We went during the day and it wasn't technically open but people were there and took us for a short tour. It's a beautiful place and would make a great place to host a wedding.

I believe this is the best place around Bel Air to host a small to medium sized event. I have had events here and attended a number of shows and functions here and always been quite happy with the location.

A nostalgic visit to a time long past... Could use a bit of artistic input as far as the displays. They seem a bit disheveled and could use some sprucing up.

Been to many events at the Lirio and am always taken by the historic significance of the place and what it's occupants brought with it. It's a great space for a meeting or a party.
