Tracy R. booked a birthday party for 45 people
Space was just right for our birthday party. Good options for moving the furniture to allow a dance floor and simple dj setup. The kitchen is very well supplied. Lanie and the employees of Marion built were super welcoming and helpful. Flexibility on delivering supplies early is a big asset and stress reducer. One surprise at our site visit was that there is no elevator, but luckily wasn't needed by our guests. Loved the atmosphere and many people remarked on how nice the loft. Great memories!
Danley S. booked a focus group for 17 people
Lanie was so easy to work with! She made sure to schedule a virtual walk-through with us (as we were booking from CA) so we could see it and everything was exactly as we expected. Having the active workshop underneath was a cool feature that our attendees were checking out (it can get a little loud during the afternoon so be aware of that, evening was always quiet!). There was always plenty of parking available too! We partnered with Gourmondo's, as recommended by Lanie, and because they are already familiar with the space, they were a breeze to work with. Beautiful space and tons of room!
Jael B. booked an event for 45 people
We celebrated my husband's milestone birthday at Marian Built Loft, and it was the perfect venue for us in every way--size, location, amenities, etc. The booking process was straightforward and Lanie was very responsive to any and all questions I had prior to the event. I recommend scheduling a walk through before your event to get a better feel for the space especially if you're planning on putting some "minimal" decorations. The place is perfect; so you don't really need that much decorations added! This place is an absolute gem! Looking forward to hosting future events in this space!
