The Lake Erie Building (also known as the Screw Factory) has a large, non-traditional space that makes a memorable venue for wedding receptions and ceremonies, showers, family reunions, birthday and anniversary parties, B'nai Mitzvah and B'not Mitzvah, fundraising events, meetings, conventions, and seminars. With space for hundreds of guests, it is easily one of the largest event spaces in the Lakewood and Cleveland, Ohio area. The industrial loft warehouse space with 14ft ceilings and tall windows is a wonderfully-raw and neutral place that can be personalized by our event clients. Though our building's core business is property management and metal wire processing, we are happy to be able to share this unique and inspiring space with our community by request.
The cost for private function use of our main space, the Lake Erie Room, is $6500* plus sales tax. Rates for select holiday dates will be two times the regular rate.
These rates include set-up of our tables (standard folding round, rectangular, and cocktail ) and chairs (we have old industrial folding chairs as well as natural wood Chiavari chairs), basic tablecloths, staff and security, and time to set-up décor and tear-down.
Appointments to tour the building can usually be made Monday-Friday between 8am-2pm. Please email Hannah@LakeErieBuilding.com or call 216 308 3265 to make an appointment or request further information.
Our rentals at the current rate include:
-access to the space for nearly a week, from Wednesday through Monday, so there is no rush to set-up or tear-down, and you'll know the room is ready for your event
-Wi-Fi in the event space
-use and set-up of all of our furniture & equipment (chiavari chairs, chandeliers, cocktail & regular tables, etc)
-staff and security during your event to direct guests, maintain the building, and assist your vendors
-basic solid polyester floor-length table linens and napkins
-up to 330lbs of bagged ice
-the ability to choose your own caterer and furnish your own alcohol
-up to 2 in-person sessions to help you plan for décor and event logistics
We recommend a limit of up to 450 guests in our Lake Erie Room on the 2nd floor (though much smaller events fit really nicely, too). Most of our events have between 100-200 guests and we do allow ceremonies and receptions. Portable neutral-color drapes are available to divide and reveal our space as you wish
Please contact us for details on larger and open-to-the-public events.
