Space should be returned to the condition it was in when you arrived.
Everything was great with the venue. I didn’t run into many issues at all, and the ones I did run into were pretty easily resolved. Bill and everyone at the venue were great to me and my guests and although some things went wrong on my end of the event, Bill and his staff were great and completed everything as they said they would.
This was the perfect venue to host our son's graduation party. We had over 100 people and everyone said they loved the space as well. We appreciated the flexibility we were offered with the way the room was set up and bar options. Additionally, the fact that the staff was able to show a slideshow movie that we created made the night extra special. Bill and the other staff were so wonderful and pleasant to deal with. We would absolutely have another event here and some of our guests plan to as well. Thanks Bill, Slash and the other guy (sorry, didn't get your name) for a great night!
This place is amazing!!!! What an awesome experience! This place was perfect and the staff was amazing!! I was late for my event due to another space closing and the staff and owner kindly helped me and gave me more options then I could expect. My guess were outdone by the hospitality and the beauty of the place. I will forever be a customer of this business and will always refer it to anyone who needs an event place!!!!
Everything was great. Bill was super helpful before the event answering multiple emails I had. During setup Ray was there to answer any question and help and during the event everything went smoothly. Truly there is not one negative thing I could say. The space is amazing, the host is great if I have another party this size (about 150 ppl) I will not hesitate to book the space again.
Wow, this space was absolutely incredible to say the least. Every thing was perfect for my Comedy event, and everyone wanted to know how I snagged a location so professional. Go meeeee. Lol The host Bill, so helpful, cool, and informative. Everyone loved him! From booking and communicating through out the entire process up until the day of my event. I was so grateful to have had Bill as a host. A great bartender as well. Cleanliness 10 stars. Customer service 10 stars. Venue 10 stars (exceeded expectations). Staff 10 stars. Kitchen 10 stars. Just so cozy and awesome in every way! Thanks Bill I will be booking again! -Jules Happy client
Bill is great to work with and I would work with him again for future events. Thanks to Bill, the venue looked great and it was ready to go. My wife and guests loved the venue and the location. Several of the guests were inquiring information for possible future events as well.
