This was my first time using Peerspace, and the experience blew my expectations out of the water. The space is perfect. The open layout and white walls allowed us to set up our own decorations. The two rooms were perfect, as one could be set up for general space and the other for drink/refreshment tables. We also brought in a DJ, projector, and had tables for food and drinks. It comfortably fit ~100 people and at no time was the event overpacked. Michael and Sherri were terrific hosts. They helped us with the planning of the event, provided floor layouts, and allowed us to visit before the event. During the event, they were both there and cheerfully provided help and any loose items that we may have forgotten. I would definitely have an event here again. The location is fabulous, and helps people traveling in from different areas.
The Foley gallery was a great place for our event- an intimate dance show with about 50 people watching. Leading up to the event, Michael was responsive to any questions I had and they were able to meet any requests I had (folding chairs, clearing the space). I would highly recommend for an intimate event or a small performance if that’s what you are in the market for.
It was an amazing space and my event was a success. The staff was amazing. There were some last minute move arounds I didn’t like but overall I couldn’t have chosen a great space.
Michael was a wonderful host and the space was perfect for our event! He was extremely flexible and willing to help us by painting the walls and anything else we needed. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique, art gallery space and hope to host an event here again soon!
The gallery was exactly what we were hoping it would be. The space looks just like the pictures, and it photographs really well. Michael was a great host! Replied promptly and was great to work with. Would book again!
I have to say I am extremely grateful for Michael. He was an amazing host, was always very communicative and supportive. Michael was very helpful to me & my guest. For it to be my first event, he made sure I felt comfortable and everything ran smoothly. Would definitely book again. :)
The space is amazing!!! Michael was incredibly helpful with making every detail absolutely perfect for my runway show. My attendees were mesmerized by the intimacy of the space as well as the lighting and overal set up for my small but impactful brand launch (runway show). I would definitely call on the Foley Gallery to host my shows in the future. A+++++
