The Exchange Ballroom is a perfect blend of contemporary design with historic character and boasts amazing views of downtown Portland. The Main Foyer is a modern space with exposed old growth timbers and plenty of natural light.
The ballroom includes French bistro seating with 6 tables and 12 chairs, coat racks, AV capabilities, wifi, and (7) 6′ x 5′ mirrored walls are designed to separate the Ballroom into staff and guest areas. Three different lighting systems are included with the rental: the house pendants are on dimmers and controlled by the bay, the column sconce (dimmable) and the drape down lights (dimmable). The main entrance to the Ballroom showcase a blown glass sculpture by Andy Paiko. The main foyer includes a long built-in wood bench and four commissioned modern tables and 8 chairs (the tables and chairs are removable).
