Events at the Sweetest Destination on Earth
Host your next event in the new Sweet Pete’s Building. Located in the restored historic Seminole Club in the heart of Jacksonville’s urban core, this 22,000 square foot building is home to the largest candy factory in Northeast Florida. Featuring 3 unique candy retail spaces, a full service restaurant and bar, and a specialty dessert bar looking over the candy factory, how could your event get any sweeter? With more than 3 million dollars in renovations, this historic building has been recently returned to its former glory while adding sophisticated whimsy befitting of a bigger-than-life candy store.
Our one of a kind space can accommodate an array of events, from intimate groups of 25 to groups greater than 200 and, likewise, our space is unique in its ability to take your event from business sophisticated to sophisticated whimsy that will speak to the kid in all of us.
Our event hardware inventory is extensive and features tables, chairs, moveable bars, and an abundance of built in décor. Our facility is within walking distance of a large amount of street parking spaces, which are free on evenings and weekends. Additionally, we have negotiated special rates with the city’s parking garage that is in a one block radius, as well as created relationships with our preferred valet service that can be added to any event. All food, beverage, and service are provided The Candy Apple Café & Cocktails.
