Art ‘n Motion is the 18,000 square foot host building for The Assembly Room events. Located just within the historic St. Augustine city entrance, this two-story brick building is an early 1900s industrial-inspired masterpiece with modern amenities. Showcasing brick walls, handcrafted woodwork and exposed ceilings, the inside of this newly constructed building is raw yet polished.
The Assembly Room at Art ‘n Motion has 5 beautiful spaces to choose from for your event. Keeping in mind that every event is unique, we have multiple packages to choose from. These packages range from one room for a more intimate event or mix and match several rooms. Included in almost every package, Art ‘n Motion also offers access to our caterers’ kitchen as well as a large amount of convenient private parking making it a rarity in downtown St. Augustine.
