South Plaza and Olive Building Terrace

  • Colburn South Plaza
  • Fifth Floor Terrace

The South Plaza can accommodate large groups for outdoor dinners, receptions, or more casual events such as lunches for school groups. The Olive Building’s fifth floor terrace includes indoor and outdoor spaces with views of downtown LA. Permits may be required for large outdoor receptions and additional security staff are required when serving alcohol. Permits are the responsibility of the renter. 


Depending on the layout, furniture, and design of your reception/event, the South Plaza can accommodate up to 200 people. Also dependent on the design of your event, the Olive Building Lobby and Terrace can accommodate up to 50 people each so a total of 100 people if both spaces are being used with an open layout.  


The Colburn Café offers a wide variety of catering options for all types of events including receptions, office lunches, breakfast meetings, and more. You can choose from the existing catering menu or request a custom proposal. Reception space fees will be waived if the Colburn Café is providing the catering for your event.
