Nice space perfect for the needs of our production. The manager of the space stayed at the event the whole time, but he is a very nice man and very friendly. I would very much recommend using this space!
The location was perfect for prepping our shoot in the park, easy access to the street for loading EQ and trunks, spacious room, they provided two tables and chairs for us to use. Cindy was lovely and accommodating! However the owner of the property (who was also nice) seemed a bit agitated or unexperienced hosting, he scolded our fashion assistant for using an outlet in a foyer that was just around the corner from the space we rented to prep out of, and then especially when our messenger service was delayed in arriving to pick up trunks, after 20 minutes passed our booking time requested we pay an extra hour, which I agreed to, however our stylist who stayed behind to wait had to endure an earful from him about it. Overall good experience, would only recommend for small productions.
