Orlando F. booked a party for 175 people
I had an amazing experience with this space. Emma was extremely nice and helpful and she ensured that the event went swimmingly. I would 100% recommend any person to rent out this space if they want to host a 100+ person event
Gozde I. booked a birthday party for 50 people
This is a beautiful waterfront location and a very interesting space at a very affordable price. The venue is very clean and tidy and the staff are extremely helpful and flexible with their hosting. Great for a kids birthday party, the ECC has extra events that are super fun and educational for kids. I would definitely book this space again.
Dominic A. booked a homecoming party for 200 people
Very nice venue for many different types of events. Would definitely book again for the future. Only difficulties were - another booking overlapped, which caused our event to start late - the space hadn't been cleaned upstairs for our event.
