About the venue:

A Stylish Place For A Party
By Kelsey Dunneback
Originally built in 1923 on the historic west side of Grand Rapids, New Vintage Place is an iconic building that has stood the test of time. Rising up over the outskirts of downtown, New Vintage Place was originally a power plant for the American Seating factory and over the years has played many roles in the landscape of GR, including its parking lot which was once utilized as the Union High School Football Field.

The building started a new chapter as New Vintage Place in 2015, officially opening as an event venue. It’s bold, brick-filled exterior expands into its interior as well, with high ceilings and large windows that let in natural light. The venue easily serves as the canvas for weddings, holiday parties, trade shoes, birthday parties, corporate events and more by lending its historical character to every event.

New Vintage Place boasts towering windows, original exposed brick and structural steel, soaring open-architecture ceilings and their iconic 150 foot high smoke stack. The venue features two expansive event spaces so you can get creative in tailoring your event to multiple rooms, allowing you to create different themes and atmospheres and accommodate different timelines. On its expansive property, you’ll also find two on-site dressing rooms, a stylish cocktail lounge, outdoor amphitheater, and courtyard.

With its large footprint and unique amenities, New Vintage Place has hosted everything from local fundraisers to fashion shows. Free on-site parking allows easy access for up to 300 guests, while still being close enough to capturing the charm and energy of the downtown area.

New Vintage Place is operated by RYE Venue Management. Founded in 2018, RYE specializes in the operation of intimate to mid-sized wedding and event venues. Leveraging years of collective expertise in the field, RYE is dedicated to optimizing venue operations, enhancing guest experiences, and revitalizing struggling properties. RYE has grown quickly and now manages five Grand Rapids venues including New Vintage Place, The Lit GR, Ballroom at McKay, Heritage Barn Co., and the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
