We rented out Lucas's space for 3 hrs for a birthday party, with 50+ attendees. Lucas was incredibly helpful and understanding and assisted with anything asked for. The space was even better than the pictures made it seem and the atmosphere in the building was great, very fun and inviting. The availability of a sound system was super convenient. Would 100% rent again! Thanks, Lucas.
