Lots of lighting and gorgeous chandeliers. Highly recommend.”

We Welcome All Types of Events

Any event you have, we’ve got you covered. The space lends itself to a variety of functions, all of which will have incredible window views and an amazing ambience of warmed elegance that will delight your guests and bring your party to life with minimal expense in decorating. The scene is already set, and the props room is right there for you to pick up those cozy seating pieces for conversational groupings, along with antiques and other decorative touches. Galas and art shows often proceed with dining and live artistic endeavors on the second floor and the patron’s cocktails and auction and party time upstairs, with the greatest crowd scenes moving up and down that gorgeous staircase in cocktail attire.
