Private Events

We’d love to host your event! Our space can accommodate up to 50 people inside and another 20 to 25 on the patio.

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, corporate mixer or holiday office party, Hop Yard 62 offers a special environment in historic Town Center, Grove City, OH. Our vintage inspired industrial space is a great alternative to more traditional rental spaces and is the perfect reflection of the old town feel of our downtown neighborhood.

The building itself was built before World War I and at one time stored old fire trucks for the volunteer fire department. It was also a Studebaker and Regal car sales room and eventually became Bethard’s Garage in 1932. The current owners removed the old floor to expose the original concrete. It’s a very cool space.

Hop Yard 62 can host events Monday through Sunday** Anytime. Prices will vary based on times being asked for: Except in rare instances, we are unable to host private events on Friday or Saturday evenings..
