Located blocks from the Willamette River and a 5 minute walk from the University of Oregon and Downtown, our event space features a central location and tasteful design. The bright windows and clean lines of our event space, as well as the kitschy yet sophisticated aesthetic of the cafe/bar, come together to create a unique beautiful environment. The Barn Light is a full service bar, which can facilitate custom beverage offerings for events. We can comfortably seat up to 30 people or up to 45 for standing room with tables. For larger parties the entire facility (event space and café/bar) can be rented, which increases capacity to 85 persons. Upon request we can provide a vendor list and create customized decor.
