Private & Social Event Rentals


Social Events

Whether you’re looking for a local venue to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, graduation or other special milestone, The Clayton Center offers a world of possibility. The atrium-like Lobby Gallery is the perfect setting for mingling and dancing for up to 350 people. Four overhead Terraces overlook the main floor of the Lobby Gallery, giving the event vertical appeal and lots of creative flexibility for decor and event design.

The Clayton Center has two catering kitchenettes for client/caterer use. The larger features a commercial refrigerator and an ice machine, and both have sinks and ample counter space. There also are no catering restrictions at The Clayton Center – you may use any caterer you choose.

My guests and I had a blast! Thank you so much for the help in planning a wonderful experience for my son.
