Natalie C. booked an anniversary party for 50 people
This space was great! Olena and the rest of the University Heights staff were a breeze to work with - they allowed me a lot of time in the space before the event to take measurements and were very accommodating about decoration ideas. PA/sound maxed out before we would've liked for our dance floor, but we didn't want to blow any speakers. Overall, great space with ample parking just outside the door - everyone had a blast.
Darwin D. booked a music concert for 50 people
It was a great deal with the space. Olena was a pleasure to coordinate with. The setting up wasn’t quite complete and the sound system needs to be tested for some noise and sudden cutting out issues. Would have been helped by sound person being there throughout. But overall, great experience and would definitely do it again!
