One of the advantages Penn Social has by being a premier music venue is our in-house production capabilities are second-to-none. With a custom-tuned PA system and digital video distribution system all managed by our amazing production staff, your event will have all the technological bells and whistles you can possibly imagine. 

Our main event space is a 10,000 square foot room with three mechanically activated projection screens, an expandable stage, theatrical lighting as well as Ketra house lighting. The main PA system utilizes Martin Torus Constant Curvature arrays driven by a Yamaha CL5 digital console. The entire venue is DANTE- enabled so as to achieve a fully customizable audio network. We’ve also installed an Elan 4K Video over IP distribution system so your content can be viewed in a countless number of ways.
