You can rent out ‘The Social’ for your event. This space definitely will not disappoint, as it can be converted to anything that your heart desires! The Social is a large room with beautiful wooden floors, with plenty of room for tables, buffets, and a dance floor. A white marble bar spreads the width of the back of the room, with windows allowing for beautiful and photogenic natural lighting. At the front of the room is a stage, which can be used for bands, presentations, and speeches. The room has astounding lighting, which can be changed at the drop of a hat to match a color scheme. The surround sound is easy to use and fills the room. 


The Social also has a Bridal suite (or green room) attached to allow for the hosts to take a moment for themselves, whether to get ready or take a deep breath. This room has a full shower and bathroom, a table with multiple chairs, two comfortable couches, and a mini fridge. This room is a private getaway, perfect for a couples’ first meal together after their wedding ceremony, or a place for a VIPs to put on a beautiful outfit for their gala. 


There are so many ways to set up The Social. The room can seat up to 375, with space for 400 as a reception style. Even if you wanted to host a concert, up to 500 people could attend. 


Another thing that makes this space so unique is that there is a grand entrance in to the room. A guest can take a stunning staircase or elevator up to a foyer with a floor to ceiling mirror and lovely floral displays. This space is incredible for greetings and guest books. 


So when that day comes around to host an event, we hope you will look into booking The Social for that event. It is a phenomenal space that will be able to accommodate all of your needs and wants. This event space is special. We know you will love The Social. Reach out to our events team and schedule a tour of The Social to see just how special it is.
