This building is lovingly restored to be a lovely backdrop to whatever function is being held there. We went to an Artists Market and enjoyed the variety of artists showing for the day. The Nova bar served up some tasty drinks, very creative and pretty!

Very nice event space. Perfect for any occasion. Lots of bar options. The indoor and outdoor areas are gorgeous with beautiful lighting. Upstairs loft is a nice touch. Event valet was necessary. Would recommend for an private event.

Not an attraction; just a rental space for parties, receptions, etc. Bare brick walls, hardwood floor. Large floor area, cool but not cold, comfortable but not stuffy. Large bar area and 2nd-floor balcony. Acoustics not great.More
