Your guests will be ushered through the historic United Bank Building lobby with its soaring coffered ceilings to either a staircase or elevator and be transported to what was originally the bank's counting room, now Crop's prep kitchen.
Just off the kitchen is the actual bank vault (the second largest between New York and Chicago) featuring the original front and back doors weighing a combined 160,000 pounds.
The industrial space features white metal walls, large sepia photos of Cleveland architectural icons, and a small 1,000 pound vault where the bank's most wealthy customers kept important documents and valuables, including the bank's president.
One original patron of the bank once told us a woman with a journal would sit in the atrium just outside the vault. When customers wanted access to their safety deposit boxes housed within the vault, she would retrieve the valuables and guide them to one of six small, private rooms to conduct their business.
All this historic whimsy has been expertly preserved providing a spectacular, candle-lit venue for any occasion.
