Originally built in 1911, the Leftbank Annex is a refurbished industrial space that has existed in many different forms: first as a parking garage, then as a welding and painting school, followed by an airplane parts manufacturing facility and other incarnations. Now, it’s a stunning spot for saying “I do” in Portland. The space features two large rooms on two different levels: the Clubroom, which can accommodate as many as 500 guests; and the Greatroom, which can host as many as 900 guests. The Leftbank Annex is also committed to sustainability. The venue is operated by Elephants Delicatessen, a certified B Corporation, and has a list of preferred caterers, all of which share Leftbank’s passion for earth-friendly enterprises.
