Madeline was super helpful throughout the experience, and always responsive. However, the space itself didn't work for our needs. It is long and narrow which doesn't allow for people to mingle or network, especially if there are 60 or so people. Our host on the evening was rude, unavailable and unhelpful. I also didn't expect to have to take our own trash with us especially for the price per hour we were being charged.
I'd been wanting to host an event here for a while — and having now done so, I can say that it didn't disappoint! The space is open and versatile and easily worked well for our talk with a big audience and for socialization afterwards. Madeline was a total professional and made planning effortless and happily coordinated with caterers and production. The event went without a single hitch, and I would never hesitate to host another event here soon!
Madeleine was a great host and massively knowledgeable. The event went extremely well thanks to her. I would highly recommend this space to any inquisitive and creative groups of people.
This was our second time booking with Madeleine and yet again, it was a huge success! Thanks again to Madeleine and her team for their support during the entire process. We look forward to returning in 2019!
We've booked space here twice and both times it's been a very enjoyable and easy process. Madeleine is very helpful and accommodating and very hands on. The space is clean and bright and I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking to be close to the Moscone and Whole Foods for catering purposes.
Not only was the space beautiful, clean, and accommodating, the history of the presses set a great backdrop for a conversation about art and the use of emerging technologies as new ways to communicate. Our event was ticketed, but welcomed walk-ins, and the location on Folsom invited a few passerby's to join us that evening. Madeline was prompt with responses, professional, attentive, and very easy to work with. We'd love to host an event here again in the future.
