About Temple for Performing Arts

The Temple for Performing Arts is home to a charming collection of event spaces within the building’s 4th floor. Managed by the enthusiastic team at Catering DSM, the Grand Hall and Recital Hall come with an impressive list of amenities: two hospitality suites, an LED light package, staging and dance floors, mahogany Chiavari chairs, and so much more. Custom floor plans, personalized event coordination, and professional event staff are what set The Temple apart. The spacious Grand Hall will accommodate up to 300 guests for a plated meal, depending on head table or staging needs. Theater style seating and cocktail receptions in the Grand Hall allow for 450 guests or more. The Recital Hall is 1,200 sq. ft., and seats 200 people theater style, or 70 people for a seated dinner. This room is the ideal size for smaller gatherings, or as a break away room in conjunction with the Grand Hall. The Recital Hall features three, large stained glass windows, trompe l'oeil stone painting and a beautiful hardwood floor.
