"...Great space! We used it for an eight week workshop that culminated in a performance. Max and Marina were fantastic hosts. Very attentive, responsive and willing to help out wherever they could. Thanks guys! We'll be back..."

"...We used Eristavi Winery for our chamber ensemble's season opener. As it stands, this was the first time a live concert has been performed in the space and it worked out well acoustically and socially. It was a little tight, as we surpassed what we expected our audience size..."

Actual performance space bookings

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 shoot

I perform as an artist. We're shooting a scene for a music video and we intend to use the space as a utopian lounge where I can perform. The reason for the short notice is that my friend wants to make a cameo in the video, and is only available on Saturday before I go on tour on the 27th.

release party and art exhibition

I'm a singer-songwriter coming out with my 2nd EP this winter and looking for an art gallery / performance space for the release party. My hopes are to have my visual artist friends exhibit their pieces as well as my musical artist friends perform as opening acts. Your space looks perfect for both occasions with your adjacent empty exhibit room!
