Nucleus aims to be that modern, clean, and inspiring environment for your next event.  Normally, this space is an art gallery, but its versatility as an event venue makes it all the more amazing. The inside can hold up to fifty guests that can be wined and dined literally with a wine, beer, and beverage bar. We think this place is perfect for making your annual Tiny Tim Christmas toast.
