The answers to your questions

We know you have questions, and we want to answer them. If you don’t see the answer to your question here, or to schedule a tour, call Scott Muñoz or Michael Valentine at (414) 272-1451.

Can we use our own caterer?

Yes! 1451 Renaissance Place welcomes any professional, licensed and insured caterers. We can book the caterer for you, as well as entertainers, decorations, audio-visual technicians, valet services and more. So there is just one invoice for all services.

What are your rates?

While it is an exclusive location, 1451 Renaissance Place can be surprisingly affordable. It all depends on the size of your event, the type, the day of week, the amenities you choose, and many other factors. Your event specialist will work with you to plan an event that fits your budget.

Do you offer free parking?

Yes! Free, on-site, off-street parking can accommodate approximately 130 vehicles during evenings and weekends. Daytime parking for approximately 90 cars is available. Street parking is also available. For large events, we can make arrangements for shuttles from nearby lots or for valet parking services.

Do you have any special rates or promotions?

Special rates are available for multiple use contracts, daytime and weekday events, short notice availabilities and others. Occasionally, there may be special promotions or incentives for you to consider. Ask your event specialist for details.

Are you wheelchair accessible?

Though it is almost 100 years old, 1451 Renaissance Place has been renovated to accommodate guests with disabilities. The building has an elevator that picks guests up at sidewalk level and provides access to the foyer and ballroom levels. Be sure to let your event specialist know if you or your guests have any specific needs that we can accommodate.

How many people can you accommodate?

A typical event at 1451 Renaissance Place hosts between 150 and 250 people, though we have hosted events for groups as small as 2 and as large as 600.

We provide seating for up to 300, so larger groups would require renting additional seating. Events larger than 400 should be approved by the event specialist to ensure it can be executed to everyone’s satisfaction.

What type of staff will be in attendance during my event?

Our full-service professional staff will be with you throughout your event to see to the needs of you and your guests. Your event specialist will see to the smooth operation of your event. Other staff members include a greeter, coat check, beverage servers, parking director, supervisory and support staff, as needed.

When can I see 1451 Renaissance Place in person?

We take great pride in sharing this distinctive venue, and we encourage you to schedule an appointment to see us. We look forward to showing you around and sharing some ideas to help you meet your goals.

Regular office hours are 9:00am to 5:00pm weekdays. If that doesn’t accommodate your schedule, lunchtime, evening and weekend appointments can be arranged.

We do not schedule tours or appointments during events, so please call before coming to be sure someone is available.
