Our 3,000-square-foot greenhouse can comfortably accommodate upwards of 250 guests seated banquet style. The greenhouse is structurally tied into an adjoining 2,000-square-foot barn, which serves as a multi-use event space with a bar and five bathrooms, as well as the lobby for The Greenhouses hotel—with white walls, modern sconces, and wood floors.
Behind the greenhouse, an open-air, walled patio is an additional space for wedding proceedings—ceremony, cocktail hour, what have you. The stone patio connects to The Greenhouses Kitchen restaurant, which is open to hotel guests and the public Thursday through Sunday. The Greenhouses Kitchen, built on the site of a former cement block warehouse, serves up a rotating menu of farm-fresh seasonal fare.
