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.

birthday gathering with coworkers

Wondering if your space would be available, Saturday evening for a birthday gathering? If so, is it possible that I come take a look? I've had this indoor/outdoor rooftop vision in mind. I have a list of 40-50 professional coworkers, few close friends and close family members. Please let me know.

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.
