About The Steam Plant

Welcome to The Steam Plant, downtown Dayton's "newest" event venue! The former power generating plant has undergone a careful two 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 on the Lower Level is another unique area (think wine cellar…) 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 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

    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.

    I’m so happy we decided to have our reception at the Steam Plant! It was a gorgeous venue and we were so pleased with the way it turned out for our big day! Our guests raved about the building and how it had been renovated. We used the bridal suite for hair and makeup which was beautiful and convenient- lots of great natural light and comfortable. I love that we were able to bring in our own caterer and alcohol- saved us a ton of money and we were able to get exactly what we wanted. Lisa is fantastic and is easy to work with. Highly recommend this new venue!

    The Steam Plant was the perfect place to host our wedding in Dayton. I can't say enough about the Bridal Suite - it is the best place to get ready; they have everything you need and plenty of space for the bride and her gang to get ready! The venue is gorgeous and really stands on its own as a feature and needs very little decoration; everyone of our guests talked about how gorgeous it was. The natural lighting was fantastic as well. Also - the open bar gave my dad the opportunity to share his bourbon collection and it was just an added bonus to a perfect evening. They were so flexible as well with all of our requests and with our guests!
