Highlighting HighGround

October 20, 2016 | Décor, Holiday, Paramount Events, Paramount Events Inspiration, Venue Category, Weddings



Everyday, we receive calls and emails from clients looking for the ideal spot to host. As you know, The Lakewood is open and currently being reserved for weddings, holiday parties and more, but sometimes, you just don’t need a larger venue for the event you’re trying to plan.


Introducing HighGround! This bright, lofted space comes to you from Paramount Events and is so versatile, it can accommodate whatever you have in mind. Looking for a comfortable spot to watch the game? We have plenty of lounge furniture, TVs and (arguably the most important) a fully stocked wet bar.

Throwing a bridal shower? A birthday party? We’d love to help you host! The space is perfect, plus, you’ll have the dedicated Paramount Events team at the ready. We’ll help you customize the perfect menu and be sure you have everything you need.


HighGround can host up to 50 guests for Seated Events and up to 80 guests for Cocktail-style parties. Use our furniture and decor, or we’ll help you source whatever best fits your needs.


Oh, and at the time of this post, holiday party planning is really ramping up! Spoiler Alert: HighGround works well for those too.




And finally, as an added bonus, any of our Wedding Clients with The Lakewood have complimentary access to HighGround for pre-ceremony preparation, including our Bridal Suite.
