We've rented the space for one week and it was absolutely fantastic! We used the venue to demo our technology to potential investors. The huge hall with its big open space and high ceilings was perfect for our purposes. There are available parking spots right in front of the venue, there is an extra room we could use for private meetings and several bathrooms. The venue is a funky space with everything we needed and more. We could not have asked for any better hosts - so helpful, supportive, professional, kind and always available when needed. Don't let me start talking about the food they are making. Absolutely delicious! The hosts helped us with any last-minute preparations and made our event successful. Violetta and Gabriele are absolutely the best and we would rent the space again in a heartbeat!!
The team at this location were amazing! Super helpful and accommodating, even helping with any last minute things I had forgotten. It is a fun space, and we enjoyed a break from typical Hotel venues. The food was really good, high quality, fresh, and went down great with my group. Thank you!
