DreamBank Closed

The health and well-being of our guests and dreamers are of utmost importance to us, so in an effort to do our part to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made the decision to close DreamBank — through at least April 30. This means all events and room reservations are canceled, and the entire space will be closed.

In the meantime, be sure to look at our Facebook page for live events that you can stream right to your phone or device. We hope you all stay happy, healthy, and safe during this time and we look forward to opening our doors to our Community of Dreamers again soon!
