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 staff member 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 One World Catering (Bloomington-based), Nameless Catering (Indianapolis-based), Upland Brewing Company (Bloomington-based), and Board + Blade (Ellettsville-based) as caterers who are familiar with catering events at our facility. We have a catering kitchen that you can use to prep food on the tables there; it doesn’t offer a way to warm food, however.
Can we have alcohol at our event?
Yes, but you must 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.
How many people can you accommodate?
Under our current COVID capacities, the Event Hall can hold up to 100 guests for a standing or seated reception. If you book the patio too, the capacity increases to 200 guests for an indoor-outdoor event. Safety is our first priority. We follow county health guidelines closely and will work with you to understand your needs, explain what’s possible, and make adjustments as recommendations shift over time.
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.
