TheHall is more than an open space, it is a flexible space that provides event organizers with a modern setting and state-of-the-art conveniences to help them bring events to life

A dramatic double stairwell leads guests to TheHall's lower lobby, which offers soaring views
of the upper level and can be used for receptions, registration or pre-event functions. Once guests come through the lower lobby, they enter into TheHall, a sprawling 5,000-square-foot event space that boasts high ceilings, a wireless audio system, wall-mounted plasma TVs and drop-down projection screens.
