Carlos went above and beyond to help organize my show last night. When the DJ's had questions, he was quickly available and gave advice. He is the best manager I have worked with and I am very grateful for his expertise and kindness.
Caroline and her team were incredible. I was a little nervous booking a venue without checking it out in person first- but this place was even better than the pictures! Would highly recommend if you need space for a work presentation :) Thank you, Caroline!
Carlos was a great host for our training event. We have some last min changes in the floor plan layout and he was able to pull it all together for us. He shared the history of the building which I really enjoyed. Bathrooms and area are really clean.
This place is amazing. The venue is gorgeous and in incredible location. The staff is friendly and super responsive. The venue has everything you could think of, we didn't have to bring anything of our own, it was all there! I highly highly recommend this spot for your next event.
This was a great space for my event, in a historic location and landmark for tenant rights and the Asian American community. The day's site host was extremely personable and generous, and gave a brief overview of the space's history before my event. This was much appreciated. He also helped set up the chairs, tables and AV tech. Wonderful experience.
