Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding at the Punch Bowl Social with as many as 1,000 guests. The 360 Bar in this venue features the best of industrial decor mixed with trendy accent pieces for a fabulously modern and wide-open event space. This circular bar sits in the middle of the room surrounded by tufted teal bar chairs. The high ceilings reveal exposed ductwork, and an antler chandelier hangs over the bar. The Mezzanine features a teal blue accent wall and a well-lit bar. The space is littered with high-top tables where guests could munch on hors d’oeuvres and mingle. The Holiday Lodge is a cozy lounge space with a fireplace that is actually an image on a television set, a library of books that are actually wallpaper, and a mounted deer head that is actually white plastic. A room of modern fun, this space also features comfortable black furniture and red plaid carpeting. The Diner is another grand space, and perhaps the one with the most seating suitable for a reception. There are tables and booths in this space, which is lit by fun overhead fixtures and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Additionally, couples will find an arcade with a red couch under bright red writing that reads “I love you so much,” perfect for photo opportunities. Private karaoke spaces and lounges in the area of the bowling lanes also exist.
