Old Brick Commercial Kitchen

Owner: Old Brick

Kitchen Description: Old Brick is a community venue in the heart of downtown Iowa City. Our mission is primarily to serve the community as a gathering space for the community, students and non-profits. We are located at the corners of Clinton and Market Sts just across from the business buildings on the edge of campus. We have parking available to renters of the kitchen during their rental period. We typically host the Agape Café on Wednesday mornings during the school year (with prep all day Tuesday), otherwise we block times during events and weekend weddings. The kitchen is often available in the evening and almost all summer (except Saturday weddings).
