Beautifully appointed with modern wood furniture, the space features adjustable lights (side-sconces, overhead), a pull-down screen, surround-sound and a small stage for presentations.

Good Day, My daughters baby shower at the Common Cafe was perfect! Unfortunately we didn’t get a full picture of the layout but it was lovely. People had a wonderful time and it turned out to be just what my daughter and her fiancé wanted. I highly recommend this space especially if your having 70 people attendance. Thank you, Chinita and Danielle
Darren T. booked an off-site for 75 people
Wonderful location, useful for many types of events. The staff: perfect! He was so accomodating with decor, lighting, audio. If also using for food, plan early and allow yourself & host the additional time. The host generally responds quickly. I would love to rent again.
