We hosted our firm Cocktail Party at the grayDUCK Gallery to bring together our clients, friends and colleagues. Jill S., owner and curator of the Gallery, welcomed us with perfectly arranged indoor and outdoor spaces that were both welcoming and functional. Her attention to the smallest details is exceptional. She mingled with our guests who had questions about the art on display and about her Gallery in general. All of our guests remarked on what an amazing venue we had chosen for our cocktail party. Jill even went the extra mile with helping us setup before and breakdown after our event. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice, and would highly recommend the grayDUCK Gallery for any social gathering.
We booked this space for our company holiday party for around 30 guests and it was awesome! We had a few tables set-up for our 3 self-serve bar and walking appetizers tables in addition to 5 cocktail style tables. The contemporary gallery including the art featured at the time of our party fit our "casual cocktail attire" theme perfectly. Jill was nothing but a great host and wonderful to work with, from the initial planning through the end of the night. We'd totally book this space again!
This is a great space! Clean, visually appealing, and inviting. We were able to have a good business meeting; the projection system onto an entire unadorned white wall was crisp and larger than expected. The clean projection allowed us to share information, but was also very engaging and well integrated into the space. The charm of the gallery space encouraged us to linger over conversations after we covered all of the points on our agenda. The host was helpful and friendly. She helped me find everything that I needed, and helped us to feel at home in the space. I would absolutely rent this space again.
