Alex C. booked a holiday party for 45 people
Di and Aleksey were wonderful hosts. Their courtesy and willingness to help made the evening a success. And, the space! Amazing. Our guests were thrilled to be there. Thank you, Di and Aleksey!
Krystal B. booked a performance for 75 people
The space was beautiful and a great fit for our event, however, we found out the week of our event that the space wasn't going to look the way we first came to see it because the theater is running their own production. When we came in for tech rehearsal, Di made us feel bad if we asked her to re-arrange something to accommodate us after all the changes she made and didn't inform us about. We were very displeased with Alexi - he was very rude and his communication was very unprofessional. Di, did try to accommodate us by offering more hours of tech and some lighting cues, however, she could have been more accommodating with helping us arrange the space the way it would best work for us. We will not use this space again.

Maurice S. booked an event for 75 people
Very great venue and staff! For our particular event, the sound system wasn’t specifically what we needed dealing with R&B, Hip Hop and Gospel musical presentation. But other than that, everything was the highest quallity and exceeded our expectations coming from out of state. Great night and great booking! Thanks to Di and Alexi.
Viccoria N. booked an event for 50 people
Nice space. Just wish I would have known a few things before I booked! Like it is a walk up with no elevator access so if you have a lot of equipment, that something to be concerned about also the bathroom is on a different level and it needs to be a little cooler during the summer time. Other than thatn, an awesome great host!
Katie M. booked an event for 40 people
Great space! We used this for our daughters 5th birthday party. Walls were painted green with designs which worked great for our theme. Some tables for food and drinks (but not for adult seating which was fine for us). Plenty of chairs. Di was great and let us see the space a few weeks ahead of time for planning purposes. Only issue was that it was a very hot June day and got a little warm (but such are old building in NYC). Great value in a great part of town and very unique. Would definitely rent again.
