About The Hamilton Studio

Our building dates back the early-1900s, when it served as St. Joseph’s Catholic School’s Auditorium until the school closed in 1969. The interior space has been renovated since then, but many original features like the stage and hardwood floors have been preserved. Hamilton Studio is a Spokane gem, listed on the Spokane Register of Historic Places. Since the space was originally an auditorium, it is an extremely versatile venue. Whether you are looking for a premiere small performance space, large reception with food and dancing, or a small business meeting with audio and video, Hamilton Studio can accommodate up to 100 guests only minutes away from downtown. Typical events include: wedding receptions, corporate meetings, birthday parties, dances, concerts and community functions.

This is a terrific venue - An Eventective User

The Cantabile chapter of the Spokane Symphony Associates held an event for 80 people that featured student composers and musicians from Eastern Washington University and Gonzaga University with the goal of raising funds for the Spokane Symphony Orchestra. We offered light refreshments, non-alcoholic beverages, and wine. The intimacy of the space, the colorful stage lighting, the appropriate amplification of sound, the art on the walls, the bistro tables and chairs, and the warm hospitality of Don Hamilton, Lorna St. James, and TJ made our event very inviting and special. There is a small kitchen in which to prepare food and beverages and an upstairs room where performers can relax before going onstage. The central location in the city is very beneficial. We highly recommend this venue.

This place is AMAZING! - An Eventective User

We LOVED Hamilton Studio. It's such a beautiful, classy venue that adds an air of sophistication to any event. Don and Lorna were great and Don set up a 3 camera shoot for us that will be incredibly valuable. Great value for the price. We'll be back for sure.
