EAST AURORA'S EXCITING NEW EVENT VENUE AND BOUTIQUE HOTEL
The Bank is a historic landmark, event venue and boutique hotel in East Aurora, NY. Built in 1923, its imposing facade has been a prominent feature of East Aurora's charming downtown for a century.
Once a symbol of all that was straight-laced and proper, this heritage building has been treated to a gorgeous restoration that turns boring on its head. While remaining respectful to the original structure, The Bank has put on its party clothes! 3,000 square feet of light-filled space welcomes guests for a night of dining and dancing. High ceilings, tall Palladian windows, gleaming hardwood floors and original skylight give it the elegance and character that only a historic building can possess. A fabulous Art Deco wet bar invites guests to celebrate in Gatsby-esque style. Throughout the venue, elements of the past have been thoughtfully fused with modern conveniences for a deluxe experience.
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
As an authentic, working bank for nearly a century, The Bank boasts a number of exclusive features. The lobby vault makes a stunning focal point in the main event space, adding a touch of industrial glam. It's the perfect backdrop for wedding pictures, or a photo booth for guests. A secret door has been installed so that special guests can make a surprise entrance from the vault into the event space. Or a bride-to-be could be presented from the vault, a sweet symbolic reminder that she is her family's 'treasure'.
A massive vintage bank directory has been retrofitted to display slide shows, real-time photo booth images, or power point presentations. The Boardroom is now the bridal suite. Its handsome oak paneling and fireplace provide a quiet, stress-free refuge for brides, and a lovely space for 'getting ready' photos. Other playful touches celebrate The Bank's past: real penny tile on vault floors; a bullet-riddled door; a scavenger hunt map of world coins embedded in the floors; a chance to 'crack' a safe, and more. The Bank provides a setting that is not just unique and memorable, but fun!
The Bank's amenities have been carefully designed to give guests a flawless experience. These include a professional caterer's kitchen, coat room, well-appointed new restrooms, wheelchair accessibility, ADA compliant restroom and bridal suite. Sound system, tables and chairs are of course included.
