This venue was incredible! John was more helpful than I could have imagined. He and the venue provided us with anything and everything that we needed to make our holiday party a success! The venue was exactly what is shown in the images and I would definitely book again!
We had a great experience here. John was quick to respond to my questions over email and by text. On the day of our event, he was there in person and offered a lot of guidance about how to adjust lights, where to set up tables, etc. He also provided us with two helpful night managers who made sure that the event ran smoothly while we concentrated on being with our guests. And everyone I spoke with said "this space is awesome, how'd you find out about it".
This space was very nearly perfect. We had an off-site for 50 people, and used the space with its screen and theater-style seats. If we had not also included two circles for break-out groups, the space would have felt spacious. Because we had those two circles, we could have used about 3 more feet in width. Aside from that, the space was very easy to use. We had caterers set up in the kitchen for minimum disruption to the meetings. The restaurant-style kitchen is fully-stocked with serving dishes, coffee, tea, water jugs, a cooler and pretty much any utensil you would need. The host, John, was extremely helpful. He arrived each day at 7 am and helped teh caterer get situated. When I arrived at 7:15, the coffee had already been made and put out, as had the water. He was also very flexible about set up, supplies that he had on hand, and working with our consultants who came to see the space before our booking time. There were only two major downsides. First, parking. You either need to spend $30 per day to park in St. Luke's hospital garage, or risk the meters on Van Ness or Valencia. Second, security. The neighborhood is too rough to leave the door propped open, and we didn't get the access code to give out. Anyone who wanted to enter the space had to call someone already inside. We were there on an especially cold day, and the heat was loud enough that it made it hard to hear soft-spoken guests. On most days, it probably wouldn't need to be turned up as high so it wouldn't cause as much of an issue. We ended up turning it on and off to alternate heat/silence. All in all, I would definitely rent this space again! It was a fun space with quirky upstairs rooms that were useful as lactation rooms and the host was very helpful and flexible.
Where do I begin? John was an absolutely amazing and accommodating host! We had a team of about 55 with 5 different break out groups for an all day working off-site... and I don't think it could have gone any better! Not only did the space have every amenity that we needed, but it was so FULL of personality - my team LOVED it. Also - amazing free coffee... major bonus points! Thank you John - it was truly perfect and our day went without a hitch! Cheers!!
This space was amazing! It was perfect for our event (60ppl). John and his staff were so helpful throughout the whole process. I hope we have another event where I can use this space again!
This was an excellent space for our large (55 person) family dinner! I did all the cooking in their amazing kitchen and it was so easy. They have very tool and serving piece you could need available - all I had to bring was the food! Ann-Marie was an amazing hostess. She was super helpful, friendly and really easy to work with. I will certainly keep them in mind for my next event!
Communication with John and Astra was fantastic. They were very quick to respond to all inquiries and also were pro-active in working with us to ensure our event was a hit! The venue itself suited us perfectly for our Easter service and was clean and well maintained. On the day of the event, Astra was extremely helpful and supportive to our team and all who attended. We will not hesitate to hold another service at this venue.
I had a solo art show here. There was wall space (brick walls) with enough room for 15 paintings, max 25x18 dimensions. The art hangs from wires attached where the ceiling meets the wall. Astra, the house manager is mega helpful. She really knows everything about the space and is a pro at helping type plan your party. She even found 2 food a mind beverage staff members for us! Thank you so much for such a smooth event.
The space was beautiful and worked well for our popup dinner event. The guests liked the ambience. The house manager was present and very helpful throughout the event. We had a slight misunderstanding relating to a trapeze performance, and the owner tried to be helpful. Unfortunately, we didn't go through with the performance, but it didn't matter to the quality of the event that much in the end.
The space is really unique. We used it for a photo-shoot and so there were lots of interesting spaces to use as backdrops. We also booked it in the morning and the front room got great light. We were also shown how to use the stereo/speaker system for our own use during the shoot which was unexpected and a really great addition. Another unexpected convenience was the use of the kitchen to lay out snacks for the models and crew. When we got there, they set up water and glasses for us --super helpful. One concern, I guess, is that it was a little unclear as to what spaces we were allowed to use. For instance, there is an upstairs. (We asked about the backyard and were told that was fine.) And at various times throughout the shoot, we'd hear the door shut and know that there was someone else there. (Which is fine.. we were just a bit surprised. Perhaps next time a heads up?) Overall, really great experience. Thanks!
