Commons Conference Center and Commons Cafe are indefinitely closed.

We are sad to share that The Commons Conference Center and Café is closed effective immediately due to COVID-19’s business impact on our operations.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us. Closing was a difficult decision to make; we hope to reopen and will share updates as they are available. We will also reach out to anyone who has outstanding bookings or food orders with us.
