THE MERINO LOFT

Located on the second floor of our historic weaving building, the Merino Loft offers a one-of-a-kind setting. Ample natural light from floor to ceiling windows, stunning exposed brick, and historic architecture create an atmosphere of energy and inspiration. With over seven-thousand square feet of versatile event space, and accommodations for up to 225 guests, it’s the ideal setting for your special event.

ELECTRIC THREAD

Quaint, cool, & whiskey for days

Our Social Club, located next to the lobby along the millrace stream, is an electric building turned lounge that is quaint, cool, and the ultimate hang-out in Amana. Designed with a nod to its beginnings, the Electric Thread’s modern industrial atmosphere, outdoor patio, and signature craft cocktails make it the ideal spot for intimate private parties up to 30 people.

THE CARDING STUDIO

Private & versatile with eclectic charm

Located in the original millwright workshop, this unique space holds up to 50 people with tables and chairs. On-site, but just steps away from the main hotel, the Studio offers a private space perfect for any gathering. Make the space your own, plan a private dinner, or customize a happy hour.

YOU’LL FIND US NESTLED ALONG SIDE THE MILLRACE IN AMANA, A MERE 30 MINUTES FROM BOTH IOWA CITY AND CEDAR RAPIDS, SURROUNDED BY FUN SHOPS, UNIQUE RESTAURANTS, AND ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENT OPPORTUNITIES.
