Great Things Happen Here

A space can hold an event, or a space can inspire an event. FAR brings people together in a modern, customizable venue to spark conversation and new ways of thinking — primarily through its contemporary arts programming, and also by renting the space for weddings and private events.

Four functional spaces are joined by an open atrium, bar, and kitchenette. Rent spaces together or separately to customize your event.
