Mills Hardware

Mills Hardware is a unique and award-winning event new event space in Hamilton with a special focus on local and community groups.

With exposed brick and soaring ceilings, the venue has a 144-person capacity main room, complete with a stage, lighting, sound, projection, and a full-service bar. This performance space can be used for art openings, book launches, live music performances, theatre, dance, readings, lectures, corporate meetings and functions, wedding receptions, yoga, media events, you name it. Professional acoustic treatments lend the room a full and rich sound and the venue's audio-visual amenities can make any event a show-stopper.

Mills also provides office space for Hamilton arts and community groups at reasonable rates. Both the Hamilton Fringe Festival and Centre Français are headquartered in our building.

In addition, four basement rooms are available for rent — perfect for small group rehearsals (music or theatre), temporary artist studios, or any other arts-related need.

Mills Hardware is managed and booked by Sonic Unyon Records. You may know us from our indie record label, as well as Supercrawl, Because Beer, Seven Sundays in Gage Park, and the Hamilton Blues & Roots Festival. Don't know us from any of those? Then, hello — it's a pleasure to meet you.

If you have any questions about Mills Hardware or would like a tour, please leave a message for us here or email us at millshardwarehamilton [at] gmail.com.

A community-based performance space for art, theatre, dance, live music, speakers, and more.
