Hello and Thanks for considering The Loft at Young Lion for your event! 

 

Welcome to our private 2nd floor event space, The Loft at Young Lion  

We take pride in what we do and our team works hard to make each event special and unique. Our nearly 2500 sf  event space is flooded with natural light and year round lake views on the north end of Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate NY. The Loft can accommodate up to 100 for seated dinner receptions and up to 150 for cocktail events.

 Opening the Loft in August of 2018, our teams vision was to open an event space that could be easily transformed to fit every client’s style and color palate. This Industrial space has wood look flooring, bistro and edison lighting. The lounge off the bar has a custom sliding glass barn door with leather sofas, private hall for restrooms. Our Beer-tenders are always willing to guide guests on choosing a beer from our 14 tap line bar. We serve a variety of our craft beer, as well as a selection of red & white wines and guest tap of hard cider for our non-beer drinkers. 

Please take a look below for info on our vendors and some frequently asked questions about events at YLBC.
