OUR EVENT SPACE

Transformative, show-stopping and true to our name, visitors walk downstairs into our below ground venue space. Guests then walk into The Club, the first of our two separate and distinct spaces. The contemporary art design of The Club contrasts the Lounge’s mature, rich wood look that’s adorned with gold trimming. Whether part of a reserved, off-site networking group or lively wedding party, our lighting capabilities can set the mood for any crowd.

THE CLUB

Modeled after an underground military bunker, the Club is a sleek, modern space equipped with color LED lighting and convertible DJ booth. The 40-foot, high-definition digital video wall projects images or branding specific to your event. Full spectrum lasers, CO2 cannons and a haze machine help fashion an electrifying atmosphere if desired.  The Club accommodates up to 300 guests (reception style).

THE LOUNGE

Rustic and refined, the Lounge lends a Speakeasy style ambiance to your event. From art deco inspired patterns to contemporary plush seating, this space is old-fashioned in all the best ways. Dangling LED icicle lights, illuminated wood columns and large-format video screens keep the space current. The Lounge offers a V.I.P. experience while accommodating up to 130 guests.
