THE LOCATION

The Barlow Event Venue is situated in the center of The Barlow, Sebastopol’s 12.5-acre Market District. The Barlow campus is home to a community of Sonoma County’s finest vintners, brewers, distillers, artisans and award-winning restaurants. All of these makers are only steps from The Barlow Event Venue giving you easy access to the absolute best local catering, flowers, gifts and more.

Perfect for a Bar Mitzvah, birthday party, anniversary party or any kind of celebration, the Barlow Event Venue is anything but ordinary.


THE VENUE

A private and oasis that will host up to 500 guests, the Barlow Event Venue is a versatile venue that can transform to meet your vision.

Comprised of three private areas, the Venue can be imagined in any number of ways from a farm-to-table country affair, to an industrial-chic urban soiree. Designed to move guests through a unique experience, each area is distinctly different and when used together, can take guests on journey from afternoon music on the lawn under the 100-year-old oak tree, a twilight cocktail reception on the terrace, to dinner in the warehouse.

THE WAREHOUSE

The grand room and center of activities, the Warehouse features vaulted ceilings, industrial concrete floors and rustic, reclaimed barn-wood wall treatments. Four large glass roll-up doors accented by romantic curtains complement the space and open the room so guests can move freely to enjoy inside and outdoor festivities.

  • Seated Capacity: 180
  • Standing Capacity: 250
  • Capacity is flexible, call us or submit an inquiry for more information.

THE TERRACE

Walk through the large glass roll-up doors of the warehouse, and you’ll find the Terrace. This large concrete patio can hold tables for dining, a tent for large celebrations or couches for an outdoor lounge. Set next to an old oak tree adorned with twinkle lights, this is a favorite spot for a twilight cocktail hour.

  • Capacity: 60 to 120
  • Capacity is flexible, call us or submit an inquiry for more information.

THE LAWN

Past the Terrace is nearly 8,000 square feet of lush Lawn surrounded by a 12-foot high living fence made of the sweetest smelling Jasmine. At one end, our 100-year-old oak tree provides a shady backdrop for lounging or bands. Past the oak you’ll find small organic garden-beds used by restaurants on property to supply fresh, farm-to-table vegetables.

  • Seated Capacity: 290
  • Standing Capacity: 400
  • *Capacity is flexible, call us or submit an inquiry for more information.

THE SHED

Adjacent to the Warehouse is the Shed, a 1,200 square foot funky and charming addition to the Barlow Event Venue. With an 18-foot peaked ceiling, handsome chandelier and romantic market lights, it is perfect for an intimate dinner, a welcome center or dance floor. The rustic barn wood doors are a popular backdrop to photograph the happy couple.

  • The Shed is available for an additional cost and is not part of the standard Barlow Event Venue.
  • Capacity: 49
  • Capacity is flexible, call us or submit an inquiry for more information.
