Event Spaces

The Century Ballroom

The Century Ballroom features elegant crystal chandeliers, as well as abundant natural light from the floor to ceiling glass walls and exquisitely designed retractable doors to the Outdoor Terrace. Use the entire space, or partition the room and choose Century North or Century South, depending on the size of the event. Whether hosting a wedding, tradeshow, family celebration or corporate event, the Century Ballroom provides true modern elegance.

Pre-Function Space

The Ballroom Pre-Function space features two built-in bars and a flexible, oversized LED wall display, lending to its functionality as both a pre-function room and a stand-alone event space. With comfortable lounge furniture throughout, and private seating to share a conversation or answer work emails, the Ballroom Pre-Function is ideal for cocktail receptions, coffee breaks and afternoon or evening refreshments.

Outdoor Terrace

Conveniently connected to both the Century Ballroom North and the Ballroom Pre-Function is our 8,000 square foot Outdoor Terrace. The space features an elegant stone bench around the perimeter and a custom-built bar with room to comfortably host up to 300 people for a cocktail reception or social gathering. A variety of tenting options are also available to ensure a seamless event, rain or shine.
