Kelley is wonderful and this space was an a absolute hit for my friends 30th bday I hosted. Everyone was blown away at the venue and Kelley was a fantastic partner. If you want to throw an event that will leave people talking — this is it.
This was an incredible and unique event space— perfect for our group! We used the back room for a presentation on the projector and had a little pizza and wine party :) It was fun to poke around the store, too! The hosts were lovely— super helpful and very kind. Communication through the booking process and leading up to the event was seamless. Everything was great and I would definitely recommend this space!
What a great experience!! First of all Kelley really did a stellar job pre, during and post event by setting expectations, answering question and just generally being helpful. The venue itself is totally charming, all the guests loved the space and all the furniture, decorations and art! I highly recommend throwing an event at this space!
We had a FABULOUS time here. Office christmas party consisting of a twenties themed murder mystery with bar and food. There were about 50 of us. Kelley was wonderful and really helpful throughout. Great communication. We were able to arrange for the store to close an hour early and also hire a bartender through Kelley. My staff loved the venue - at least one bought something while there! All the little areas for sitting and chatting were a big success. It might seem an odd idea to have a party in a store but it really worked.
