The wall space good and the lighting is adjustable. Melinda was very responsive to multiple emails. Most of the furniture can be rearrange to your liking, but nothing can be removed- the piano has to stay against the wall. The bathroom wasn't stocked with toilet paper. There's no manager on site during the actual event. Overall Melinda is a easy host to work with. This event is best for invite only projects.
Positive experience with Melinda, good, fast communication. We were there for a sit-down interview shoot - the wall beams and couch on house right made for good color in addition to the art and greenery we brought. SUCH easy access for a film crew from the street, and it was so easy to get coffee RIGHT outside - and it's so lovely right on the water. It's definitely as advertised in the lead photo minus the yellow wall hanging. Note for producers, you can move furniture around but you cannot move the piano, which was no problem for our purposes, but it's a good thing to keep in mind if you're doing anything other than playing piano in that spot.
Overall outstanding venue and experience. It was exactly what I wanted plus more! The host was very pleasant and easy to work with. I had a genuine fantastic experience.
The host was responsive. There seems to be a slight mix up with a table but hopefully we can work it out. The space appeared exactly as advertised.I hosted a showcase
