Working with Holly was a fantastic experience. She was very accommodating and the space was exactly what our team needed. She went above and beyond making sure we had the tools required to do our work.
The space was beautiful, very true to the photos. It was spacious and a great place to film a corporate video. Holly was very easy to work with. She was attentive and available throughout the day, but not intrusive at all. We had a terrific experience and highly recommend the space.
Overall the experience was fantastic! The space is great, Holly, the studio manager, was awesome and so accommodating. Beyond the wonderful hospitality, the light the studio gets is absolutely great and far exceeded our expectations. I would recommend anyone to book this space - you won't be disappointed!
Holly was AMAZING. She was 1000x more helpful than I could have asked and she is the sweetest person and was very accommodating. The space is larger than it looks in photos and Holly helped me create my vision. All of my guests loved the space and wanted to use it for their own events. I definitely recommend this venue and Holly to anyone interested!
Perfect. If you are looking to organize an event for 20-40 people close to the Convention Center. This is your place. Holly was really helpful, the catering recommendation that she gave us what delicious. All the attendees to the event loved the place they even took pictures to share with their friends. Strongly recommend it. You won't regret it. Quim
Holly was SO accommodating and SO helpful on the day of our shoot. She made sure we had all the equipment we needed, helped us load and unload and was so gracious the entire time. Plus, the space was gorgeous and worked perfectly for our shoot. Thanks so much Holly, I can't wait to come back!
