We will never rent from here again. They will nickel and dime you death its not worth the price. To many layers to jump through in order to resolve issues. They will give the appearance that you can do whatever you please however that's NOT the case. I was not satisfied with the aftermath of the booking and do not recommend to others. Furthermore street parking is non-existing spots are always and not available. ZERO STARS.....
A great location and space for a party or gathering. Caroline was incredibly helpful in advance with planning aspects, and her team was fantastic on the night of the event. A+, 10/10 experience, would recommend to a friend!
We held an engagement party for myself and my fiance in this venue. It was an excellent time in an excellent space. Caroline was very easy to work with and prepared the space for our needs. I would recommend.
