About


LEX 530 Metropolitan Event Center

Bathed in light, LEX 530 is a new, modern urban event center in the newly revitalized River District on the east bank of the Elkhart River in downtown Elkhart, Indiana. The bright, eclectic center, located at 530 E. Lexington Avenue, has an urban vibe with eight large windows and 18-foot barreled ceilings. The event center resembles urban loft space with round duct work, track lighting and vinyl plank flooring. LEX 530 can accommodate intimate parties for as few as 30 friends in our private dining area or larger affairs in our main event room for as many as 250. Corporate events, not-for-profit galas, weddings, bridal and baby showers, or private parties are all perfectly suited for LEX 530. The event center has a new licensed commercial kitchen similar to many restaurants. The center’s liquor license is currently a 2-way permit which allows us to serve beer and wine at events, and allows for carry out if guests want to purchase some of Carl Tiedemann’s excellent boutique wines while they are at an event.

The LEX 530 Metropolitan Event Center is owned by Elkhart natives Carl and Emilie Tiedemann. Carl Tiedemann is the founder of the Tiedemann Group of companies which has an array of real estate, construction and wine distribution companies including Tiedemann Wines and Glenwood Cellars Wines.
