Home of Jacksonville’s Unique Meeting and Event Venue – 927 Events

927 Events is one of Jacksonville’s most distinctive meeting and event venues. The two-floor venue features many custom details that any guest will appreciate. The exposed brick walls and loft-style windows are accented with hardwood flooring and custom tile designs. Both floors of this historic building feature unique décor including antiques, one-of-a-kind sculptures, custom motorcycles and other unusual memorabilia. Originally a feed store and warehouse when it opened 100 years ago, all the floors have been refinished, the original brick walls have been restored and 21st-century plumbing and electrical service has been installed. Many of the current fixtures in 927 were salvaged from the inventory. In 1939, Standard Sales of Florida moved into the downtown location. Standard Sales was the precursor to the BJ’s and Costco-style membership stores, offering a variety of household items at near wholesale prices. All the the price tags were in an alphabetic code, and you had to have a special card to translate the cost. The item delivery chute system still remains, along with the Standard Sales gigantic walk-in safe. Today, when you first enter 927 W Forsyth, a.k.a. Events, you will find 5,000 square feet of spacious meeting and event space featuring a mix of urban and traditional influences. This space is customizable for seated dining, a cocktail reception or even a corporate team building outing – complete with ping-pong and pool tables, an entertainment stage and more.
