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.
This place is a hidden gem. We received a ton of positive feedback from our attendees about the venue, plus Madeleine was awesome to work with! Would absolutely recommend!
I can't begin to say how pleased I was to have had our event at Madeleine's space. The day before the event, she sent me a detailed run-of-show to make sure all the details (layout/setup, trash, AV, etc) were confirmed. When I arrived the venue to begin my own setup, she had already done most of the work so I pretty much just had to plug in my laptop for the presentation, test the mic, and arrange the decor I brought with me. On top of everything, her venue itself is truly unique space and a conversation starter with the perfect floor-plan for presentations, networking events, receptions, panel sessions, etc. I couldn't have had a successful event without Madeleine and would love to book her space again!
Amazing space, friendly + helpful team on-site, and all the equipment (chairs, projector+screen, extra tables, etc.) we needed for our 45-person offsite. Will absolutely book again when we need somwhere in SOMA for our group to meet and present.
