That depends on the type of event you’re hosting. There’s enough space for 100-ish folks to mingle, but if everyone needs a seat, it’s best to keep the headcount to about 60.
The Bistro has a mix of built-in seating and furniture that can be moved around. You’ll have access to:
You sure can. Feel free to configure the free-standing furniture in any way that makes sense for your event. We just ask that when your event is over, you leave the room the way you found it.
Yes, kind of. While the kitchen doesn’t have an oven or stove, it does have three refrigerators, two dishwashers, one small microwave and plenty of counter space.
If your event includes a presentation, you’re welcome to use our equipment. Hook up your laptop to our dual projector, and use our speakers to play music. Bring your own microphone for speaking events or karaoke showdowns, and feel free to come by prior to your event for a quick AV training session.
Yep. You can bring food in from wherever you like. If you hire a catering service, just be sure they’re aware of our kitchen setup.
Sure thing. All organizations are allowed to bring in their own purchased alcohol.
The Bistro carries a $500 charge for a half-day, or $1000 for a full day. We understand that each event has different needs, and we're happy to chat about the fees with you. Just fill out our quick rental form and we'll be in touch.
We don’t provide an event planner, but we’re happy to answer any questions about the space and assist in booking the Bistro.
You are responsible for taking all trash out to the dumpster and leaving the space as you found it. You’ll find cleaning supplies in the kitchen if you need to wipe up any spills.

We're located just off Hermitage Avenue in downtown Nashville's SoBro district. The yellow section is the best place to turn onto Lea Avenue from Hermitage.
