Yoga Practice, Creative Classes, Dinners, Meetings, Parties, Team Building, Friend Craft Nights, You Name It!

Book a private event at Make Room, in the lower level of the Dakota Business College building built in 1885.  Original checkerboard concrete floors are a striking feature of the unique space.  Gallery lighting highlights rotating local art exhibits adorning the walls surrounding the space.  A distinctly secretive, underground feeling is lightened by large north facing windows that look out into the private stairwell.  A bathroom and utility sink are available for use, as well as a variety of seating arrangements and decor.  

Please email to arrange a booking.  Consult calendar for possible opening in the event schedule.  Pricing may vary per hour.  Trades and Barters welcome.
