Rooms include one large atrium to accommodate seated events up to 120 and receptions as large as 300; four private dining rooms to accommodate groups of 10-60; and a private penthouse with soaring river views for a truly exceptional event. Let the culinary team led by award-winning Chef Michael Paley, prepare a menu featuring their signature Tuscan food, rich with local flavors.
I'll be honest, I had some issues at first. They had an event coordinator who eventually was fired because she wouldn't respond to emails, and we had found out she never even placed our deposit (she didn't steal the money, but didn't file the paperwork with the card numbers). After just one complaint they handed us over to Megan Brier. We really enjoyed Megan! She was thorough and in constant contact with us. We never even had to speak with the vendors the day of the wedding! The museum is beautiful, and is surprisingly cheap. I've known many friends to spend twice the amount we did to rent ballrooms. We had the entire Atrium, and an adjoining room for $600 plus food costs.
We had our bachelorette party here, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The venue is fun, funky, and chic -- all of which made for a fabulous evening!
21C was fanstatic. Our guests loved the contemporary art that is all over the hotel, and the great beds and flat screen TV's. Proof at 21C did our morning-after brunch in the gallery - perfect!
