Build coffee was amazing. Today, I hosted a equity forum & vision board social surrounding women’s health. Hannah was very kind and supportive the entire event. This space was very cozy and welcoming. I truly enjoyed this space and my guests did as well.

The host was very responsive. She responded in a day (max). The space looked exactly as advertised. The pictures were very helpful in seeing the layout options. I also visited the space in person. I used this venue for my Husband's PhD graduation party. It was PERFECT for friends and family to gather. I chose it because it was cozy and personal and the books on the shelf made it look like an intellectual hangout. I also loved the brick wall. The service is the best part of this venue. Hannah helped with anything we needed. She genuinely wanted us to have a good time and to leave any facility issues to her. She was clear on instructions for how to use the projector (and helped). She also gave a tour of other things that we could use. I asked her for a mop and she mopped up the water herself! She was just the right mix of being hands off and letting us have our space but also being available to service our needs. I really can't say enough about her. Parking was good too. Since the venue is rented after hours, there isn't much traffic in the area and guests will find close spots. Although, the venue itself is hard to find via GPS. I suggest the host message directions. I also loved that there was a music system available. The projector was a big plus. There were cozy couches but also enough eating tables. There was bar area for our desserts. Being able to put our supplies in the kitchen was a big plus (to get that stuff out of the way of our guests). AWESOME spot!

Very easy check-in/out process. One staff was on site and able to assist with anything that I needed. Beautiful space!!! Had my birthday party there and my guests really loved the place!
