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.

Excellent Service and Responsive Staff
Our day was beautiful! The venue and catering staff were making a noticeable effort to give us the special celebration we envisioned, despite being handcuffed by COVID restrictions. The space was clean and we were able to decorate and customize it to our event. The food was excellent and they let us mix and match to create the menu we wanted. The staff was responsive and helpful through the whole experience, and earned every dollar spent, with their hustle, on the day of the event.Sent on 12/03/2020

Robber's Cave was the perfect venue for our wedding. Justin, the Venue Manager, was the most professional and helpful person I have ever worked with. He helped us achieve our dream wedding, and went above and beyond to ensure every little details was perfect. The venue itself is beautiful and fun, I really enjoyed the new bridal suit for pre-wedding activities. All of our guests had a wonderful time and commented how much they enjoyed the venue.

Perfect choice for a rehearsal dinner
Was very festive. It was accommodating for all of our ideas. They had all the equipment we needed to run a video of the bride and groom’s lives. The food from yes chef was delicious. The bar was efficient and friendly. This was a great value for our money. The cave tours were a great experience for the families of the bride and groom to bond.Sent on 06/01/2021
