History
Factory 12 Event Loft is part of the Roviar building, which was established in 1912; it became known as The Shirt Factory as a workforce for primarily female garment workers. In 1944, this workforce incorporated a beauty salon into its facilities, making it the first industrial business in the United States to have done so. By the 60s and 70s, this venue became a division of Arthur Jay Co. Under the new parent company, they began creating sportswear and also became one of the first places in the entire world to play music over a loudspeaker during working hours.

    Beautiful Industrial Venue for your Perfect Wedding!

    Factory 12 Event Loft was the perfect venue for our wedding reception! It is a beautiful industrial venue that ticks all the boxes. The staff were on top of everything we could possibly need from meeting our vendors day of, taking care of the guests, and making sure the night ran smoothly. They offer bar and food services as well making it a one stop shop and hassle free. We absolutely loved having our wedding here!
