  • We have wifi available.
  • We have 30 chairs, four 6-foot folding tables, and a projector and screen available to use while renting the space.
  • We do not have a full kitchen, so we are unable to accommodate any onsite cooking or full-course dinners, nor are we allowed to have food for sale in our space.
  • We do not offer a full sound system for bands. Penn Avenue has other places that are better suited to host bands, and we would be happy to connect you with them.
