Typically used for making film and video productions, this space is also appropriate for events like baby showers, especially if you’re interested in taking lots of pictures (and aren’t we all?). Rental fees include the usage of backdrops like a live plant wall and a sound system, and there’s even a fog machine. One of the best aspects of this venue is that it includes a rare outdoor space for your guests to enjoy.

High ceilings, bright light, and historic brick walls are only a few of the beautiful features of this downtown Columbus condominium that you could rent to host your baby shower. One of the best aspects of this particular venue is that it has minimal furniture—just a two stools, two folding chairs, and a small table – so the open layout is entirely flexible for your personal setup preferences. Alcohol is permissible but regardless of whether you’re imbibing, guests must be 21 years old or older to be in this space.

7. An eclectic Grandview Heights gallery

A favorite Columbus venue is this award-winning art gallery called CRAFT & VINYL in the trendy Grandview neighborhood. This is a mixed-use space including a record album store, music posters and memorabilia, a craft beer bar, and a pro recording studio. There’s also a giant 12’ screen you can use to project embarrassing photos of mom—if you’re so inclined—and a fabulous sound system. All ages are welcome in this space and external food or catering must be preapproved. This is definitely one of the best places to host a baby shower—or really any gathering—in the city.

8. A bright co-working space

This co-working space actually includes two options for small gatherings from which the host can select. One is more of a conference room style, but so pretty and well-appointed that it could easily convert into a space for a quiet baby shower or similarly mellow get-together. Another rentable other room in the co-working building is a peaceful library which can also facilitate a pleasant intimate event. Just let the host know which you would prefer when bringing your Columbus baby shower ideas to life.
