Union Market : Dock 5

April 7, 2015

Post Photo

The historic Union Market district is now home to a unique, warehouse event site, Dock 5.  The space has an industrial chic vibe and features over 12,000 square feet, 22’ high ceilings, polished concrete floors and glass garage doors that roll up to extend the party onto an open-air dock and private alley. Dock 5 is directly above the artisanal marketplace, Union Market, which houses over 30 of the top food producers in the region.

Seated dinners, awards programs, dance parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs, concerts – the space is great for a wide variety of events and is easy to customize with lighting, drape and decor. Thanks to photographer Molly Peterson for these shots from this wintery, holiday party.


Our fun cocktail station menu included Pastas, Flatbread Pizzas, Sliders, Antipasto, Quesadillas and Mini Sweets.
