Actual event venue bookings

alumni networking reception

We will be traveling with a group of 35 MBAs for a week. While we are there, we will be meeting for a networking reception with the alumni and your space looks like a perfect fit for our event. Before booking the space, may I ask if you'd be able to accommodate to our preferred set-up of 6-8 tables with chairs around? Also, would you be able to share some information on canapé options and maybe pizzas? Do you have any contact for bartending services? Looking forward to hearing from you.

photographer networking shoot

I am a photographer with background in travel, nature and wildlife. Over the last couple years, I have moved into portraits. I now work with aspiring models to help them build out portfolio shots (and mine). I am looking to do a couple photographer/model networking shoot with 5 photographers and 5 models. This is all for personal use only, not commercial. I came across your space on Peerspace and wanted to reach out. As background, I am trying to create an event where there can be multiple locations so we can have 5 shots at same time. These would be with minimal or no props. Basically carving up space so keep out of each other’s line of sight. It looks like you have a huge raw area which would be great for this.

outdoor bday lunch / dinner party

I love your space! I wanted to host my bday lunch/dinner party in the space. We are using this event to raise money for a community garden. We plan on cooking onsite and using the kitchen space would be great. Not sure if you have an outdoor space (parking lot or something). We would also bring a grill to use outside if that is permitted.
