Host a Hot Event
With its chic, urban-industrial design, Pittsburgh Glass Center offers an exceptional space for hosting your group event, from intimate dinner parties and milestone celebrations to bar/bat mitzvahs and wedding receptions. With space for socializing, sit-down meals, presentations, and meetings, PGC is also an excellent location for corporate receptions.
Give your guests a truly memorable experience.
The Space—Chic + Sustainable
Once home to a Studebaker showroom, PGC’s unique building was redesigned in accordance with federal Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and, in 2006, received LEED Gold certification, which recognizes excellence in energy efficiency, water use, and air quality. It’s the exposed brick, glass paneling, and garage doors—all responsibly upcycled—that give the space its visual appeal. The building’s many windows offer stunning neighborhood views, and the garage doors can be opened to welcome in warm breezes during the spring, summer, and fall. During the winter, host a holiday party by the warmth of PGC’s furnaces.
The Possibilities—Practical + Exciting
We’re not just another pretty space. We can also offer your guests an experience.
