The loft/studio was the perfect place for my college pals and I to celebrate our 10-year reunion dinner. It was comfortably intimate and spacious for our group to reminisce and catch up with one another. Mick was a very accommodating and attentive host from the get-go. He generously answered all of our questions and catered to our needs for the event. He helped to ensure that we had everything set up to have a fun evening. Mick also worked with our chef so that she can successfully prepare a feast. The full, on-site kitchen, along with all the essential equipments and tools, were heaven-sent. Thank you for being a part of creating new, special memories for our class!
We rented this space for a videoshoot for our dance team, and the space was gorgeous with a nice wood floor perfect for dancing. The space also has WiFi, which is nice. Mick was a great host and guided us on how to use the space and was very helpful.
Mick was a great and very responsible host. The space is beautifully lit and perfect for formal and informal gatherings of any kind! Could comfortably fit around 30-50 people.
The space exceeded all of my dreams. The natural light is amazing, the brick walls the perfect backdrop, and the studio is kept in perfect condition. Clean and spacious, and decked out with anything I could ever imagine needing for a photo- or video shoot, or a meeting or workshop. I would always be proud to bring clients and business associates here no matter the occasion. Mick as a host is as amazing as they come. He was accomodating and kind, responsive and helpful, and just an awesome person to meet and talk to.
We loved this space, and look forward to renting it again many more times. It was perfect for our 4-day workshop, 20 people. Thank you Mick, the space is beautiful, and you are gracious and kind.
