A dynamic event space with 360-degree views of downtown Rochester and beyond, the Penthouse at One East Avenue provides the perfect urban setting for social gatherings, corporate meetings and celebrations.
The Penthouse, located on the 11th floor of One East Avenue, is within walking distance of downtown hotels, nightlife and entertainment. Built in 1962 for the Security Trust Company, One East Avenue is currently owned by Gallina Development; the 11th floor was converted into an event space in 2013.
Since then, the Penthouse – operated by Key Hospitality LLC – has hosted countless weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, showers and parties in a space that can hold up to 250 guests, but still feels intimate. Its positioning and floor-to-ceiling glass windows make the Penthouse an ideal place to watch Rochester’s Fourth of July fireworks, Jazz Fest, the St. Patrick’s Day parade and other downtown happenings. On a clear day, visitors can even see as far as Lake Ontario and Bristol Mountain, and the open-air wraparound terrace is a great place to catch a Rochester sunset.
The Penthouse also holds its own events, including silent discos and musical performances, as well as a weekly Sunset Cocktail Series during the summer.
