South Gate Center is a spectacular mid-century modern building, designed by well-known architect Victor Lundy of the Sarasota School of Architecture. It sits on five private acres beside the shady banks of beautiful Phillippi Creek. It’s conveniently located in gracious Sarasota–just off South Gate Circle at Tuttle Avenue and Siesta Drive.
Two expansive floor-to-ceiling glass walls of the Creek Side Room provide views of the creek, aquatic birds and animals, majestic trees dripping with Spanish moss, and other beautiful vegetation. This can be a stunning venue for your catered rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, or almost any special occasion. The Creek Side Room easily holds 140 guests, seated at eight-foot banquet tables, with room remaining for a spacious dance floor. Auditorium-style seating will accommodate 200. Of course, we will set up tables and chairs to your taste, according to your personal floor plan.
A large, caterer-friendly kitchen, table and chair set-up, ample parking, and marquee signage comprise the rental.
If your occasion is a wedding, you’ll be glad to know that we have a bridal room to accommodate you. If you choose, your ceremony may be held on our spacious lawn, overlooking the creek, with the reception held inside the building.
This historic hall is available for your historic occasion.
