Mt. Lookout (Cincinnati, Ohio)
The Cincinnati Observatory is a stunning venue under the stars. It is surrounded with the wonder and beauty of our universe and is perfect for anyone wishing to have a smaller, more intimate gathering in an interesting and beautiful space steeped in history. The local treasure is the first public observatory in the western hemisphere. Since 1999, the Observatory has made it its mission to educate the public about astronomy. With their beautiful telescopes, knowledgeable staff, and stunning grounds, the Observatory has upheld that mission. In fact, the grounds see thousands of visitors every year, and hold numerous events.
Tucked away in a neighborhood near Ault Park, the Observatory is perfect for rehearsal dinners, small parties, or intimate weddings. When you hold your event at the Observatory, your rental includes several exciting features. Renters and guests have full access to both buildings for the duration of the event. Staff-led tours for your guests are also available if interested. Tables, high-top tables, and chairs are available for 50 seated guests, but the space can accommodate 70 guests for a cocktail style event. You also won't have to worry about set up and tear down as staff will take care of both. Finally, the rental includes a one-year membership to the Observatory.
