You may bring in any food and drinks you like and you may bring your own catering service as well, however, all vendors must be insured and provide proof of insurance before the event. You are responsible for removing all items you bring into the space, including garbage and recycling as we maintain and operate within a "leave no trace" policy. We will take care of a full cleaning after the event, but ask that you remove anything you've brought in. You will be responsible for any significant damage done to the facilities or products in the space. Normal wear and tear, however, is not a problem and we can arrange a walkthrough beforehand.
Perfect - everything was perfect! Rachelle was great to work with, she is patient and actually cared about my event. The space was awesome, it was clean and ready on time, the price was right and the location was spot on for all of our guests.
OMG.. Rachelle is the best.. i totally loved the place.. everything planned out lovely, and Rachelle is more than superb.. she helped me unload, gave me tacks/tape, etc. she even assisted with cleaning at the end.. i would definitely rent the event space again,, like without a doubt..
I booked this space for my husband’s 40th birthday, we did a “roast”. The Maker’s Loft was absolutely perfect for this occasion. Intimate yet spacious enough for approximately 25 people (we could’ve had more). Rachelle was such a gracious and responsive host! I booked a week before the event and she accommodated everything I needed to make this a memorable event. Projector, seating, tables, great lighting, everything was made available to make this come together. All of our guests kept asking about the space- it was most definitely a hit! Will book again for future events. Thanks so much Rachelle!!!
Makers loft was the perfect space for my wife's 30th Birthday party. We had a little over 50 people and it was enough room for everyone to move around. Rachelle was super helpful and accommodating. She was very prompt with her responses to all of my questions and requests. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a space to host a party or event.
Rachelle was amazing. She was flexible with all of our needs and made sure we had every single thing we needed. The space was just as versatile as her. With her help, we were able to bring our vision to life.
