“If 'Sconset is Nantucket's hidden gem, the Casino is the crown jewel of the island.”
The Siasconset Casino, or simply the Casino, was built in the fall of 1899 to fill the growing community’s need for a large event space. Throughout the early 1900s, the Casino played host to innumerable parties and theatrical performances. Fast forward 120 years and the Casino is still hosting a variety of events - from weddings to art openings and fundraisers to movie nights.The Casino has three main entertaining spaces, each with their own unique set of features. You’ll have access to whichever spaces you feel will provide the most enjoyable experience for you and your guests.
The East Deck - Located on the eastern side of the clubhouse and overlooking our championship court, the East Deck has direct access into the Main Hall by way of three enormous French doors. On the north end of the deck is our newly added bar. The East Deck and accompanying lawn is our primary exterior entertaining space with the ability to hold 200+ guests.
The South Patio - The southernmost end of the property plays host to the South Patio. Renovated in 2018, this entertaining space is surrounded by beautiful landscaping, brickwork, and views of our immaculate red clay tennis courts. The South Patio is a wonderful entertaining space for smaller groups with less than 100 guests.
The Main Hall - The pièce de résistance is undoubtedly the Casino’s Main Hall. With intricate lattice work adorning the ceiling and proscenium, the Main Hall is a sight to be seen. With the original building’s features still very much intact and emphasized by modern updates made in the past few years, the Main Hall truly transforms to fit whatever the vision. When used for a wedding reception, the space functions best with roughly 125 - 175 guests.
Adjacent to the Main Hall are two antechambers - the west chamber or Mary Gray Room is dedicated to catering, while the north chamber or Front Hall is furnished with cozy seating areas for guests looking for reprieve.
Unique to the Casino is the ability to assemble your own vendors and tailor the event to your exacting specifications. Recommendations can be made upon request.
