A Private Event on Level 3 of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Rent the Rock


You march to the beat of a different drummer - and so should your events. Whether it’s your client or employee retreat, wedding, off-site meeting or holiday party; we can house anywhere from 20 to 2,000 people. Check out our virtual tour here

Get the party started by contacting the sales department at (216) 515-1933 or [email protected]. Or, fill out our Rental Request Form. We can’t guarantee that you’ll run into a rock star while you’re here, but we’ll certainly treat you like one.

Curious about how the museum expansion will affect your event?

  • The existing property and pyramid will be able to host private events through all of 2024.
  • Starting in 2025, the expansion will begin to connect to the existing property.
    • From early 2025 – mid 2026 the museum will not be able to host weddings, proms, or events of 800+ people
    • For events of 20-800 people, we can still host you! All exhibits will remain online through construction and Levels 2-6 will remain untouched. Please contact us to find out more.
  • Baker Hall will be complete mid-2026. We will start taking reservations in the Spring of 2025.

It is about creating a culture that unites rock and roll and its origins in Cleveland with food. It engages the lakefront and Cleveland with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame through food, music, and community.
