White walls and natural light are all the rage these days, and The Holden Room at Parallel in downtown Minneapolis delivers. The nearly 4,150-square-foot warehouse-turned-venue can be transformed into a space to meet nearly every event need. A refurbished industrial space dating back to 1955, the building was designed by the architectural firm that designed the iconic Foshay Tower. It previously served as home to both the Ford McNutt Co. and Brin Northwestern Glass, both glass and mirror manufacturers. The Holden Room maintains ties to its past with its original polished-concrete floors, exposed steel beams, industrial track lighting, and a huge glass garage door that lets in tons of light. The venue also comes with a catering work space and can accommodate 250 seated guests or up to 450 standing guests.
