space request

An intimate space on the lower level of the Rotunda, The Well can only accommodate private events outside of the bar’s operating hours.  It may be requested for private events during the day or evening on Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday. Private events on Wednesday–Friday must conclude by 4:00pm before the bar opens.

Private events must be at least 2 hours long and there is a $1,500 minimum for food and beverage if you're using The Well menu. The space use fee has been temporarily waived, but there will be additional fees for production services and the hospitality labor.

The Well Gallery is automatically included as an additional space for events in The Well.
