The new owners, Andrea & Daniel Vallencourt, purchased the historic space in 2017 and immediately began renovations. They turned this 5,000 sq ft space into a state of the art beautiful venue with the ability to comfortably hold 180 seated guests in the main banquet space with a maximum capacity of 200 for indoor receptions. Cocktail mixers for other events can hold up to 300 utilizing both the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Upon arriving at the front lobby you are greeted with a fresh and clean modern look that feels upscale with marble accents and beautiful leading lines.
