Communicating with Olga was a breeze. The space was exactly how it appeared on the photos. We celebrated our daughter’s 1st bday there and every detail of the place from the piano to the books to the saint paintings, added a very unique touch to the overall ambiance. Thank you, Olga!
Olga is always a generous and accommodating host. The space is excellent for intimate gatherings. Such a charming venue that I will book again for future events in the city.
Olga and James were great and accommodating hosts! We used their space to film two interviews for a documentary. The space was quiet and Olga and James were available to answer any questions we had.
