Our room rentals combine the best of a do-it-yourself party and a gorgeous venue. Grab some family and friends and put on a cool wedding, shower, or party of any kind.


We also promote local restaurants and caterers, so if there are some things you DON’T want to do yourself, we can provide a list of food and beverage service providers as well as florists, musicians and more. 

We have free high-speed wireless internet in most parts of the building and we’re within easy walking distance of several restaurants and lodging options.


The Pearson Auditorium (below) is equipped with a lighting system and a portable stage is available. The excellent acoustics make it a terrific place for both amateur and professional musicians to perform. A Steinway baby grand piano is available at no extra charge.


This auditorium can hold up to 80 for a sit-down meal, 120 with theater style seating and up to 200 when set up cocktail style with tables for hors d‘oeuvre and beverages.


AND, we have linens available!

The Lorenzen Board Room (below) is the perfect size for small meetings, brunches, employee training, depositions, and other events where an intimate setting is preferred. The space also hosts rotating exhibits and has a nice view of the river.
