Actual event venue bookings

book reading and discussion

I am a queer, trans poet. For the proposed event at your space, we are looking for ~2 hours, during which time will be spent discussing the work, reading from the book, and questions/dialogue from the audience. Following, there would be time to meet and greet, sign/sell copies of the work, and aid in cleaning up. If we have the possibility to fit that many people in the patio area with a microphone, I would absolutely love that!

private listening session

I've been looking at your space for a few months now. I'm going to be hosting a private listening session for a project I’m releasing. Your space is one of threw that I really like. The crowd that I attract and will be inviting out is a mature crowd. Wanted to know if this type of event is something your venue supports.

three-hour baby shower

Myself and my friend are planning a baby shower for our friend. We are planning to have about 50 people for a three hour event with an hour set up and an hour cleanup. We'll have platters of food but no cooking. Alcohol is actually a maybe but I marked yes- OK if it's not allowed.

photographer meetup

We've are looking to host more events in other locations to allow for diversity! We have a photo meetup set up - so we allow no more than 20 people to come into the space for two hours (models and photographers) to shoot around and collaborate, then at the two hour mark they all leave and a different group of 20 come in for the last two hours. No more than 25 people at a time and it's incredibly smooth and quick transition!
