Looking for a meeting space that will get your group thinking outside the box? Here are a few meeting space venues that are unique to Henderson and will get some creative juices flowing for your team meeting or small group retreat.
1. Preston Fine Arts Center
Located at the Henderson Community College and home of the Henderson Area Arts Alliance, the Preston Fine Arts Center can adapt to fit a professional or formal group setting. Home of performing and visual arts, you can select a from multiple small and large venue spaces near rotating art exhibits. For a truly unique setting, book your meeting where the stars perform, right on stage.
2. John James Audubon State Park
What don’t we love about this Henderson treasure? Audubon State Park is also surrounded by art, as well as nature! The park has several indoor venues, including the main meeting room complete with tables, projector screen and kitchen access (seats 150), as well as a theater that can fit up to 47 in stadium-style seats. Or take your event outside on the Garden Lawn if you have a larger group meeting (accommodates up to 500 guests). During down time, take a swing through the museum or stroll among the beautiful park grounds. Perfect for any professional or laid back occasion.
3. Farmer & Frenchman Restaurant & Winery
Modern, yet traditional, with fine wines and yummy eats, Farmer & Frenchman has impressive flair and a home-style feel. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, young grape vines and a renovated tobacco barn, this venue is great is you want to incorporate a little Kentucky agriculture and history into your group session. Open Tuesday through Saturday, this family owned establishment can accommodate events up to 400 guests, but this venue accommodates to both large and small events. Call 270-748-1856 for availability.
4. Rookies Restaurant
Another restaurant with great food, but closer to downtown amenities is Rookies Restaurant. It is a short walk from many downtown hotspots, including the riverfront and local shopping. This casual setting is still a great spot to get some teamwork done (and maybe cut up with the coworkers for a round of drinks after). The large banquet space can accommodate up to 150 guests, with options for second floor seating.
5. Depot Community Room & Museum
Just a block away from Rookies is a great meeting space for small groups that are looking for a quiet yet unique space to hold meetings. The Depot Community Room & Museum is located on the riverfront as well. This venue fits about 10-12 comfortably, with large round table for open discussions; television access which is great for presentations, and comfortable seating for those long meetings that tend to go over than an hour. Before and after meeting times, guests can view permanent and rotating displays of interesting Henderson history, or jump across the hall to the Henderson County Tourist Commission for updates on current events and visitor information (or a cool Henderson t-shirt).
