backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.

dinner club with outdoor seating

What a beautiful space you have! It almost looks like some place outside of the city. :) My team and I host private supper clubs, and are looking for a space with both indoor and outdoor seating options.

private outdoor wedding ceremony

My partner and I are eloping in a ceremony for just the two of us (plus an officiant and photographer) on the 18. We plan on having a short ceremony in the late afternoon/early evening followed by some photographs. We will be having a larger event for friends and family down the line, but want a private ceremony for just the two of us to begin with. We are looking for a quiet space with an outdoor area for the ceremony. We were wondering if your space might be available that day. We would ideally like to rent it for 2-3 hours.

corporate event with a band

I attended a Sofar event in your space and loved it, and would like to plan an upcoming corporate event for my company. We plan to have a live musician/band, bring in our own food/alcohol/bartenders, and enjoy both the indoor and outdoor space. Please let me know which of the two dates I mentioned are available, and if so, if you have any thoughts/concerns on the event. If we do the earlier date, it's a bit more of a logistical push so we just want to get a move on with our planning.
