About this space

Mess Hall is the only venue in the city where an open kitchen engages partygoers for a fully interactive culinary experience. Our Great Room, adorned with reclaimed wood shelves and sliding barn doors, is a blank canvas that is ideal for weddings, private parties, networking events, book signings, filmings, pop-up restaurants, and everything in between. The adjacent Tile Room is available for overflow seating or a satellite bar.

Mess Hall also offers the outdoor space that could be hired as an add-on to the indoor space. Our partially-enclosed Garage Bay features exposed brick and glow with twinkle lights. It offers an open-air feeling any time of year and boasts an optional stage for live entertainment. Every event is uniquely memorable and colored by your imagination. Our team brings 20+ years of experience to help bring your concept to life.
