Richard is the absolute best. I cannot gush enough about how helpful, thoughtful and amazing he is/was. The space was beautiful and perfect for my birthday event, and Richard helped with every piece. He was accommodating with changes I requested, and ALWAYS had a cheerful disposition. My friends and family were obsessed with the space, and definitely want to come back to look at his fabulous finds :)

Ash C. booked an event for 10 people
We cannot recommend Richard and this venue enough! We did a micro-wedding (10 people) and gave Richard free control over the space. He decked it out with a beautiful color pattern, amazing dishware/china, gorgeous flower accents- and provided everything we needed to make our day special. He is a fantastic communicator and stayed in touch when the weather wasn’t looking good. He was an amazing host. Wish we lived closer and could use the space again! Get the add-on package! The value far exceeds the price tag! We will never forget this beautiful special day and this space and host were a big part of that.
Ausrine R. booked a wedding party for 15 people
Richard has been an absolutely amazing host - we booked his space for our intimate wedding that we managed to put together in 2 weeks. Richard went above and beyond and truly made this day super special. He was superbly detail-oriented, very helpful and responsive, and so caring for our experience! The add-on package is fantastic and the space is so fabulous during the day and especially when it gets darker! Guests arriving through the shop - Richard's Fabulous Finds - is such a unique experience and added so much to the evening! Richard, thank you so much!!
Sean S. booked an event for 25 people
Richard's patio was all that we could have asked for and more. It's a very nice space for about 20 people and the "extra" package that he provides takes the trouble out of party planning. Not only was the venue wonderful, Richard was very responsive and made our experience great. I highly recommend Richard and his patio!
Molly W. booked an event for 11 people
I can't say enough positive things about Richard or his beautiful space. He truly listened to and helped create our vision for our little elopement/reception. He was extremely communicative, helpful, and available while never intruding, both leading up to and during the event. We feel so grateful to have found him and this space and to have been able to host our tiny wedding here!
Alyssa G. booked a surprise birthday party for 25 people
Richard was amazing to work with, just as everyone has previously said. His rates are affordable and his space is beautiful. It blew all the guests away. His "add-on" package is totally worth it as he has everything you could possibly think of to make the space perfect. I trusted him fully when it came to setting up the patio as I've never thrown a party before. He keeps communication very open and calmed any fears I had. Would definitely book again and my guests were all asking for details so they could book it one day too!
Venus W. booked an event for 20 people
Richard is awesome! I selected the add-on package with my rental for an outdoor brunch and he went above and beyond what I expected. The space was decorated so nicely that I didn’t need to add much else when I arrived. He was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the event. I would definitely rent this space again.
Thank you, we're on it!
