Rent The Rock

You march to the beat of a different drummer—and so should your events. Whether your holiday party, wedding, off-site meeting or post-work happy hour is for 20 or 2,000 people, the Rock Hall has a space or package that fits your needs.

Get the party started by contacting the sales department at (216) 515-8420 or [email protected], or by filling out the Facility Rentals Reservation Request form. We can't guarantee that you'll run into a rock star while you're here—but we'll certainly treat you like one!
