Catalyst’s 1,600 square feet of private dining and meeting space is lined with natural wood and floor-to-ceiling windows in the heart of Technology Square just steps away from Kendall and Central Squares. The private meeting rooms boast state-of-the-art amenities such as flat screen televisions and drop down projection screens; which are tucked behind wooden panels when not in use; high-speed internet access and sophisticated furnishings.       
The flexibility of the private space’s design allows for the three rooms to be opened up to one larger space or a combination of two rooms using contemporary, soundproof NanaWalls, which opaque for privacy.

The Crick, Franklin and Watson Rooms (named for the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA in 1953; a nod to the great history of the neighborhood) may accommodate 120 guests seated at rounds, 200 for a cocktail reception or 120 set theater style.

In addition there is also a beautiful two-way fireplace lounge, which may be reserved for semi-private events. Experience the ease of planning an event with professionals in a state of the art facility with inspired, sustainable cuisine.
