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!
Great experience and great venue. Barbara and Brian were a delight. They had not hosted a party/fundraiser quite like ours but worked with us to meet our needs always finding a positive path forward. The venue is very nice with hardwood floors, a spacious bar area and high ceilings. Also great that it is not too far from BART and right in San Francisco. The layout is also versatile. After decorating, it looked exactly as we wanted. A space with awkward divisions or short ceilings would not have accommodated us so well. For the party, we needed to put up a lot of decorations and lighting. We also had a fairly large sound system for our DJs and MC. This meant we had to load in a lot of stuff. Luckily, the venue has parking immediately adjacent to the building making set-up and strike easy. Even with all the decorations, sound and lighting, our sleepy crew were able load everything out in one hour. One really tiny thing is that the electrical system isn’t very new. This wasn’t a problem for us despite the big sound system but something we needed to be cognizant of. While the party was going on, Brian and Barbara were present and available if we’d needed them. The staff they hired were all professional and courteous - no complaints and no drama on either end. Our ~300 guests were very happy too. They complimented the venue for its looks, amenities and the fun vibe we were able to create. Mission Rehearsal has ample bathrooms, a changing space, a coat check and storage. These features allowed everyone (guests, hosts, organizers) to have a great time. In sum, we really liked the venue and would gladly host another event here. The best part was working with great, solution-oriented people like Barbara and Brian.
