City Lites, the second floor of the expansive Fava Building, captures the history and essence of Baltimore. Displays interpreting the history and people of Baltimore include a trolley, period row houses, the old Royal theater, marketplace, and the White Tower. The historic White Tower Diner was a centerpiece attraction when the building housed the Baltimore City Life Museums. This unique reception facility is ideal for cocktail parties, wedding receptions, networking events, fundraisers, mitzvahs and other private and corporate events.
