My wife and I held our wedding reception at the Gallery. It was a wonderful space and a wonderful experience! CC and her team were extremely helpful, easy to work with, flexible, and supportive. The space was lovely and made our evening really special. Highly highly recommended!!!
The experience at the Design District Gallery Space was amazing! We are a french association and we hosted our annual party for the first time in a Gallery. The place is spacious, confortable, well-equipped for the caterers. I liked especially that we had several "rooms"for our guests. And the team is phenomenal! so helpful, so easy to work with, made our event very easy to organize because they were very open to our requests and very responsive. I really recommend this place and will book it again for sure!
This was a great space to host our company's annual reception of our clients, prospects, and vendors. The host worked well with our caterer and the process was easy. I would definitely book this place again.
