Tin Can Alley Tacoma - Event Space & Prop House
The venue is a facility for human connectivity as well as a celebration of art, culture, tourism and business. Constructed in 1919 as a factory to house Tacoma Can Company, the unique building features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a delightful combination of contemporary and rustic accents laced throughout. Private and secluded yet in the middle of it all with easy freeway access.
Casual or formal receptions at a whole new level. Space for up 300 guests standing, and walls that can be brought in to accommodate a more intimate crowd. Industrial cocktail tables, in-house lounge seating, & use of in-house specialty bars will bring this unique space to life. We like to say this is a speak-easy style venue for its unique location and features.
