Anish P. booked an engagement party for 47 people
This was a beautiful space and can be used in many ways. The outdoor patio was beautiful. Robin is accomodating and a pleasure to work with. She provided some critical information in regards to bartending licensing requirements which helped me plan a fun enagagement party. I would book again!
Roger R. booked an event for 30 people
Our wedding at the Roof Crop was beautiful. The space was everything that I thought it would be. All of our friends and families loved it and we have some beautiful pictures from the location. We were able to set up and do everything the way that we wanted in the end. We had some ongoing difficulties communicating with Robin throughout the whole process. We often had to go back and forth to clarify communication and ideas multiple times. She was quick and responsive initially, however the communication difficulties increased as we came closer to the event. She did suggest some beautiful spots in the neighborhood to take pictures that were extremely helpful. Also the day of the event, we had a mishap and needed to get to a store quickly and Eleanor was extremely helpful locating local retailers! We had two visits to the Roof Crop before our event. We had difficulties both times finding mutual times to visit. When I asked for open hours and options to visit for the space the answer was not clear, and we were only told that their hours were “variable.” On our first visit, the person was 5 minutes late. The second visit, Robin told the person the wrong time, and she was 30 minutes late. We did receive an offer to reschedule and a rental discount; however, we were too close to the event to reschedule our visit. We booked the venue over a year in advance and there were changes to the venue in that time that we were unaware of and we feel we should have been notified. Their “skyline” view is now mostly blocked by a new high-rise under construction which is NOT reflected in the picture on the website. There was also a beautiful ivy wall in the lobby that would have been perfect for a photograph backdrop which is no longer there. We were also told that there were plenty of options for rentals through Peer Space and time to reserve the rentals. In addition, we were told that they would need only a week or two to reserve them for us. Initially, when I asked for a list I was told that I could have it closer to the event, as they are constantly adding more inventory. We later found that they have very limited rentals available. We were a small party so they only just met our needs, but had I been aware sooner, I might have looked at other options. I do not regret booking this space; however, I feel like it took an emotional toll to use this space due to the communication difficulties. We also partly chose this space because Robin seems competent and available to support us as needed. As the event came closer, we began to doubt that and worry about how the venue would work out, which caused a lot of stress. I do feel like others need to be aware of the limitations of this venue before booking.
Mark E. booked a 40th birthday party for 60 people

Tricia H. booked a birthday dinner for 60 people
This is a great space-great size, great vibe, great location! My guests were comfortable and happy. Just wish ‘full use of kitchen’ meant we could use everything in it without be charged extra. Robyn was helpful and attending to all my questions. Would definitely book again!
Kevin H. booked an event for 80 people
What a spectacular space -- perfectly suited for a large group wine tasting we hosted. Modern, Accessible, and most importantly Robin was wonderful to work with -- before, during, and after the event. Highly recommended.
Lissa D. booked a party for 70 people
Great venue with accommodating staff. I would recommend the space (especially the patio) for any party in the spring/summertime.
