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.

Amazing space in the heart of Harlem. Jake was a great host- anything we needed or any questions we had he was quick to respond. Would and will book again! Thanks so much Jake!!
Jake, was great person to coordinate with for the event. Made sure I needs were addressed before and after. I scheduled a site walkthru beforehand. My guest and I thought it was the perfect location for the vibe of my wine tasting.
