Geno E. booked a company holiday party for 80 people
This space is awesome. Feels like you are having a party at someone's amazing home. The staff was helpful and efficient. We had 65 people, and the space was great for that size but could have also been a party for 125 and still fit nicely. I will keep this on my list of must book places for company events.
Shinae L. booked an office holiday party for 80 people
The Academy was the perfect venue for our company holiday party of 50! The decor and service was amazing. We were completely taken care of with a full staff! I was skeptical at first because the price came to much higher than the Peerspace quote, but it was way worth it to spend more and have everything taken care of by their lovely staff. :) Everyone had a great time and loved the venue!
Jake E. booked an event for 120 people
I’m reluctant to leave a review because I don’t want the secret to get out about this place... I threw a NYE party here and the venue was perfect for me and 100 guests. The space required practically no decoration and had nearly everything we needed! Nate and his team were wonderful, attentive, responsive and communicative throughout the booking and event. The only downside I can think of is that there are only two restrooms so there might be a little wait at times. The speakeasy is awesome and definitely an exciting element for guests, the card table was a great activity and the outside area was spacious and warm for nearly all our guests. We’ll be back!
Jeanne H. booked an office holiday party for 80 people
WOW! I knew that night with Nate and his team would be amazing but my team and I were blown away! The space is beautiful and was decorate with such class for the Holiday season. The team was friendly, professional, fun and supportive. I booked the space for my team's Holiday party and I have only had positive feedback from my team members who want to use the space on their own or for us to go again! If you want to impress your team then book this hidden gem in the Castro!
Lauren M. booked a photoshoot for 2 people
A great space with a lot of interesting things to see! I rented out the space for a photoshoot and there were a lot of really good locations. Nate and his business partner were both very accomodating and kind enough to provide additional props for the shoot. Thank you very much for allowing us to use the space+
Kimeya D. booked an event for 55 people
Nate and his team were AWESOME! This place is truly a gem - i had several different vendors and they helped them with their location setup / assisting with anything before i had got to the site. I wanted a fun twist on a great bartender that could make some really great mocktails so we weren’t leaving out non alcoholics out by only serving juice or soda and boy did Mate deliver - Joel was amazing my team could not stop raving about the incredible cocktails/mocktails. Would definitely recommend if you want to run a seamless event
Kristin R. booked an event for 80 people
The space was amazing and the entire process from seeing the venue to booking to event day was a breeze. Nate was very accommodating and even allowed us to pay for an extra half hour on the fly as we wanted to give our guest more time to enjoy themselves. The guest raved about the space after, and we couldn't be happier with the place!
