The HarMac Event Space resides in the historic Harper & McIntire building in downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

​Completed in 1922, the building was originally a warehouse and shipping facility for Harper & McIntire's industrial hardware.

The company also procured their own line of hand-crafted tools, coined "HarMac" - thus, our shared name.

In 2015, the property was purchased and restored to reflect its original industrial character and charm. 

In 2020, the second floor of the building was repurposed into a venue, by Travis Newell. No stranger to the event industry, Mr. Newell is also the owner of Unique Events, a respected event design and entertainment business.


Highlights of the event space include the building's exposed brick walls, natural light, original metalwork, and stately pillars. The HarMac has been meticulously designed to showcase it's industrial roots and stunning proportions.

The flexibility of this distinctive venue allows guests to enjoy it year-round, for many different uses, including weddings, private events, corporate functions, and more.

We offer a heightened bar experience with experienced, friendly bartenders, custom curated cocktails that you will love to look at almost as much as you love to drink, and drinks served in glass, not plastic.


​The HarMac is the perfect setting to sip a libation or catch up on conversations with beloved friends and family.

Let us show you the difference between ordering a drink and experiencing a true art form.




The HarMac is rooted in industrial charm, but offers you and your guests several modern amenities.


​Two adjoining spaces – 2,900 and 6,600 square feet, respectively – allow endless flexibility and combine to create a show stopping venue and performance space.

"We had the honor of being the very first wedding at the HarMac on October 10th. We could not have picked a better place or better people to work with. Travis, Kelli, and the entire team were so helpful and great to work with throughout the entire process.

This industrial building is so unique and unlike any other venue, the vibe of this place is so cool and classy. The hand-crafted cocktails were a hit and the experienced bartenders did a wonderful job serving all of our guests.

The Bridal suite had plenty of space for all of the girls to get hair and makeup done for the day. The groom suite also had so much room and was a great place for the guys to hangout.

Couldn’t recommend this place enough, you’ve got to check it out!!"
