Matt K. booked a party for 35 people
Jordan and staff are incredible hosts. Jordan was accommodating from the beginning and even offered incremental options to enhance the experience. The space is immaculate with great attention to detail. Jordan’s passion for events/hospitality was felt by ~35 guests, who had a blast! 11/10 would book again.
Shannon F. booked a happy hour for 60 people
I hosted a happy hour event here for about 60 people the day before my wedding and it was perfect. The venue space is beautiful and the staff were really responsive and helpful (both in planning the event and day of). We added the additional programming room and it was a perfect size for the number of guests we had. They also let us bring our own snacks to offer our guests and we were able to play our own Spotify playlist over the sound system. It was a great value for the price and I’d highly recommend the space for anyone planning an event.
Laura W. booked an event for 60 people

This space was perfect for our office holiday party! The venue itself is really cool and versatile. The in house food & beverage selection was delicious and the event staff was spot on. I worked with Jordan to coordinate this event and they made it an absolute breeze. I will certainly book this venue again in the future!!
