The gallery was the perfect venue for our screenplay reading and reception, and Michael could not have been a more accommodating host! A wonderful experience from start to finish.
Michael was a gracious and excellent host. He was helpful in booking our party--even though it was over a year in advance (we loved the space so much we had to book it!) Micheal answered all of our questions promptly as well as those of our party vendors (DJ/Bartender/Photographer). The space is large and unique, with a fun vibe. Perfect size for our cocktail party of about 65. Definitely recommended.
Had a wonderful experience with my proposal here. Michael was thoughtful, helpful, and very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. The venue itself is beautiful, spacious, versatile, and clean. It could not have been a better experience and I'm thankful that I was able to rent this space!
We held a catered book launch party in the space, and the host, Michael and his team, could not have been more helpful or responsive. They accommodated all of our requests, helped us with logistics and provided valuable advice. Its a fair price for a great space in a great part of the city. Very positive experience.
The Foley Gallery was the perfect location for our rehearsal dinner and welcome party. Michael and his team were fantastic, and helped make the evening perfect.
Five stars all around! Michael was an amazing host! Working with him and Sherri was so easy and they were so hospitable. Their communication was very quick, the venue was beautiful and the event went off without a hitch. We hosted a book launch event in the space and Michael was onsite to provide support and ensure everything went perfectly. All of my guests could not stop raving about the venue! I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants to impress their guests. Very easy to get to also via public transportation. Will def book again for book 2!
Great experience! Hosted an incredible dinner for family and friends. Michael was amazing and very accommodating. The space as well lends itself to a naturally comfortable and warm experience.
