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.
Foley Gallery was the perfect venue for our pop-up art gallery event. Michael, the owner and host, was extremely helpful and ensured our event was a huge success. With the help of him and his team, they were able to help hang our art, and take it down quickly and seamlessly. I could not have executed this event without Michael. The space was the perfect size, and has a great feel of the LES. The location was also perfect. We are so happy with how our event turned out, and look forward to hosting another ever here in the future.
I booked the Foley Gallery for my best friend’s going away party. The communication, from inquiry to confirming my booking, was entirely seamless. The Foley staff was kind and super helpful in the days leading up to the event. On the day of the event, everything went on without a hitch. The space was just as advertised. Staff went about and beyond to make sure my event materialized as planned. Would recommend this space for multiple types of events!!
The place was perfect for my event. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. The place has so much to offer; a lot of supplies . I loved everything about it. I will do many more events here and im definitely recommending to my friends. Please keep it up. ❤️
The Foley Gallery was the perfect venue to have a birthday party and Michael was such a reliable and an accommodating host. He was always prompt with his replies from the very beginning and answered any questions I had. The gallery also had large tables, a good amount of chairs, and bluetooth enabled speakers for use. I would definitely recommend this space to others!
The Foley Gallery is such an incredible space! The hosts were super responsive to requests for info, and worked with us to make our event shine. Everything was exactly as expected, and very honestly, we could not have pulled off such a great event without their hard work. As someone who does multiple events a year around the world, this place stands out as an absolute dream venue!
By far one of the best experiences I have had booking a venue. Michael is an excellent host and was very accommodating. He responds very quickly and helps out the night of with a smile! We had art viewing and music listening party and this space set the perfect tone! I recommend this venue and Michael to anyone who wants to have a smooth night in a very clean space!
