The Newton is home to three private event spaces with exclusive catering options by Chef Justin Beckett's Southern Rail Restaurant, and Changing Hands Bookstore's First Draft Book Bar.

The Newton is a unique venue conveniently located in Central Phoenix off the light rail. As an adaptive reuse project by the renowned developers Venue Projects LLC and John Douglas Architects, The Newton offers a modern but warm ambience with historic touches of its building's former roots, Phoenix's iconic Beef Eaters Restaurant. The Newton is a beautiful venue for parties, corporate events, mixers, showers, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies/receptions, meetings, conferences, non-profit events and more.  The Newton's event spaces are available for parties of 10 or more by reservation.
