About The Steam Plant

Welcome to The Steam Plant, downtown Dayton’s “newest” event venue! The former power generating plant has undergone a careful three year renovation preserving the historical integrity of the building while adding modern amenities for today’s discerning couple.

The Grand Hall is the primary event space offering nearly 6000 square feet to create a memorable event! Some of the many architectural features of The Grand Hall include floor to ceiling arched windows, exposed brick and beams, uplit columns, polished concrete floors, operational ceiling fans, and the show piece of the room, a two-story custom built-in bar. Off the bar area is The Cigar Patio, a lovely outdoor courtyard perfect for a quaint ceremony, cocktails, a place for the guys to take a cigar break or breath of fresh air. Below the Grand Hall is the lower level former Boiler Room, another unique area useable for a dance club, after party, an intimate ceremony, event or reception space.

One of the highlights of The Steam Plant is The Bridal Suite, a spacious retreat designed with brides in mind. The suite offers plenty of room for brides and their squad to spread out and prepare for the big day! A salon style sink and mirrors for hair and make-up preparation, soft furniture and table seating, TV, bar area and plenty of natural light for photographers to capture the scene. .Off the suite is another one-of-a-kind feature unique to The Steam Plant, a 58-foot Catwalk overlooking The Grand Hall. Imagine a bouquet toss, toast or dramatic entry, the possibilities are endless! The Steam Plant also has a second getting ready space for grommsmen or bridal parties, The Locker Room. Located in the lower level, away from the bridal suite, a unique and quaint space for wedding day preparations.

The Steam Plant also offers a beautifully landscaped Outdoor Space which is a true urban oasis perfect for a ceremony, reception or moonlit soiree.

Tours are by appointment only 937-985-0617 or steamplantdayton@gmail.com

    Amazing Experience!

    Lisa and the Steam Plant team were amazing to work with. They were flexible and helped make our day exactly how we pictured it! They were incredible to work with! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and I love how versatile the space is. I've been to other weddings there and each event looks and feels unique - just like the couple! We couldn't have been happier with how our wedding turned out. Also, the bridal space was an incredible addition and I'm so happy we were able to get ready there the morning of the wedding! All around, we had an amazing experience and could not recommend the venue more!

    Best Venue in Dayton!

    The Steam Plant is by far the BEST venue in Dayton. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but Lisa is very professional and easy to work with. The bridal suite is one of a kind and provided plenty of room for all of my bridal party and hair/makeup artists. Our guests are still talking about how unique and beautiful our wedding venue was. Would recommend to anyone!

    Wonderful venue, helpful & professional staff

    We had a lovely experience here! The caterer and the venue and everybody worked so well together. They worked hard to pull off a beautiful wedding for us. It's a beautiful industrial venue unlike anything else we saw, and it was an excellent value for the cost.
