Gather your friends and family and head to Eastern State for an exclusive experience inside the abandoned penitentiary before or after your Night Tour.

Select locations inside the 11-acre penitentiary complex are available for private rentals. With its mix of massive, crumbling cellblocks with vaulted ceilings and rarely seen hidden industrial spaces like workshops and mess halls, Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site (ESPHS) is sure to provide a truly one-of-a-kind backdrop for your gathering.

Arrive early, and enjoy a happy hour, complete with drinks and snacks, before your Night Tour. Or stay late and sip on a night cap!

All rentals include a set portion of self-serve beverages and “Philadelphia Favorites” treats.

Event rentals are for private, pre-existing groups only and events cannot be advertised to the public. Tickets cannot be sold to the general public. Eastern State will not advertise nor publicly endorse any private event rentals. If it is determined tickets are being sold for an existing site rental, it will be immediately canceled without a refund.

Eastern State stands as a stabilized ruin without climate control. Events operate rain or shine, and we encourage guests to dress for the weather!
