The historic Linen Building is a 100-year-old architectural masterpiece currently used as a multipurpose space exquisitely designed for concerts, art exhibits, nonprofit benefits and private events, including weddings and business functions. The venue is centrally located in the historic Linen District, near downtown Boise. Built in the early 1900’s, the building at 1402 W. Grove St. is the former home of a linen supply company. It’s the focal point of the Linen District, which runs from 13th Street to 16th Street, and from Main Street to Front Street. (Footnote 1)
The current tenant is The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence. We envision creating a community space for organizing, celebrating, healing and learning.
Current maximum occupancy is 388 people, though we recommend not to exceed 300 people for spaciousness and accessibility.
The distance between pillars is 30 feet.

You can provide your own insurance for the event through your insurance company. We require an additional $1,000,000 liability insurance policy naming the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence as an additional insured.
Alternatively, we can provide the insurance for your event at an additional cost of $100.00.
You can opt to clean the space yourself, which would entail removing all personal property, taking the trash out, and sweeping. A checklist and cleaning supplies (trashcan liners and broom) are provided by us.
Alternatively, you can opt to leave the cleaning to us at an additional cost of $100.00.
While we provide all of our inventory of tables and chairs at no additional cost, we do not provide a crew to set up/tear down or help with decorating. You are welcome to seek the services of an event planner to assist with these tasks.
Alternatively, if you rent the tables and chairs from Tates Rents (208-336-5486), they offer a set up and tear down service for an additional fee.
If you have Audio/Visual needs in addition to the standard items provided (see inventory above), please contact Valiant Productions.
