LaVosha P. booked a birthday party for 30 people
The space was great for my 50th birthday party! Everyone had space to be socially distant and still have fun. We made sure everything was put back in its original place and garbage removed. Thank you Shima!

Mariah D. booked a baby shower for 35 people
This space is absolutely incredible! We hosted a baby shower for 30 guests and it was the perfect space that allowed all attendees to feel comfortable, safe, and socially distanced while engaged with the event festivities. Shima was very helpful throughout the entire process; allowing us to view the space twice, answering all questions, and being onsite the day of the event to assist us with any issues. The bar and kitchen area are really the cherry on top and the perfect setup for external catering. A few suggestions going forward would be to provide extra trash bags before the event and provide any wifi, Sonos, and check-in information either the day before or early the morning of just for ease. Though the space was pretty clean we did feel that the upstairs floors could've been mopped as there was a bit of dust on the floors. Aside from that, the space was perfect! The multi-level floorplan was very welcoming and functional, the plants really add a lot of life to the space, and the overall decor and vibe are beautifully curated and perfect for artists and creatives alike. We recommend and will be booking the space again for future events.
Emerlyn D. booked a launch event for 50 people
My guest thoroughly enjoyed the space. The aesthetic and ambiance added to the experience I created for my guest. Though there were renovations made after my initial walk through everything was still perfect. The only thing is I paid for cleaning however we were required to put the trash in the dumpster behind the building including the ones in the restrooms; we technically cleaned up before we left. LOL. I also paid for security however there was no security guard. I'm assuming it went to the young lady they have managing the building. She was very sweet. Overall I wouldn't mind using the space again.

Shima + Khalid are awesome partners who helped us every step of the way in the planning process. Their beautiful studio brought a perfect combination of history, culture and design to our signature closing ceremony.
