Hart & Main is a one-of-a-kind wedding and event venue opening in Spring of 2022 with indoor and outdoor options to fit any occasion. This space is well equipped with a full commercial kitchen and bar, a beautiful rooftop deck, bridal and groom suites and will feature a Mid-century vibe.  

​The owners, Rob and Lisa Younkin, purchased an old, family-owned auto repair shop in March of 2018, intending to build a small apartment complex, only to find out that idea did not work well with the lot size. So they decided to put their heads together, and the idea of a wedding and event venue took off. From there comes Hart & Main. The vision for Hart & Main is to create a purpose-built, versatile and differentiated event space for people to enjoy.

Rob and Lisa enlisted the help of a highly qualified and experienced team who excel in design, wedding planning, and a distinguished restaurateur to meet the needs of all clientele. In addition, curating such a team has created a beautiful space while also hosting many differing events. 

The flexibility and versatility of the space are already attracting interest and demand for a variety of events. As a result, we are now booking for Spring of 2022.

A flexible and versatile space

Rob and Lisa Younkin have been actively investing in real estate since 2012, when they purchased a single-family rental in Palmdale, CA. Since that time, they have gone on to acquire ownership interests in over 20 properties. Rob and Lisa have invested in a diverse set of properties, ranging from passive investments with Rob’s corporate finance clients on multifamily assets to active investments in residential/multifamily, self-storage and retail. Given Rob’s upbringing as the son of a contractor and his prior ownership of a construction company, Rob and Lisa prefer investments that require significant upgrades/improvements as well as new development.

As residents of Santa Clarita since 2005, they have the advantageous perspective as the “target customer", which provides an enhanced lens into what the community needs and wants. As a result, the couple has gone on to acquire another property on Main Street and is currently under contract to purchase a 3rd property. The investment thesis is that a clustered investment approach will benefit all the assets concurrently as well as individually as we advance the City of Santa Clarita’s vision to turn Main Street in to an Arts and Entertainment destination. Beyond real estate, Rob and Lisa are focused on raising their three children to be good-hearted human beings. They have 2 dogs and are extremely fortunate to have both sets of parents alive, healthy, and living with 10 minutes of them. They work hard for the present and future benefit of their family, just like their parents and grandparents have done for them.
