"...used this space for four weeks straight and never once had a bad experience. It was perfect for exactly what we needed and the performers had a wonderful time getting to practice there. We won't have another show for awhile, but will definitely come back to use this space..."

"...BLNKeast was a perfect space for my Sound Bath performance. The small gallery will easily fit 12 yoga mats comfortably. I ended up having more that 12 attendees and Eva quickly helped me move over to the larger showroom space to accommodate my needs in exchange for a tad bit..."

promo video shoot with a performer

We're shooting a couple of scenes for a promo. Planning to use a fire performer so my main question is- are you ok with that? It will be a quick and safe shot, flames around 8-10 inches. Please let me know and if it's ok I'll book your space ASAP. I love your rooftop so ideally I would like to use it too.

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.

acoustic performance music video

I'm an aspiring filmmaker working on a music video project in need of a venue to work in. It's a simple acoustic performance with a guitarist and vocalist that will have other film material overlaid. Both the film material and musical performance will be filmed in the space, as it coincides with some of the different themes we hope to achieve. The director and musician would like to rent the space for a couple of hours for initial scouting. We would like to take measurements, explore the space, and work on visualizing our project with your venue, so we can eventually rent it in the near future for the actual filming. It should just be the three of us (a possible fourth, the guitarist, might join us for a quick rehearsal).
