From the deep cultural wellspring of the Harlem neighborhood descend into an evocative richly textured space. The century old space has been stripped to its foundational elements. Native granite schist stone walls intertwine with exposed brick, Carnegie steel beams and a hand-trowled concrete floor. Two massive rustic tables hand crafted from repurposed wooden beams salvaged from a 150 year old church center the space. Morning sunlight pours through the exterior wrought iron fence through 8 large windows allowing abstract shadow shapes to seemingly dance upon surfaces. Dangling wire caged Edison filament bulbs give a warm glow. Contemporary soft touches of drapery and furniture compliment the roughhewn bones of the space. The ~ 1000 sq. foot space accommodates up to 33 people for meetings, meals and other gatherings. Located three blocks from the 2/3 Express and B/C trains, a couple dozen feet from the M2 bus stop, we are three blocks from Olmsted & Vaux's urban masterpieces Central and Morningside Parks. A block from 8th Avenue - Frederick Douglass Boulevard corridor - the south Harlem neighborhood is now dotted with cafes, restaurants and bars ranging from Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster & Streetbird to legendary Minton's Playhouse. Space includes two 11' long timber tables and seating for 25 people. There are 3 additional 6' folding tables along with rolling 6' bar height butcher block table available if needed. *Additional Options: Kitchen + Staging/Prep Area + Video/Audio + Chairs Basic kitchen area of approx. 175 sq. feet with an induction range + convection oven, two compartment sink, microwave, and stainless steel prep counters is available for an additional cost of $35 per hour.

Another amazing experience at this space! Jake is very accommodating and makes it easy to work in the space. Great communication up to day of event and great new sound system. If doing a dinner the kitchen is great to work in with plenty of space. It’s also nice that is separate from gorgeous dining space. Very intimate space.
