New Upstairs Venue Expansion

Quakertown, PA – McCoole’s Arts & Events Place officially opened The Gallery, a new upstairs catering and event venue, on December 6. Making use of empty space on the same floor as the building’s black box theatre, this new room accommodates a sit down dinner for 40 – 45 people, or 100 people for a cocktail party or mixer. The Gallery will be served by the same in-house kitchen as the other two venues and has its own bar.

“We saw a need in the community for more entertaining venues and the space was already there,” according to Jan Hench, owner of McCoole’s Arts & Events Place. “We realized opening The Gallery would help meet the demand.” The Gallery gets its name from its appearance; with large windows that flood the room with light during the day, it appears like an art museum or art studio. Hence the name “The Gallery.”

The Gallery makes for the third event space available in the Arts and Events Place, joining the Cobblestone Parlor and Celestial Salon on the first floor. The Cobblestone Parlor can accommodate 45 for a sit down dinner, 55 for a cocktail party; the Celestial Salon accommodates 60 for a sit down dinner, 75 for a cocktail party. The two downstairs venues can be opened up to one space accommodating 90 – 130 attendees with or without a dance floor.

McCoole’s Arts & Events Place provides a large variety of services including, but not limited to: weddings, receptions, business meetings, seminars, banquets, catering, private parties, theater, art classes, concerts, shows, special events, beer festivals, a brewery and wine tastings.

“We’re now equipped to hold three events simultaneously,” added Hench. “Or a conference could use all three spaces. We offer room for three breakout sessions with the ability to eat in all three rooms. Or there could be two breakout sessions with food served in just one room. We offer quite a few options along with our 185 seat theater where all attendees can gather,” said Hench.

To reserve any of the rooms in the McCoole’s Arts & Events Place, please call 215-538-1779. Visit our Photo Gallery to see photos of this new venue.
