Our team absolutely loved the space! Warren was so kind, friendly, easy going, and super helpful. This was my first time running a team offsite, and it was a total hit! I would highly recommend Warren's space. People on my team are still saying noting but great things about the space:) TY Warren!!! Sarah
Patricia S. booked a 40th birthday party for 100 people
This rental place is great in regards to the large space it provides for guest to enjoy, and the industrial look it has are what make it great for entertaining. It has a large kitchen for setting up food for large parties, and an area that can be easily converted to a bar with attached dancing floor, which is how we used the rental space. The host is super flexible in providing set up time with no additional cost; he allows you to drop off party items and set up before your event a day before if nothing else is scheduled. That was a huge plus for me. My guest highly enjoyed the rental space, there were lots of compliments, especially the balcony and the room with the tv which were used by my family members who brought their kids. The one thing that was somewhat difficult with this rental space was having the host present during my event. I was told that we as the renter had a choice for the host to be there or not the day of the event. When I inquired about him not being there the day of the event, he said he needed to be there to help manage the elevator since he was the only one who could work it, but that he would hide-out in a room the entire time. On the day of the event, he kept coming out of his room and wandering off, and scolding me the birthday girl, my husband and my guest about various things. The music being too loud (I agree), not changing a diaper on a sofa (person had a changing pad), scolding my husband and I that we needed to pick up before our time was up, and how well things were cleaned up and so forth. The presence of the host throughout my event made me and my guest super uncomfortable. I believe that if you are renting a space, you should have some autonomy with what you do on the day of the event, but mindful of respecting the place always. We felt that at times, we were being watched through cameras without our consent. I loved the location, his flexibility with the location, but the wandering around and scolding us during the event was really inappropriate and unprofessional. We are a group of professionals, doctors, nurses, engineers, we are very responsible and respectful people. We were having clean fun, and if things got too messy, dirty etc, loud, we would have taken full responsibility of cleaning up or paying extra for going over our time. I spoke to the host in person about how he made us feel the day of the event for transparency and for his future rentals. This place is great, the only recommendation would be to really discuss your contract well with the host about them being present or not at your event.
Brian B. booked an event for 100 people
Warren's space had everything we needed and more. For our event which had mostly Deaf attendees, the main room with the kitchen and the stage was perfect as it allowed for clear line of sight for ease of communication. The space made it fun for us to light up with our own equipment. The smaller rooms have their own charms, and there were plenty of bathrooms to accommodate the guests. We highly recommend Warren and his penthouse loft.
Michele N. booked an event for 70 people
Fabulous! Everyone LOVED the space. We had a company cocktail party there. It was intimate yet fun with all the different rooms. The art around the loft was great. Warren was delightful and very attentive and Nick was wonderful too! I can't wait to have another reason to rent this loft!!!
