Imagine...glittering city lights and showstopping architecture, that features a mix of metropolitan sophistication and a bait of edge. A location that is tucked away like a beautiful secret amid the dynamic downtown energy. As you enter the alley, you are greeted by the sounds of a street musician. Translucent doors swing open, and doormen usher you into the soaring glass-walled grand entrance and greet you with a glass of bubbly. An elevator operator takes you to the designated floor, where you are met by greeters who welcome and unwrap you, checking coats and sweeping you toward the main event.

Doors open. You stop. Your breath catches, and your heart beats faster. This is the moment when you are truly blown away by everything that is SKY Armory.

Amazing ambience. Undeniable style. Complete customization. Extraordinary food and beverages. Impeccable service. A simple planning process. Endless amenities. True "wow" factor... You can expect all of this when you choose to party in the SKY.

Design:
The original building SKY is housed in, the Betts, was built around 1878 and is part of the South Salina Street Downtown Historic District. To create a connection with the vibrant Armory Square neighborhood, a modern glass atrium was added to the Clinton Street side of the building for the 2014 opening of SKY Armory. Inside the loft-style ballrooms, original brick walls and exposed wood and metal beams and rafters are present. The atrium staircase features reclaimed wood. The portable bars on both the second and third floors were handcrafted by a local woodworker.
