liked this place. Pretty easy to get to. I like old buildings. I could have spent a few hours just photographing it. Sound was really good. [Mixed quite well. Saw Ingrid Michaelson last night] The only problem for us was my wife has a bad back. Also, she can't stand for long periods. If you have the same problem. Get there early. Go into the bar [assuming you're old enough] & go up the short flight of steps to the small bar. There are chairs there. She still did good. [Not too much pain today.] We loved the intimate setting. Staff are extremely helpful and kind.

Nice space, nice atmosphere. Horrible place for a metal show due to poor sound quality. Do not go here for a metal show because either the PA system blows for rock/metal guitar or the people there do not know how to set the system up for metal bands. This venue's sound is better-suited for pop contemporary, hip-hop, and lighter music. The sound at Union Transfer made a top metal band sound like their guitars were buried or hiding; sort of analogous to many speakers and sound systems/stereos nowadays: many are not good for rock/metal. Go elsewhere for a metal show or you're wasting money.

My favorite music venue in Philadelphia. A really cool space, converted from a former Spaghetti Factory! The sound is great, and the space is organized so it's easy to find a good spot to see the stage. It's got a nice bar space in the back where you can take a breather, or sit out an opener you're not interested in. This venue hosts a lot of indie acts as well as some more popular bands and singer/songwriters. The ticket prices are always really reasonable and it's not a Ticketmaster venue which I love!

One of my favorite philly venues. It's a perfect size since popular artists play there but it isn't a huge arena and still feels intimate. The bathrooms and general space are always clean and well maintained. Drinks are good and not too overpriced for a music venue. I especially like the balcony. Overall a good place to see shows.
