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!
Absolutely loved our experience working with Foley! The space was beautiful-- exactly as described-- and it was very helpful to have a staff member on-site to answer questions. 5/5 would recommend booking!
I used this space for a one-day art exhibition. This gallery was perfect. It is spacious, great lighting, and is situated in a wonderful location. Michael and Sherri were great! They were friendly, super helpful, accomadating, and quickly responded to all of the questions I had before the exhibition. Michael was there on the day of the exhibition to make sure everything went smoothly and he was nice enough to help with extra materials I needed such as an outlet, plates, and etc. He really assisted in making this exhibition a success. I highly recommend booking space! I would definitely book this space again. Thank you so much Sherri and Michael!
Michael was amazing from start to finish. He was on site to accommodate all of our needs. It was a pleasure to do business with him The space was beautiful, and huge! We were given the option to remove the artwork off the walls. The walls were classic white and with the dimmer switch for the lights, the mood was perfect. used this space for a soft launch for my website, New York Artists Exchange. I would love to use this space again in September.
