Located only a short drive from downtown Lincoln, it is a convenient destination that is not far from a whole host of comfortable accommodations.
Facilities and Capacity
Beneath the ground of Lincoln run 5,600 square feet of sandstone tunnels that have played an important part in the town’s history. For many years, both lawful and unlawful gatherings took place at this underground location, and wall markings pay homage to this fact. Above ground, couples can add their own chapter to this site's long-running story by celebrating in one of the many venue sites. With so much choice available, to-be-weds can get creative and design the wedding of their dreams. For those who enjoy the great outdoors, the Dakota Theatre is a wonderful setting. Almost-newlyweds can tie the knot on its wooden stage as attendees watch from a grassy knoll. A large venue, it has a capacity for up to 400 guests. Inside, the James Room is an all-purpose venue that can welcome up to 220 people. Its open-plan design and raised ceilings create a sense of limitless space in which to toast to love. Attached to the James Room, the Scarborough Room is a light-filled and cozy space that features a modern bar for up to 110 attendees. Combining both the James Room and Scarborough Room, the lower level of Robber's Cave can seat 330 invitees. The Sandstone Room on the upper landing can accommodate smaller-sized parties and even offers an outdoor deck. This room would be an ideal place to enjoy a cocktail hour prior to the main reception or host a rehearsal dinner the night before the main event.
The management of Robber’s Cave offers couples an array of useful features to enhance the big-day experience. Their event coordination service includes everything needed to organize a party such as setup and cleanup. They can also provide access to rentals outside of what the venue offers. Food is provided by partners Yes Chef Catering, with a range of buffet options on offer. As an added perk to hosting your event at Robber's Cave, wedding parties are able to use the cave as a backdrop for photos. What's more, anyone who wants to explore and experience the history of the caves beneath them is welcome to enjoy an informative tour.

Hi Everyone, My name is Austin and I am the Events Director at Robbers Cave. I received my degree in Hospitality Management from UNL and have worked with Yes Chef since graduation. Working as a Catering Manager brought me to Robbers Cave providing amazing customer service to the guests that come through this historical place. Moving from Catering Manager to Events Director gives me a great understanding of your event and all the little things that go along with it. I look forward to working with you and creating an amazing event big or small.
