Yes, I would book again.

This event space was the perfect raw space for our pop-up art exhibit and panel discussion. We were really able to transform the space. Guests walked away from the night really impressed with the space. Juan and Laura were great throughout the process!


Yes, I would book again.

The space was great and the accommodations were exactly what we needed for our corporate event!


Yes, I would book again.

We loved working with Juan and Laura! They were very accommodating and helpful. This space is very versatile, and we were happy with the amount of freedom we had to set it up as we wanted.


Yes, I would book again.

Great venue. Very accommodating staff


Yes, I would book again.

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS how truly wonderful it is to work with these truly wonderful people. After a last minute cancellation (through peerspace!), these heroes jumped in just 3 days before the event to save the party. Not only were they incredibly responsive and professional, but went far above the call of duty and were incredibly helpful and gracious. And not only does the space include the services of their resident event manager, but Juan is by far one of the most delightful people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. For instance, Juan emailed me to let me know when the equipment deliveries would arrive and that he'd be there to handle it before I could even ask if it was okay for it to be delivered in the first place. Twice! AND, he handled the equipment pickup on his own, and even handled a heated discrepancy with a hostile moving company without even getting me involved...! I could go on and on, but believe me: you will not regret booking this venue and working with these absolutely wonderful people. And Juan, thanks again for everything.
