When facing the cycles of life, “there’s nothing new under the sun” is something often said. While this may apply to much in life, there may be one place it does not: event venues.
Event spaces have been hard at work to make sure there’s always something new for groups to see and experience while they network and make connections. Here are seven venues around the United States that are indeed creating new things under the sun.

Oasis Wynwood, Miami
The Miami-based event space is a fresh addition to the city. The property’s 35,000-square-foot courtyard, quite the showstopper, holds about 2,000 people. Surrounding the courtyard are six F&B options, such as Buya Dumplings + Buns, Chikin, Los Buenos and Prince Street Pizza. The space also has a private indoor bar, Huacachina, for something more intimate.
Oasis also hosts weekly live performances and cultural events that focus on local art, as well as retail pop-ups.
Located in the mixed-use project Brickell City Centre, The Social Hub Miami is split into 18 stations, dubbed interactive studios, and is a haven for those with a lively social media presence (or who just like taking pictures); it’s equipped with vibrant backdrops, props and LED ring lights. After hours, the 3,500-square-foot space is open to private bookings for up 30.
Indie Studios, Atlanta
This shared workspace is targeted to designers and creative types. The space features 12 studios, which can seat from seven to 32 people; groups can also rent out community spaces, such as the lobby and library, which hold up 200. Groups will be greeted with cinnamon rolls served with complimentary coffee and tea, ample outdoor space and two bars (although you’ll need to supply your own alcohol).
Experiential art meets event space in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Allapattah. In collaboration with Thierry Isambert Culinary and Event Design, the property houses 5,065 sq. ft. of indoor event space designed to complement vibrant displays of art throughout the facility. Superblue’s recently converted 50,000-square-foot space will feature a shop with artist-focused items, event space and an on-site outdoor cafe.
The facility also has a 7,090-square-foot outdoor area, an indoor venue and a cozy art-decorated space for intimately sized groups.
Wynwood Arts District, Miami
Miami’s street art stars in the city’s Wynwood District, where locals and tourists who are art enthusiasts come to marvel at the more than 70 galleries. Wynwood Walls, considered the neighborhood’s centerpiece, is a warehouse turned art destination and home to more than 35 murals by global artists.
In collaboration with Bill Hansen Catering, Wynwood Walls offers private outdoor space in the only outdoor street museum in the United States.
Hudson Whaler, New York
Restored from one of downtown Hudson’s historic buildings, the newly open boutique hotel is just two hours outside of New York City. Guests will find fanciful woodwork throughout and an interior redolent of a classic sailing ship of a century gone by. At 16 guest rooms, this property makes for a great option for buyouts; the property’s lower-level event space can hold roughly 46 people, and its outdoor courtyard can hold 20.
