The Kirkland Event Facility
Are you planning a meeting, conference, or training session? Or maybe a wedding, rehearsal dinner or baby shower?
Have your next event at the historic Kirkland, a 19th-century landmark in Kingston a the corner of Clinton Avenue and Main Street uptown. Once the home of the famed Dutch Rathskeller Restaurant, the building was restored by RUPCO in 1989 and is ready to be put to use for your next event. Choose from two rooms depending on your expected attendance and presentation needs.
The Kirkland’s Senate room is approximately 1200 square feet and offers three high-definition TV screens which can be teamed up with a laptop or tablet presentation. Access your cloud-based content via WiFi. Need a mic? Our sound system includes a PA system quipped with wireless or wired microphone (both work well with our handcrafted stand-up podium or desktop dias). Arrange the room to fit your needs with access to 75 padded black chairs, 12 2’x4′ tables and several banquet tables. The Senate Room provides the following maximum capacities:
- Standing Reception – 110
- Seated Dinner – 72
- Classroom – 50
- Seated Lecture – 100 (pictured below)
Senate Room too large or need some additional space? Just off the main lobby, The Kirkland’s Cloak Room provides enough room for smaller conferences, board meetings, or can serve as a spare room for conference break-out sessions.
Our spacious and professionally equipped kitchen is ready to receive your caterer. Your food service team can use the Kirkland’s generous refrigeration space, commercial oven, and ample preparation tables. It’s conveniently located across the hall from the Senate Room, providing strategic serving access.
