One word..AWESOME! Not only was this venue amazing, Christian is a great guy to work with. He's very flexible and is always willing to lend a hand whenever necessary. This space is very ideal to host parties and the rootop terrace view is nothing short of spectacular. Would definitely book again!
My husband and I chose to have our wedding here. We were very pleased with the experience overall. Christian was attentive, responsive, and accommodating. The venue worked perfectly for our event. Our favorite thing about the venue (aside from working with Christian) was the flexibility that it allowed us in terms of vendors for the event. The one drawback for us was that there is limited space to get ready or freshen up in the venue space if you need to, which means that you need to go to a lower floor to do these things if you need more space. The lower floors are workspaces, and there were people working during our event. We were trying to be relatively quiet and considerate while we were in these spaces, but one of the employees was pretty rude and abrupt with us. It was off-putting, and we didn't feel completely comfortable in the space on our big day. Other than that one incident, it was a great experience.
Brian and I don't really know how to put into words how special this venue came to be to our wedding. From the moment we walked in on our first tour, we were blown away and knew it was it. Any two architects or design professionals getting married would agree. Christian was nothing short of AWESOME helping us coordinate everything for the day to run smoothly. He was so responsive and always available to open the venue up to us, answer any questions and be as flexible as possible to meet all of our needs. We will never forget that day, and this rooftop was such an integral part of that. Kelli and Brian
Gorgeous meeting space with incredible team - Christian and the Studio Gang team made everything flow smoothly and professionally. We will be looking at this for all future meetings!
Wonderful host, wonderful space, wonderful experience! We held a wedding for ~60 people (both ceremony and reception) and couldn't be happier. Christian was helpful and flexible throughout the booking process, preparations, during the event, and afterwards for breakdown and equipment pickup. We had originally planned minimal decorations and setup, and Christian was extremely flexible in giving us the time that we needed the day before to get everything setup (fortunately, there was no Friday night event planned). He was also prompt and responsive to our questions throughout the planning process. Putting on events (especially weddings) is supposed to be stressful, but working with Christian and putting on the event in this space made it about as easy as it can be. The space itself is gorgeous and easily accommodated seating for all the guests during the ceremony (arranged in a few concentric semicircles on the prairie side of the room), and then more than sufficient space for a dance floor and seating to eat inside and out. We got lots of compliments from our guests on the venue and experience.
This was an AWESOME venue for my 30th birthday party. Access to both the indoor and outdoor space was perfect. Christian was an incredible help and made the whole process simple and easy!! I would definitely recommend and use it again!
