We chose the name eMbers to represent not only the rebirth to the abandoned warehouse we repurposed, but also our philosophy and practice of special events. The venue side of our space is designed for individuality, creativity, and anywhere your mind takes you. We work with you every step of the way to ensure the event in your mind’s eye is seen by all the guests on the special day. Our creative team can work with you on the details or if you have your own team, that’s fine as well!

Primarily used for wedding receptions, our venue also hosts corporate events, birthdays, class reunions, and holiday parties. We also play host to numerous community fundraisers and public shows.

Renting the VENUE includes the full use of the first floor main room including the Bridal Suite (Green Room), second floor landing and rooftop deck (wedding party only), premium venue chairs and six foot tables, event consultations, on-site coordinator and staff, integrated sound system (background music), event layout software, set up assistance, tear down, and clean up. Wedding and Reception rates are always full day rentals and includes consultations and design services.
