Guy’s Party Center opened as Guy’s Restaurant and Party Center in April 1981. This new family owned business in Akron featured a fine dining restaurant and a beautiful ballroom to host wedding receptions as well as many other events. Through the years, Guy’s enjoyed much success both in the restaurant and the party center business. Sadly, a fire in 1997 destroyed the very popular Guy’s Restaurant, which grew to become a landmark in Akron. Rather than re-build the restaurant, the Guy’s family chose to construct another ballroom and became known as Guy’s Party Center, focusing their attention only on wedding receptions and banquet events.
