Really great space to work in! The pictures on the site give a wonderful representation of the venue. The staff on site when we first arrived were friendly and accommodating and the coordinator we booked through was easy to contact when we had a question later in the night. We did have a man walk into the café looking to use the bathroom who sort of berated the group of us when we told him the establishment was closed and we were renting the space. He was very confused why the door didn't have a closed sign and how he could just walk right in. This was during the time the barista was still doing cleanup duties, but he just so happened to step out of the café to empty some garbage, it seemed, when this man waltzed in. The man seemed a bit threatening, and we didn't know the best way to handle him. After about 5 minutes we convinced him to leave and we locked the door until the barista came back. Luckily this didn't set us back and wouldn't deter us from using the space again!
Renting this space was pain-free, and the host was terrific, in every way. A film shoot always means some unusual requests ("Can we find a way to unplug that noisy freezer?" "Can we move that furniture, if we promise to move it back?" "We need to shut down that blower, is that okay?" I would recommend this venue anytime -- Thanks for accomodating our needs! Thanks!
Eugene was an awesome host! He made our shoot day there incredibly easy. While he was accessible if we needed him, he left us to do our thing. Whether shooting video or still photography, the cafe really is ideal for any sort of "Anytown America" setting. It could easily serve as a cafe, coffee shop, restaurant, etc.
Eugene was a great host! He let my friends and I stay an hour later than our scheduled time because there was an initial mix up with the starting time. Everything ended up working out perfectly for the surprise party we were throwing and everyone said the venue was exactly what we needed :) The staff behind the counter until closing time even gave us some birthday candles when we realized we had forgotten ours! Overall, this was a fantastic experience.
My team and I had an absolutely fabulous experience at Gallery Cafe. The crew was helpful, the space was fun and interesting, and to top it all-the music was marvelous. Good vibes all around. The owner, Eugene, was there to help for anything along the way. Wonderful experience and would be most definitely recommend. Thank you, Gallery Cafe crew and Peerspace!
