We used this space for our wedding reception and I have to say it was a phenomenal experience. Iso and Matthew were very helpful with the space, helped us bring in vendors, and met with us several times so we could take looks at the space. The Kitchen was a fantastic place to serve food for our guests, and the lot was large enough for a big dance floor and plenty of room. Also, the lights and surroundings required no decoration on our part. I could definitely see doing another event here.
