Mike was a great host! Very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. The space was perfect for our event of ~30 people. Really cool space and received many compliments and questions about how we found it! Looked even better and bigger than the pictures! Would definitely host another event there in the future.

Tori B. booked an event for 50 people
I would definitely rent this space again. It is a gem. It is in a great location near downtown, the Blue L line and highway exits. The space is large with a great layout and beautifully decorated, which allows for a great flow throughout the event. Many of my guests were impressed and inquired about renting it themselves. The price is right! Mike was very nice and chill; it was a very relaxed and comfortable vibe. As an event planner, I can assure you that isn't always the case. He was very communicative and answered all my questions leading up to the event. The day of, he showed me around the space, answering any last minute questions and making sure my music worked. I would definitely rent from Mike again.
Keona R. booked a brunch for 25 people
The place overall is beautiful and welcoming, the host not so much. We couldn’t have the swing down during the event because alcohol was being served even though we were required to insure the event. We weren’t able to use our own music and the built in system didn’t work most of the night. The host required additional fees for things like ping pong table and darts, when we declined the services we were told they’d be removed from the place and that didn’t happen. Overall, I’d pass on the place in the future to avoid working with the host. They were a tad nit-picky, I almost felt like why rent it out. Maybe for something like a short photo shoot, but definitely nothing beyond that.
