The Great Hall

The Great Hall encompasses the building's open spaces, from the sweeping Rotunda to the columned corridors. Large terraces off the Great Hall, furnished with garden benches and coffee tables, are ideal for warm weather gatherings.

The Great Hall is the perfect setting for special dinner parties, cocktail receptions, wedding ceremonies and receptions, and dances.

The Great Hall second level can accommodate 320 for a sit-down dinner, and 400 for a reception. It also has an intimate feeling that makes dinner parties of 50 to 75 feel right at home. By combining the second and third levels, up to 450 can be seated for dinner while up to 2,000 can be accommodated for receptions.

The Great Hall is available for rental between 6 p.m. and midnight when the building is closed to the public.
