Past clients have loved the look and overall atmosphere of Studio324 for their events which have ranged from wedding ceremonies and receptions to office holiday parties and day-long retreats. There are plenty of hotel type event spaces in Rochester but Studio324 offers something truly unique and intimate. Located on Broadway in one of the city’s oldest existing buildings, the space can be designed and customized to fit your event’s needs through personal tours and using our online software.
Studio324 is available for six consecutive hours (not to exceed 11pm) for $700, Thursday-Saturdays. We offer a discounted rate of $550 for events Sunday-Wednesdays. Additional hours can be added along with tables, chairs, linens, and audio/visual equipment to suit your needs and the atmosphere you desire for your event!
How many people can Studio324 hold?
Up to 106, depending on your needs and the layout. For instance, if you use 60″ round tables, the space can comfortably host 80 people. More of a barn style setup using 8′ tables end to end can allow more guests. A cocktail setup reduces the amount of space taken up by tables and more room for guests.
What caterer can we use in your space?
We currently have no need to limit what caterers you hire to serve in the studio, so it’s open to who you’d like. A few caterers who have done a number of events in the studio and do a fantastic job are Catering By Design , Canadian Honker , Grand Rounds Brew Pub and Chef Johnny Mango .
What do we do for tables and chairs?
We have a selection of tables and chairs available for rent or you can bring in items from an outside vendor. We have access to ten 60″ round tables, four 8′ tables, 100 black banquet chairs, six hightop cocktail tables, black linens for tables, a projector and screen, and a PA system. Included in the rental fee is a selection of lounge furniture and stage sections if needed. For an additional fee, we can also supply a coat check run by our assistants. Contact us for more details and rates for the above items.
Can we bring in a dj or band?
You certainly may! John Boss’ Apollo Music Group has an amazing sound system that suits the atmosphere and size of the studio perfectly! If you’re not needing a DJ to keep your night moving, we do have four speakers mounted in the ceiling and a receiver where you can plug in your iPod or laptop. It works great for ambient music played during dinner and social hours.
Is parking convenient by your space downtown?
We have ample parking all within a block of Studio324. There’s a parking lot behind our row of buildings accessed off of 3rd St. South, there’s street parking across the street, and there’s also a parking ramp off 3rd St. South, behind Holiday Inn. For more details, click Location in the menu bar.
Can we have a wedding ceremony in the studio? Most definitely! We’ve had a number of couples get married right here in the studio! We can work with you to help make a smooth transition from ceremony to reception if that’s what you’d like to do! If you’re looking for an officiant, Kathy Diedrich has done a number of ceremonies in the area.
