Boston Venue Spotlight: 9 One Federal Street (9OFS)
Downtown Boston features one of the most visually dazzling event venues in all of New England—9OFS. The venue is an indoor and outdoor jewel, complete with a wide open rooftop terrace, patio space and stunning panoramic view. The illuminated building facades and bustle of the streets below give the venue a feel of sophistication and class that no other nearby event space can touch.
About the Space
This gorgeous tower was built in 1976 and has continued to stand as a model of modern technology and sophistication. At 38 stories, the building includes such noteworthy tenants as AON, J.P. Morgan and U.S. Bank.
9OFS features a rentable area of over 1.1 million square feet and a two-story underground parking garage. The rooftop includes a massive terrace garden and reflection pool surrounded by beautiful spotlighted trees. The gallery and reception areas are located just inside, giving the space a distinguished indoor/outdoor flexibility. Past the elevator lobby and catering area is the indoor loft, which provides shelter from the elements and a small rooftop courtyard (giving 9OFS even more flexible space accommodations).
Events Typically Hosted at 9OFS
Weddings at 9OFS have featured outdoor open bars and cocktail lounges, elaborate dance floors and multiple forms of live entertainment.
