Ruby is a gem of an event space.

But, we'll never tell you why we call her Ruby.

Beautiful in her simplicity, and yet modern for her age. Flirty but deadly-serious, just like your favorite little black dress. Ruby is a vintage space that’s been renovated with a timeless classiness specifically for social gatherings. Indoor and outdoor spaces.  Excellent for weddings or other events.

A Brief Tour

Ruby's grounds are arranged like a hub and spoke, with Brash Hall in the center and the Treehouse and Park Courtyards, Ruby Room, galley catering area, and front entry surrounding this main space. To appreciate how well these areas work together, you'll need to visit Ruby in person. Ruby's capacity depends upon many variables, but generally the maximum capacity of Brash Hall is 140 for a seated dinner, 120 for a seated dinner (with dance floor), and 200 for a ceremony/ concert. Maximum capacity at Ruby is 200 for a reception. For  events greater than 200, please visit Clementine Hall.

Brash Hall

Vaulted wood ceiling and plaster walls defines the Hall that is both historic yet contemporary, expansive yet intimate. Brash is surrounded by doors that access the courtyards and the park beyond and fill the space with natural light.

Treehouse Courtyard at Ruby

The Treehouse

Elevated and enclosed by the surrounding trees, the Treehouse Courtyard greets guests when they enter. Views of Dragon Park and the facade and its towering 15-foot doors surround.  Covered for sun and rain and walled in winter for year around use.

Park Courtyard

Well, because it's surrounded by the park on all sides. Lit in a perfectly dappled sort of way that draws guests outside.  A frequent location for food stations, bars and food trucks. Buffered by maples and tall grasses.

Park Courtyard at Ruby

Ruby Room

Our dressing room/ green room, the Ruby Room opens to the Park Courtyard and the garden pathway which leads to the front entrance. Intimate and refined. Ensuite bathroom.

Ruby Room


A stunningly modern entry it is, clad in rich red teak. Two seating alcoves store coats in the winter and are often decorated in a manner similar to a store window. Accesses four private bathrooms.

Clementine Hall

Clementine Hall, like Ruby, was designed by Dragon Park and has the same attention to architectural detail and building systems. Clementine is roughly twice the size and capacity of Ruby and is a historic brick design.  Clementine is in the burgeoning LOTTE District within the Sylvan Park neighborhood and faces Richland Park. These are some recent images at Clementine.
