MODERN, ELEGANT & SOPHISTICATED
Are you are looking for a modern venue in which to entertain your friends or business associates? One that is hip and stylish, yet comfortable and inviting? Then fifty-two-twenty-six elm could be the perfect place for your event.
Vibrant exterior architecture belies the modern, yet warm and inviting interior spaces. Floor-to-ceiling glass provides great views of the serene, inner-courtyard gardens with its stunning rose-covered pergola, coy-stocked meditation pool, and paths to meander through the grounds featuring a rock and waterfall swimming pool — all enclosed by a spectacular 20 ft bamboo surround.
fifty-two-twenty-six offers a unique combination of indoor and outdoor spaces in which to entertain your guests. The stylish Courtyard Room looks out onto a beautiful courtyard, which can seat up to 70 persons for dining. The two areas also combine to create the perfect space for an indoor/outdoor cocktail reception. This allows you to host a pre-event cocktail party and then move to the adjoining Studio for a seated dinner.
The versatile Studio also has 20 ft ceilings. It measures 40 x 60 feet and can accommodate up to 180 seated banquet style with a dance floor. This configuration is perfect for wedding receptions. It can also be configured as a ballroom with dramatic lighting, a dance floor and stage for a band. If you are just planning a cocktail party, we can comfortably accommodate 275 persons. Both spaces are suitable for virtually any type of event from casual to formal — whether sipping cocktails and nibbling on hors d’oeuvre, dining in high-style, or hosting more elaborate business oriented events.
