The bright and open floor plan is a versatile setting for your special occasion. The Lark is non-exclusive, allowing your choice of vendors to tailor the look and feel of the space to suit your vision. The Lark proudly supports the Jacksonville art community by showcasing local work. Art is rotated quarterly and is all for sale with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the artists.
