About Events with Mandara Hospitality Group
Nestled in the historic Adler Building on the southwest corner of Pack Square, Posana is the final iteration of a space that has, in its lifetime, housed cafes, pharmacies, and even a Masonic Lodge. The vast windows in the main dining room give diners a front row seat to the bustle of energy in downtown Asheville, with its many street performers and pedestrians from all walks of life.The interior of the restaurant features high ceilings and rustic modern architecture. The custom ironwork, exposed brick, and repurposed barn-wood floors are softly lit by many sparkling Edison bulbs, and give the space a cozy yet refined atmosphere. If you proceed to the back of the restaurant, you’ll find the Mandara Gallery, a newly-remodeled private dining area. Modern chandeliers warmly illuminate a wide space that comfortably accommodates up to 48 guests for a plethora of events, from intimate conference table meetings to elegant wedding receptions- and sometimes ceremonies! The sophisticated neutral color palette of the room invites creative decorative and floral designs, making the room as versatile as it is beautiful.Additional Amenities:Farm-to-Table seasonal ingredientsA/V available in Mandara Gallery"Count on NC" certified staff membersWine pairings available from our award-winning wine listROOMS/BOOKING OPTIONSA.
