Melissa K. booked an event for 40 people
Our guests had a wonderful time in this unique and elegant space. The indoor/ outdoor environment was just perfect for our farewell reception. Our host, Kelvin, could not have been more accommodating. He allowed us to drop off wine/ alcohol before the event so it could be chilled and ready when our guests arrived. He even advised us on a vendor who turned out to be great. This is a gem of a place and a gem of a host. Could not recommend highly enough.
