Polka Your Pants Off!

The Polka Room bursts with happiness and energy, the two walls of windows streaming in plenty of sunshine. Our largest meeting room at 3,250 sq. ft., the Polka Room is the most flexible space at Catalyst Ranch. Although the typical group size is 30-50 people, customized room setups easily accommodate interactive teambuilding activities, large merchandise displays, graphic facilitation stations and presentations for up to 110 attendees. In addition to the main seating area, the Polka Room has seven breakout areas sprinkled around the perimeter of the room, including a 300 square foot bonus space called The Harem, a client favorite! Your team will have plenty of room to stretch out to work individually or in small groups or even laying down on a pile of pillows.

For groups which require extra wall space, we put up custom made plasticore sheets and 8 ft. long rolling dry erase boards. A vintage 1940s refrigerator anchors the in-room beverage station with plenty of cool refreshments and a vintage tiki bar provides an assortment of teas. Don’t worry, there’s also plenty of fair-trade coffee.
