Is your facility able to accommodate 300 guests?
Yes. And we can accommodate 50 guests or 500 guests also. With over 12,000 square feet of flexible and well connected space, we are able to host your event in as intimate or as spectacular a space as you can imagine.
I'm looking for something outdoors. Do you have space like that?
Yes. Do you envision a Garden or Art Gallery Setting with lush green plants, filtered sunlight and access to outdoor verandas and a neighborhood garden? Do you want to hear the birds but avoid the risk of unpredictable weather? We are your venue.
We are searching for a "unique venue" with personality and "knock their socks off" visual appeal? Can you provide that?
Yes. Do you desire 21 foot ceilings over a spectacular Grand Ballroom Dance Floor and a Professional Stage? Add candle light, antique mirrors and period chandeliers to add just the right backdrop of elegance. Add your favorite music, food and drinks and you have created "An Event to Remember"!
Does a more intimate Piano Bar, with beautiful colorful walls featuring local art and little alcoves for quiet conversation sound more in tune? Shall we add space for dancing and entertaining on our famous Piano Stage? Food? Table Seating? Premium Bar? You've got it in The Club!
Do you have a lot of rules or could we decorate to make this event "truly" ours?
Yes. To the last question. Fortunately, the answer is no to the first! We do allow some flexibility in set-up and host supplied decorations. We want to assist you in making your visions become a reality. We can suggest event planners, florists, photographers, musicians and professional decorators who will "really listen" to your ideas.
We would like to host an ethnic event. Can we bring in outside caterers?
Yes, absolutely! At The Fine Arts, we know how important food is to all cultures. We welcome your outside caterer and access to our complete kitchen can be obtained at a nominal fee to make set up, warming and serving easier.
We do provide a full service catering menu with an excellent array of food options. Should you choose "full service" you can still add Mama's Potato Salad and Uncle Ivan's Antipasto to your feast.
