Holly is the best! 🙂My daughter sweet sixteen party experience held at the stunning South Loop Loft was amazing. I will definitely recommend this space to everyone I know. Terrific space to host an event for sure.
What an amazing space! I enjoyed working with Holly from start to end. My guest were in love with the venue and are still talking about it today. Holly and her space made my Love to Cook Valentine's event absolutely Exquisite!. I look forward to booking with her again.
We used the space for a leadership workshop, and it was the perfect ambience for a unique, inspiring workshop. Everyone who walked into the room immediately reacted very positively to the set-up! Holly was also an absolute joy to work with and you can tell she was dedicated to the success of our program. We used her recommended caterer who is two doors down and provided a really great menu that wow'ed the group. She was attentive to our needs and really made putting together the workshop very easy on us. :)
Holly, hands down, knows the true meaning of customer service! From my first visit prior to booking the space until the event date she was an exceptional host. She is such a gracious, pleasant person to work with and was so accommodating to the needs of our event and guests. The space is beautiful and guests loved it. Holly makes you feel like she's your partner vs. Just your host as she was invested in the positive outcome of the event experience. I felt like I had known her for years and she goes above and beyond to make your event extra special. I will definitely use this space again and suggest it to anyone looking to create an event to remember!
Terrific! The host, Holly is very welcoming and a great host. She made sure that our group was set up properly and rolled out the red carpet for us. The space was beautiful and spacious. But mot of all, the host was gracious, helpful and friendly. Thank you Holly!
Great space with great natural light. Holly was awesome, available and quick to respond to my questions. Studio has a lot of charm and great choice of angles for our video shoot. There was occasioanal street noise, but it was minimal. Everything went great.
We loved using Holly's space as our production office for our shoot. She was very accommodating and a pleasure to be around. The space was large and beautiful. It looks very much like the photos and is in a great location just south of downtown. I will certainly use the space again in the future.
