The venue was perfect for our workshop event. Takashi was a helpful and friendly host, and helped us pull of a successful event! Everyone left satisfied. The space itself was charming and full of the ambiance we were looking for. I will say that if you want to do a presentation, class, or workshop that requires tables, that 30–35 people is the maximum that will be able to fit comfortably around tables with a view to the screen. Takashi's rates for catering are quite reasonable, and the assortment of food and drinks was nice and well-received by our guests. Overall I would absolutely book again.
Takashi's venue was a great prep-space and resting spot for our photo shoot this past Saturday. It is very spacious and has a certain rustic character to it. Takashi was on site to make sure everything ran smoothly. We had to extend our time by half an hour and Takashi was able to accomodate it. It was a pleasant experience overall!
Absolutely LOVE this space!!!! It was perfect for my Networking Party Event! My 50 guests did not want to leave. Takashi is the best host ever!!! He was kind and helpful from beginning to end! Definitely intend on coming back!!!
