It is also said our space has worked well for photo shoots and filming for documentaries, music videos, as well as other video production. Depending on your style of event, there are some things we can supply (table, chairs, etc). We prefer to work one-on-one with you to do what it takes to make everything happen.

This is a private loft space, overlooking Melrose Market. No one else will be entering into the space during your booking, unless you request otherwise.

This place is amazing for photoshoots! Beautiful soft window light during the day!! Not to mention all the decor, books, leather chairs, wooden floor, etc.. Jen rolls out the red carpet and is the best host I've ever had!! I cannot recommend this place enough!! Book now!!!
Jen was such a generous host; she really helped us make our company photoshoot a success by enabling us customize the set up of the space, and being on site to show folks around the building and it’s amenities as they arrived.
Excellent space. Has a surprise bday party here and it was a total success! Told the bday girl dinner was at Sitka and Spruce and surprised her when she walked through the doors. Jen was an excellent host to work with.
Jen was terrifically responsive and accommodating. The space itself oozed with charm and sophistication. I reserved this space for a few friends for my partner's birthday. While the space overlooks the market, it still felt very secluded for our event. There were many hidden nooks so that I could create a scavenger hunt that led to a final birthday gift. It was a perfect fit for my partners aesthetic and guests were very complimentary!
Jen's loft space was the perfect place for our party! It was intimate and cozy, and everyone felt very comfortable there. Jen set up a great DIY cocktail bar and a wonderful spread of meat, cheese, and snacks for everyone to enjoy. The birthday girl was very happy, and very surprised! Plus, this loft is in a prime location in the middle of the Seattle nightlife scene. If you've got a small group and need a casual place for a get together, this is it!
Jen's loft is really unique and such a cool spot to host your event. She is very friendly and accomodating. The location in the market is worth checking out. There are many awesome businesses sharing the space below. Would 100% recommend
