Our 3 bay banquet hall is perfect for both large and small gathers with closing bay walls that can separate the hall into 3 separate rooms. Ideal for wedding receptions, quinceñeras, larger showers, anniversaries, banquets, and much more! 

Our banquet hall incorporates the spaciousness of contemporary architecture with the natural beauty of the outdoors. Gorgeous wooden floors provide enough room for your guests to dance the night away! Tall windows and high ceilings let in natural light and allow expansive views of native trees and plants that create a perfect setting for photography. Exterior doors provide easy access for an indoor/outdoor event, and a landscaped terrace makes an ideal backdrop for picture taking, after-dinner toasts or exchanging vows.

The banquet suite is composed of three flexible-design rooms — Alder, Birch and Cedar. Each room comfortably seats 96 banquet style, perfect for smaller social events. For larger gatherings and receptions, we recommend combining two rooms or renting the full banquet hall.
