Downtown (Cincinnati, Ohio)
When you rent one of the four exceptional venue spaces at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), you are ensuring that your celebration space is as unique as you are. Surrounded by the lights and life of downtown Cincinnati, the modern building brings together art and the creative process in a beautifully dynamic way, and each venue will ensure that your celebration is one-of-a-kind. When you rent of the Contemporary Arts Center’s spaces, you may wish to take advantage of several complimentary offers. These include an in-house officiant, an in-house wedding coordinator, and private rooms for the bride and groom. There is also a private dance floor with an adjacent lounge. If children will be attending, there is a special area designed to keep them happy and active.
The CAC has multilevel rental packages available that allow for multiple spaces to be used for one event, but the rooms can also be rented separately. The first space at the CAC is Kaplan Hall, the expansive main lobby of the museum. It can accommodate 210 seated guests or up to 350 for cocktails. Lined with street-level glass walls, this space is the perfect place to see and be seen in downtown Cincinnati. If you are looking for a blank space that you can tailor to meet your creative dreams, then the Black Box Performance Theatre and Lower Lobby Lounge is the perfect space for you. It has high ceilings, a large projection screen, and lighting, sound, and video systems. The theatre is ideal for lively events for 200 guests, or elegant dinner parties for 150.
If you want to take your celebration to the next level, you might want to consider holding your event in the exhibition galleries. Several times a year, some of the most exciting artists agree to let the museum host events amongst their exhibits. Inquire about the next opening, and you and 250 seated guests could enjoy this interactive space. Finally, the Board Room and Urban Terrace are perfect for more intimate gatherings. The Board Room also has an adjacent urban terrace. Guests will love the stunning views of the downtown restaurant row, and arts and entertainment district.
