Ruggles Hall, our largest room, is highly versatile.
Ruggles Hall provides many options for set-up flexibility in use of space for luncheons, dinner events, cocktail-style events, and classroom settings. Included in all rental events is full use of all of our dinner, cocktail, high top, and 6’ tables, as well as our opera or padded chairs. Clients are welcome to bring in customized lighting and other decor to dress the space to fit the event theme or company colors.

The Lobby is a lovely space for evening events.
Primarily accommodating cocktail receptions, the lobby’s exquisite details highlight the turn-of-the-century features for which the Newberry is so well known. An art-nouveau chandelier graces the lobby’s 20’ ceiling; the broad marble staircase, complemented by its ornate banister, is the focal point of the room. Use of our Steinway baby grand piano is included in the rental fee. Any of our exclusive caterers are welcome to work in this space; the Newberry can provide a list of suggested vendors upon request.
