“WHAT IS THE PRIVATE PARTY SPACE LIKE?”
The upstairs music lounge includes the music hall and the upper tier patio space. You’ll have two private bathrooms, a full bar, and the third story balcony for all your party needs.
In this scenario, the street level bar and street level patio space would remain open to the public. A member of our door team would be stationed at the exterior stairwell to welcome your guests.
If you choose to rent the entire venue, we would close our business to the public for the day, which would give you access to our street level bar and patio also. Our street level bar is the perfect setting for a cocktail hour, games of pool, or even a juke-box fueled dance off!

“CAN I HAVE A DJ OR LIVE PERFORMER FOR MY EVENT?”
Absolutely! If you would like to book a DJ or a live performer for your event, we will charge you a sound engineer fee. This includes use of our PA system, and the engineer who will run it.
If you need help booking entertainment for your event, Old Growth Management can help hire, book, and manage all communication with the talent for your event for an additional fee.
