The Tri-Cities’ newest event center is scheduled to open this fall.
At Michele’s Event Center at 2323 Henderson Loop is in north Richland off Highway 240.
The 4,000-square-foot building will feature a restaurant, lounge area, dance floor, indoor stage and private party room.
Owner Michele Abrams originally planned to open the facility as a night club but expanded her vision to include weddings and other special events, from reunions to corporate parties.
The facility includes a bridal room and outside wedding venue with outside stage.
The restaurant will be open to the public Thursday through Saturday with frequent live music.
At Michele’s planned $1.5 million in renovations for the building that will be able to accommodate 100 people inside.
The stucco modern architecture complements the Hollywood glam interior design, Abrams said.
Cliff Thorn Construction of Richland is the general contractor.
Jason Archibald of Archibald & Co. Architects in Richland and Virigina Pitts of Resource Designs designed the building.
