Our secure, private parking lot host over 30 parking spaces. Street parking is also easily accessible on and around Payne and East 47 Street. For larger events, we highly recommend hosting valet service for swift arrival and departure convenience for your guests

Our Location

There is! The Madison has year-round indoor climate control.

Yes, the use of our outdoor patio with bistro lights is included in your rental fee and can accommodate 300 guests for cocktails or 150 for seated separate dining. You may consider renting heaters or a tent when expecting chilier or inclimate weather. Music hosted on the patio must end at 10:00 pm due to local noise ordinances.

The Venue

Why, yes! We have two modernly designed restrooms that accommodate 14 guests at a time. Both are ADA accessible

Yes, two! Our styled suites are furnished and designed by Restoration Hardware and include plush seating and extra large mirrors. And, they are drenched with natural light. As cinematographers, we knew exactly how to design these suites to provide the best conditions for getting ready footage possible. These two spaces also double as great VIP areas or for privacy from the party.

Vendors

We recommend it! While our venue coordinator will be on-site during your event, their job is to oversee The Madison and the services we provide with the venue. The vendor selection process, planning schedules, budgeting, day of timeline and coordination is best left to professional planners who have experience with your overall event needs

It’s in our mission to be accommodating. You are welcome to use the caterer, and other event vendors, of your choice. We just ask that all food service providers to be licensed. Some of the area’s best event vendors have gotten to know our space well. Just ask if you like some recommendations.

We have a community partnership with the Cleveland Police Department who provides on-site security.

DESIGN

Yes, and more! See our inclusions page


Inclusions


Sure! We also offer 100 feet of white 16’ tall pipe and drape complimentary. Ask us for pipe and drape vendor recommendations for needs beyond that 100 feet.


Inclusions


Heck yes. We’ve done it before and it’s a great way to  host additional outdoor space or a designed entrance.

Events

Sure! Just consider celebrating guests who enjoy themselves while visiting the bar and dancing to the music.

Events



Absolutely. We’ve seen some beautiful dance floor sets ups in a variety of locations in the main venue. Ask our venue coordinator for some layout examples.

Events

With permission, please ask and coordinate the details with our venue coordinator so we can adhere to building ordinances and provide safe conditions for you and your guests.

We may host events the day before or after your event. We ask that you set up and tear down within the hours of your event rental timeframe. If you need to store decor items before or after your event, ask your venue coordinator how we can accommodate.

venue coordinator

Nope. The Madison has a designated space perfect for food service staff to set up kitchen equipment and food expo lines. We also offer a specific entrance for your catering team and provide a separate bathroom for your catering staff and vendors in the vendor area for their convenience.

Please work with your venue coordinator to coordinate vendor load in times or specific portions of your event schedule that you’d like the doors to be open. Of course, opening the oversized dock doors for extended periods of time can limit our control of the climate inside The Madison. The doors must be shut at 10:00 pm due to local noise ordinances.

Smoking is only permitted in specifically designated areas outdoors for the safety and comfort of your guests and vendors.

The Madison will clean the venue and event spaces we offer before and after your event. Your or your vendors will need to remove your decor, event rentals, and personal belongings within the rental timeframes as described in your rental contract.

Most event rental companies require all linens to be placed within provided linen bags, and tables to be broken down and stacked, along with chairs, and placed for picked up at the same or similar location as delivery. Ask your rental companies for their requirements and work with those companies, your caterer and/or event planner to meet their needs to ensure you’re not charged additional fees from them (or us.)

You, or your caterer, will need to provide a certificate of insurance to cover all vendors. We require $1 million general aggregate / per occurrence including property damage. The policy should include Host Liquor Liability if you are serving alcohol. These policies typically cost under $200 and can be secured up to 24 hours before your event starts. Send the policy copy to your venue coordinator
