City Market Social House Wins Best Event Venue at 2019 Special Events Gala Awards


DTLA’s hot new contemporary warehouse event space wins the prestigious 2019 Gala Award for Best Event Venue

LOS ANGELES, February 5, 2019 ( – City Market Social House, a new contemporary warehouse event space located in downtown L.A.’s Fashion District, won the prestigious 2019 Gala Award for Best Event Venue. Special Events magazine named the winners of the 34th Annual Gala Awards last month at a ceremony in San Diego.

Since rolling open its doors last April, City Market Social House has become the hottest venue for those seeking a unique event space. The venue is housed in a loft-style contemporary warehouse with vaulted bow-truss ceilings, concrete and exposed brick walls and a free-flowing indoor-outdoor design that spans over 12,000 feet of full-service event space, creating a canvas that can be quickly transformed to host corporate events, award shows, product launches, conferences, filming and private social celebrations.

“We had a grand vision for this place. It’s quickly grown into something even better than we could have ever imagined and winning the Gala Award is certainly an unexpected honor,” said Nicole Stubbs, general manager of City Market Social House. “The community has really embraced what we’re doing here. We’re not a typical banquet hall. We’re creating unique experiences that people are talking about. There’s a contagious energy.”

The venue has been pre-wired and powered for any lighting, sound or power scheme one could dream up, with in-house audiovisual capabilities and event production services by VOX Productions. A vast state-of-the-art commercial kitchen (with viewing loft) offers a diverse variety of customizable catering options, which include choosing from a hand-curated list of preferred caterers or bringing in specialty culinary service.

The space can comfortably hold 400 people for weddings, 500 for banquets, 800 for concerts or fashion shows or 1,000 for receptions. There’s also 3,500 square feet of outdoor courtyard space and a green room.
