The Park Loft

It’s been a 20 year personal and professional journey for creators | owners | operators Trip and Alecia Brooks. Blending Trip’s extensive development, building and historic restoration experience with Alecia’s theater production, music and photography background, they have created the Park Loft Experience. So much more than a venue, Park Loft is a place to celebrate life and love.

Trip and Alecia’s intention is to produce a one-of-a-kind venue with world class cuisine and spirits and the most genuine hospitality, resulting in a truly exceptional and beyond memorable celebration.
