Event Spaces to Suit All Needs

Summit Room

Ample windows provide natural light and splendid views of Summit Avenue, the downtown skyline, and the Mississippi River Valley. Original wood paneling, an ornate plaster ceiling, and the wood-burning fireplace create a warm, inviting atmosphere.


This light-filled space was originally a canopied open terrace. Now enclosed in order to be enjoyed year-round, the terrace features large windows overlooking downtown. It is often used in conjunction with the Summit Room.
