"...Good experience! we held a dance performance, and everything went smoothly..."

"...Host was very responsive. Great space. We were shooting video interviews and unfortunately a music performance started to play in the area which spoiled our audio quality. I emailed the space owner and was immediately reconciled with clear communication. I hope to book again..."

Actual performance venue bookings

proposal with a private performance

I am planning the ultimate proposal for my lady and this venue fits right into my vision. I am very open for dates. I would need the space for a couple of hours for a private performance, from one of our favorite local bands. I am fine with doing it during the week, because I know it'll only take a few hours and of course, I would love to keep the cost down.

summer barbecue

We're a liberal art school that focuses in performance, visual, media and business for the arts. We're looking to host a "Senior Send-Off" summer barbecue socializing type of event for all the high school seniors (our new freshman). We thought it would be a great way for the students to get to know some friendly faces before they start this big adventure. It's my first time using peerspace and this space looks great! Especially with the indoor/outdoor rooftop aspect. Were probably looking at the 60-70 person range. The event time would be from 2-4 but we'd probably need an hour of set up time that I can definitely include for booking. Questions I have: Do you allow for a caterer? If so, do you have a private list, or is it open? Also, do you have speakers to play music from? Nothing crazy, just background. Do you need additional info from my end? There will be no alcohol as most of our guests will be under 21 attending with parents.

music video scene on a rooftop

I have a music video. It is Saturday the 7th and we would like to have one scene on this rooftop. I saw you have a two hour minimum, is there anyway we can do one hour? This is a run n gun visual meaning we will have no lighting setups and no other equipment is being used beside my stabilizer and camera. So we should be fairly quick. I plan on having him perform a few times with the city in the back round. My camera crew contains three people and he will be with his friends. 15 total at the max.
