The Public Works is a fashionable multi-use space open to weddings in Portland, Maine’s emergent West Bayside neighborhood. An adaptable location, it is suited to events of all proportions, imbuing each with a sense of class and style. The Public Works is ideal for couples with a discerning eye, who wish to wed in a venue brimming with character.

Facilities and Capacity

The West Bayside is a rapidly developing neighborhood whose roots are still manifest on the red-brick facades of its buildings. Emblematic of this tale, The Public Works exudes a sense of industrial chic, combined with a modern, minimalistic design aesthetic. Its bare rafters, ventilation ducts, and exposed brick-work are part of the renovation, which is hip and tasteful. More than simply stylish, The Public Works is a spacious offering that can accommodate a large wedding party of up to 225 well-wishers. It is an adaptable setting that can be configured as needed, and its refined color palette permits a range of decor options limited only by imagination. The room is gracefully lit from above by fashionable light fixtures which create an ambiance of intimacy. Outside, a welcoming patio extends the breadth of your party and can be used as a food truck area for your catering. There are ample furniture rentals available to perfectly complement the space’s interior, including chairs and tables. Nearby guests will find parking, available for part of wedding packages, and the venue is wheelchair accessible. The Public Works is a pet-friendly venue and welcomes your canine well-wishers.
