The gallery and venue at Machines with Magnets is a unique and comfortable multipurpose space that can accommodate many different types of events including wedding ceremonies and receptions, showers, brand activations, birthday and other special occasion parties, team meetings, holiday and corporate parties, conference kick-off events, fundraisers, and more. Our minimal, midcentury modern-inspired design features a mix of custom and vintage furniture and adds character to any event. As of fall 2019, the event space now boasts freshly refinished hardwood floors, a private and completely refurbished back patio area with comfortable seating and tables, and even more midcentury Scandinavian design elements both indoors and out. ?

The second room is a flexible exhibition space that hosts rotating gallery shows, and can be used as a green room, lounge, or for dinner, dancing, breakout sessions, auctions, exhibits, and much more.
