Since the purchase of the building in 2010, Midtown has seen a complete overhaul and now showcases some of the city’s most modern developments. Now one of the trendiest districts in Rochester, Midtown is a community that offers creative food and beverage, modern architecture and green space. Midtown is located inside Center City where you’ll find independent theaters, small music halls and clubs, galleries, gourmet food and maker spaces.

Mod is situated perfectly in Center City, in view of Parcel 5. Planning your event at Mod during some of Rochester’s largest festivals will provide you and your guests the perfect mix of intimacy and excitement . You will have the benefits of a private enclosed space with the ability to view the festival’s event, as well as the freedom to step outside and enjoy local activity.
