They have an open vendor policy, so you can customize your celebration how you wish. The building is close to the Street Car, which allows for easy access to P&L and the River Market.

The wall in the Havana Room is a beautiful, custom-made piece that gives the place a fun Cuban flair. With inspiration from a collection of photos, Whiskey Design created a vinyl print that gives the room its spirited atmosphere.

This quaint lounge works well as a bridal suite and is a great space for a cozy and comfy gathering.
