A perfect spot for a small corporate meeting, wedding rehearsal dinner, or just a fun night out with some good friends.

Sunset Lanes – website – Capacity: 400

Our final venue on our Beaverton Event Venue highlight reel is Sunset Lanes, a local bowling facility.  With such large capacity, Sunset Lanes is perfect for hosting large corporate events where the focus in fun. Prices are based around two hours of unlimited bowling, but the venue offers multiple packages and additional services. Bowling, might seem a little hokey for an event, but anywhere where there is food, beverage, and fun is an excellent candidate for an event location. If you plan on inviting whole families, the bowling can help keep the little ones entertained as well.
