Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The elegant, historic ballroom has an 18-foot ceiling with industrial-inspired lighting hung from exposed rafters, and an absolutely gorgeous wood floor. Rentals include use of two moveable prep surfaces that can be used as a bar or center island.
  • Their generous BYO vendor policy is the best town, ensuring total creative freedom for your event. If you need a little guidance, they're happy to help match you with some of Portland's best vendors: a creative band of florists, caterers, event designers—even an artisan letterpress!
  • If the unique building reminds you of a turn-of-the-century shop, that's because it was. Built in 1912 and once home to a pharmacy, it's been lovingly restored and houses a community of retail businesses and nonprofits—including Solabee Flowers, a full-service floral studio!
