Why We Like This Place

  • The huge arches and gorgeous balconies in the Grand Lobby are breathtaking when illuminated by the nighttime lights of the adjacent plaza.
  • On-site parking and a light rail station right outside make getting here a breeze for all your guests.
  • Two hours of gallery viewing are included in your event package, a great alternative to—or enhancement for—serving cocktails!
