Frequently asked

Do you offer discounts?

We’re happy to offer a 20% discount for members of The Mill who have been with us for more than 6 months.

Where is The Mill located?

We are located at 642 North Madison Street, directly south of Upland Brewing on 11th Street.


Well, that depends! We can fit 130 people for a seated dinner in the Event Hall. That includes having room for buffet tables and walking traffic. If you’re planning on having a dance floor, too, you’ll likely have to move some tables after dinner to make that happen. We can help with that. 

If you want to have your ceremony here too, more room “flips” may be necessary. We’ll create floor plans for each stage and advise you of what’s possible. 

The Event Hall can hold up to 200 people for a standing reception. You can add the cocktail lounge and/or the patio to increase capacity.

Where can guests park during the event?

Please relay to your guests the following: The Mill is located at 642 N Madison, just across the street from Upland Brewing Co on 11th Street. Parking out front on Madison St and Maker Way is for Mill members only M-F, 8a-5p. There is one ADA parking space located at the corner of Madison and 11th on the east side of the street. Vehicles may be parked at the Trades District garage on the corner of West 10th and Rogers, or on street on 11th, Morton, or Rogers. Free 2-hour parking nearby (when available) is located west of Rogers on 11th St. There is bike parking on the west and south sides of the building, and the #2 bus travels along Morton Street. 

Is your space ADA accessible?

Yes. It includes two accessible restrooms and an ADA-compliant elevator lift. There is one ADA parking space located at the corner of Madison and 11th on the east side of the street. 

WhIch entrance do I use for the event hall space?

The entrance to the event space is on the ground level at the southwest corner of the building. 

Will there be a Mill staff member on site?

Yes, there will be a Mill representative in the building during your event. Their main job is to make sure that all venue aspects go according to your plan.

What DOES it mean that the Mill offers coworking?

Coworking is an arrangement in which workers of different companies share an office space, allowing cost savings and convenience through the use of common infrastructures, such as equipment, utilities, and receptionist and custodial services, and in some cases refreshments and parcel acceptance services.

What’s your policy on food?

You are welcome to bring in any outside food you like. 

For banquets and weddings, we recommend Upland Brewing Company (Bloomington-based), One World Catering (Bloomington-based), and Finney Hospitality Group (Bloomington-based) as caterers who are familiar with catering events at our facility. We have other recommendations, too! We have a catering kitchen that you can use to prep food on the tables there. There is no oven, only microwaves.

Note: Food trucks may require special permits to park on city streets. Contact the City of Bloomington to ensure you secure all the proper permissions.

Can we have alcohol at our event?

Yes. You must either obtain your own temporary beer and wine permit from the state ATC and have a licensed bartender serving, OR hire professional bar service (we recommend Upland Bar Services or One World Catering). Proof of permits and insurance (as outlined in our rental agreement) will be required. You can read more about the state laws on serving alcohol at a rented venue here.

How many people can you accommodate?

For a reception with banquet rounds or long tables (end to end, “picnic” style), the capacity is 130. The Event Hall can hold up to 200 guests for a standing reception (we recommend 150 for the best experience). If you book the cocktail lounge and the patio, capacity increases (see more details here). We will work with you to understand your needs and explain what’s possible.

Can I decorate the space?

Of course, we encourage you to make it your own! We just ask that you ONLY use masking tape when attaching things to the walls and brick and Gaffer tape on the floors. No tacks, nails, staples, command hooks, duct tape, etc are allowed.

Can I tour the space prior to booking?

Yes, we would love to give you a tour and recommend looking at the space before you book. Please schedule or call us at 812-250-9714.

How do I reserve the space?

Check out this easy form to begin your reservation process. Please note that our space is booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our booking process consists of a verbal agreement resulting in a hold on the space, followed by a signed contract and an invoice detailing your order.

How late can we stay on site?

All guests must be out of the building by midnight. Your clean up (taking out trash, removing decorations, packing up leftover food, cleaning out the catering kitchen)  can go until 1 am. If we plan it in advance, you may be able to do your clean up the following day. Hourly rates apply!
