gathering a small team for an offsite

I am running a software and creative services company and we are gathering our small but friendly team for an offsite. We will do a few presentations, a lot of conversations and will use white board heavily to brainstorm. Our Creative Director (who is also a professional photographer and videographer would love the space and I am hoping to surprise him with it). We are also planning to have light breakfast and lunch in the space, but if that is undesirable, that's fine, we can skip that part.

proposal with a small family gathering

I'm helping my brother plan a marriage proposal. We're looking for a private space to host a small family gathering. Is your space available on this date? We would be interested in a combination of both studio A and B, as he will propose on the rooftop and we'll celebrate inside. Any information you can provide would be helpful.

party to celebrate a wedding

I'm a vegan cycling instructor and wellness blogger/speaker that lives . Every few weeks or so, I speak about a wide array of health and wellness practices at workshops I'm asked to and/or put on myself, all around the city. Next on my list is a vision board workshop! (Final date is still tbd.) The workshop will include a small matcha latte “how-to,” launch, an open discussion about wellness, and then, time to craft the vision board. This space looks like a perfect fit for an event like this.
