Built in 1912, the Gale Mansion is an elegant and intimate setting for wedding ceremonies, receptions, corporate meetings, birthday parties, anniversaries, and other special events. Located in the heart of the exclusive Mansion District of Minneapolis, this historic home offers the best of both worlds with its antique furnishings and modern amenities, including an elevator, air conditioning, and heat. With space for up to 220 guests, this gorgeous property provides the perfect backdrop for a unique, sophisticated event.
As a full-service venue, the Gale Mansion guarantees exclusive bookings from noon until midnight. Wedding ceremonies can be held outside from May until early October, or as the weather permits. Both ceremonies and receptions can be held inside the mansion and/or the ballroom year-round. For your convenience, wait staff and bartenders will serve your guests and handle clean-up afterwards. Additionally, the following items are included in the rental cost: china, glassware, cutlery, napkins, and table linens. A valet service is also available. In-house event planners can assist you as needed in making vendor arrangements, creating a timeline, and managing day-of operations for a seamless celebration.
The Gale Mansion offers a wide variety of traditional menus and specialized cultural cuisine. We can accommodate special dietary needs and preferences with organic, vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, and gluten-free options. Our Executive Chef selects seasonal and artisanal food items whenever possible and, in doing so, supports local farmers. Our Pastry Chef creates one-of-a-kind desserts with the customer, main course, and season in mind. Our catering team strives to create unique menus for each and every event.
After an extensive renovation in 2010, the Gale Mansion now features a beautiful ballroom equipped with a full audio/stereo system, a grand piano, a dance floor, and a stage. The main floor of the mansion can accommodate up to 120 guests for a seated dinner or up to 225 guests for a cocktail reception. The ballroom seats up to 180 guests for dinner and is also ADA accessible.
