Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Once the world’s largest power-generating plant, this 1891 architectural gem is a shining example of late Industrial Era craftsmanship. It’s been artfully restored to bring out the building’s stunning design, and outfitted with everything necessary for a stellar celebration.
  • The Main Floor features a stunning, 60-foot ceiling braced by exposed steel beams and set with a row of gleaming skylights. Still more light flows in through oversized windows, and details like original tile work and exposed brick add warmth and vintage charm.
  • On the Mezzanine, you’ll find a more intimate spot, with two wood-rich rooms connected by a soaring rotunda, a relic of the 252 foot tall chimney that used to stand between the two spaces. It can be rented on its own, or in conjunction with the Main Room.
