Great venue and great hosts. They gave a detailed walk through of the venue. Had great people helping with the elevator and the overall facilities if we needed anything. It made the proposal perfect! I would definitely recommend.

Center was big and nice but it’s also things that they don’t tell you for the amount of money your spending there is a guy that stays in your event the whole entire time the refrigerator was not clean an full with food already one of the host us very rude rushing to clean up I honestly would not book with them again due to the things I’ve stated.
Precious A. booked a birthday party for 40 people
The space was perfect for my event. Warren made it such an easy process to book. In his absence (on the day of my event) he provided an amazing support staff to assist !
Rachel R. booked a birthday party for 60 people
The venue is very large . The venue Was not cleaned. The bartender at the event could not even store beverages in the refrigerator due it not being clean and sanitize . The host gave me a tour prior to event and showed me several rooms for my guest , it’s was awkward that the day of the party the host was occupying one of the rooms at the party . The kids who attended the event were very uncomfortable by a stranger no one seemed to know I had to ask him to leave the room and he did. I wouldn’t use this space again. For the amount of money you pay for the space it should be cleaned before hosting an event .
Kayla B. booked an event for 110 people
Warden isn’t a very good host I booked this event for my dad memorial and he harassed some of my family just there staring and watching us closing the windows and it was no air circulation whatsoever. He even told me “get these people out of here” when I booked until 9 he tried to make us leave a hour early. I loved the place but the host was just a bit to pushy our first time meeting was a week prior to the event and he spoke to me and my mom like we where just some random people, no type of professionalism!!! I WILL NEBER RENT HERE AND RECOMMEND YOU GUYS FIND ELSE WHERE
