Originally built in the 1920s, The Lowlands is an industrial venue that has been thoughtfully restored and updated to meet the needs of modern events. The main hall features soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls, and large windows that flood the space with natural light.

In addition to the main hall, The Lowlands also features an outdoor courtyard that is ideal for cocktail hours, ceremonies, and other outdoor events. With its charming brick walls, lush greenery, and twinkling string lights, the courtyard provides a romantic and intimate setting for your event.

Additionally, guests may have the chance to enjoy live music and chef collaborations during special events hosted at The Ladyslipper Lounge.
