    Up to 250 for a cocktail style reception with limited furniture; 160 for a seated dinner with a dance floor. Our outdoor courtyard can be tented through a third party vendor to make room for an additional 100 guests pending weather. We cannot remove snow in order to accommodate tent set-up.

    Food & Beverage

    We allow outside caterers, and all of our preferred vendors are familiar with our rules, so why not start there? We are open to all caterers, including food trucks and restaurant drop-off, but every vendor must carry a certificate of insurance (COI). We require general liability insurance in the amount of $1M per occurrence and $1M aggregate. It can be purchased here. 450 Union, Inc. must be listed as Additionally Insured. If you are serving alcohol the policy must include host liquor liability.

    We will also allow you to supply your own bar at the Green Building, but you must hire a bonafide staffing agency to provide service. We require (1) bartender per 40 guests. We highly recommend the staffing agencies found on our preferred vendor list.


    We provide one venue manager and one host for the duration of your event. Coat check attendants may be arranged through the venue for an additional hourly rate.
