The Reserve is a distinctive and historic meeting space of almost 5,000 square feet--that also has guest accommodations--where you can hold unforgettable special events including weddings, parties, reunions and meetings and retreats, just a stone’s throw from the Bay, the Van Wezel, Florida Studio Theater, the Ca’d’Zan, the Ringling Art Museum, and more. You can rent out the entire facility, or a single room or suite, while enjoying the beautiful outdoor courtyard with overhead Edison bulb lighting. Experience a piece of true Sarasota history and the Ringling heritage. 

Book launch events, meetings, celebrations, reunions, and retreats: Host a distinctive launch party, meeting, or retreat when you rent one of our main rooms (which accommodates 2-25 people) and receive coffee, tea, and food and beverage service. The food menu is located here. Customized pricing available by contacting Kim Cressell at or calling 1-888-41-RESER (1-888-417-3737).
