Indoor Dance Hall and Bar
The indoor dance hall and bar is part of The Old Mill Distillery in a portion of The Hall which was once used as the mill’s employee cafeteria.
The dance hall portion of The Hall (old cafeteria) is largely in its original condition from the 1930’s with recently refinished original hardwood floors made of Douglas Fir timber from the old McCloud mill (Learn more about the history of McCloud). The coffered wood beam ceilings are original with the coffers and ceiling containing original hand paintings. The walls are of original timber from the McCloud mill built in 1935 after the original building burned down.
All provide a feeling of stepping back in time with some “Old Mill” class. The dance hall also comes with the “McCloud Mountain Stage” for your favorite live band or DJ to play, or you can utilize The Hall’s modern Bose sound system for your own play mix. All venue rentals come with the entire indoor dance hall, bar, and outdoor courtyard and deck. The Old Mill Distillery will be closed to the public when rented out for private parties.
Outdoor Courtyard, Deck, and Bar
The Hall has an outdoor courtyard, fire pit, fountain, and a large deck perfect for weddings, wedding receptions, and private parties. Your party/event can begin in the outdoor courtyard and deck, and then extend into The Hall’s elegant dance hall. Or have your event entirely inside the dance hall or outdoor courtyard. The outdoor courtyard comes with a customized bar that will be utilized if you select an alcohol package.
The courtyard is provided and maintained by KC Landscaping of McCloud CA. The owner Kyle Carpenter was formerly with the world famous French Laundry of Yountville, CA where he installed and maintained the grounds and gardens. Kyle branched off to start KC Landscaping to provide top notch landscaping services for all. Get married or have a private party in this beautifully landscaped courtyard with fire pit, fountain, and bar.
Wedding/Event Setup and Maximum Occupancy
The indoor dance hall, outdoor courtyard, and deck can be configured in any manner you desire. For instance, you can hold your wedding ceremony or event in the outdoor courtyard and deck area, followed by standing-room only drinks in the dance hall, then return to the deck and courtyard for your dinner and the speeches. After the dinner and speeches, the celebration can then migrate back into the dance hall, remain in the outside courtyard or it can be a combination of the two. Basically, you can choose any sequence for where you want your event to take place within The Hall. Bottom line: The Hall’s outdoor courtyard, deck and indoor dance hall are all yours. Depending how you prefer the setup of the outside courtyard, deck and dance hall, the maximum occupancy for your event varies. With tables and chairs for a dining experience the maximum occupancy is 205 people. However, The Hall can accommodate additional guests beyond 205 depending if you have only chairs, no tables, or standing space only. Call and/or email for maximum occupancy for various setup scenarios.
Tables and Chairs
As part of the venue rental, The Hall will provide tables and chairs for your event. The Hall offers live edge walnut tables that are approximately 7 1/2′ feet long by 3 1/2′ wide, and 3 1/2″ thick. The legs are made of polished steel and built on casters to allow the tables to be moved around in any configuration you desire. These tables are amazing! The Hall also provides traditional banquet tables to complement or substitute the live edge walnut tables. Should you wish to rent different style tables and chairs from a third-party vendor, these items will not be included as part of The Hall’s venue rental pricing.
