As you can see from the floor plan, the venue is rather spacious and can accommodate rather large gatherings of friends and family. Lights Out Entertainment has partnered with 1899 to provide quality entertainment and give you and your guests the experience you deserve and dreamed of! Some add on options that we would suggest are Up Lighting, and an animated monogram. Uplighting would take this neat venue to the next level of WOW!
Speaking of floor plans you are not limited to using just the interior of the building you can use the grounds outside to have you outdoor ceremony. There are many options on the property for that unique outdoor wedding that would suit your dreams. Lights Out Entertainment is properly equipped to provide the audio outdoors anywhere on the property.

You can have furniture brought in to match your vintage flare. You can easily find a vintage rental company to provide you with chairs, tables, and whatever your heart desires to make the space truly unique to your event. In fact we have awesome friends over at Molly and Myrtle that will gladly help you.
The building was built originally in 1899 by Central State Hospital and was used for quite some time as a recreational and gathering area for the patients of the hospital, it then was used as a dinning area up until the hospital closed two decades ago. The owners have carefully preserved the building from unique floor tiles, wood work, and the ceilings with the sky lights. It is rather cool and unique venue that you won't find anything quite like it in the Indianapolis area.
Keep in mind we are not photographers we are DJs who can capture your vision and bring the party. These are some Photo's that Mikey took when doing a site visit for one of our couples!
