We are absolutely elated every time we get the opportunity to set up our rentals at The Evergreen. This spacious high ceiling historic venue is a masterpiece.
Renovations of the former Portland Police event space were done to reveal and celebrate the original architecture. Drop down ceilings were removed to expose the full height of the ballroom and the original circular windows near the roof line.
They revealed the brick walls, sand blasted the cement post and beams, and refurbished the original 1908 maple dance floor.
This view shows you the back of the venue. There’s stairs on the back left side that lead to the mezzanine. We’ve seen many client decorate the stairwell with candles and florals.
And we’ve had clients rent lounge groupings for the upstairs as a retreat for their guests.
On the perimeter of the dance floor they put in large concrete tiles introducing a touch of modern to the space, but only with the intention of emphasizing the original craftsmanship
The beauty of this large space with high ceilings is that it can easily host any type of event. We’ve had both corporate clients and wedding rent our furniture in this space.
So what do The Evergreen’s clients like most about hosting their event there? We asked Shannon at The Evergreen to give us some insight.
“Having a large indoor historic building that features tons of exposed brick, amazing natural light, noted architecture, multiple floors, full AV capabilities, 25′ ceilings, built in custom bar, climate control and private suite are just a few of the reasons we find clients love our space.
Having a historic venue that has been completely renovated located right in the heart of the city provides clients access to create a very “Portland” themed events. Our unique ability to partner with Loyal Legion for cocktail hours etc. further adds to the Portland vibe. Clients boast about our versatility. While the space doesn’t need much to make it come alive, when clients do decide to personalize, it can really transform the space.
The venue can hold events of any size from intimate gatherings to large parties and lends itself to any style or color providing clients with a modern industrial backdrop perfect for their next event.”
