Unconventional spaces

Nestled in Buffalo’s theater district, Babeville prides itself on being “not just one venue, but many.” This 19th century Gothic Revival-style church has been converted into an expansive open-floor hall with balcony seating and an intimate basement bar. Both spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art sound systems, opening the door for a wide range of events.

Buffalo Riverworks is a venue with a little bit of everything. This eclectic art, entertainment and concert site features both indoor and outdoor event spaces. Its 60,000 square foot main building includes four bars, a restaurant, a concessions area, an axe-throwing facility and the world’s first permanent flat track roller derby path. Outside, you’ll find an Urban Air ropes course, four ziplines, an amusement park and a brewery retrofitted into a grain silo.

Sheas Theatre

Venues with charm

In Buffalo, you’ll also discover sites with breathtaking historical charm. Originally built in 1920, Shea’s Seneca Banquets and Events has been transformed into a multi-use space. This facility includes a stunning ballroom with thirty-five-foot gilded ceilings, an outdoor patio area, a contemporary seating room and a concession counter turned intimate bar space. Shea’s Seneca also offers complimentary audio and video technology, Wi-Fi and more.

If historical charm piques your interest, The Ellicott Square Building was once the largest office building in the world. This ornate Italian-Renaissance-style structure dates to 1896 and features a spacious central court lobby complete with a glass roof and rare marble tile floors. The Ellicott Square Building can accommodate sit-down dinners, cocktail parties and more in this fully customizable space.

Settings that wow

Looking for a venue that will wow? If so, Buffalo delivers. Seneca One is a 40-story multi-use space that offers top-floor meeting options with 360-degree views of the city. Beyond this unmatched sight, Seneca One also features a 250-seat theater and breakout rooms of various sizes.

Complete with floor to ceiling windows, outdoor patios and elaborate masonry, The Powerhouse is a premier event space. Originally established in 1917 as a color plant, The Powerhouse stays true to its industrial roots. This 22,000 square foot venue has been fully reimagined to serve as a sports, entertainment and commercial complex.

Lined with classic columns, elegant windows and stunning 40-foot ceilings, The Admiral Room once served as the headquarters for Marine Midland Trust Bank. This unique setting features various amenities, including remote-controlled zoned sound, changeable up lights, a rear projector screen and more.
