photo Stacey Keck
We love to find unique & new types of venues everywhere we go. Whether you’re hosting a small gathering over dinner or going all-out and setting off an all-night dance party, we’ve put together the best warehouses, lofts, studios, canneries, and factories where getting your people together is a must. With massive windows, soaring ceiling heights, cement floors, and tons and tons of exposed brick, these party spots are industrial gold.
 
From boutique salt purveyors in Portland to an old macaroni factory in Chicago, there’s really something for everyone and a bit of a story to be told about each of these wildly different American venues.
