"...to work with, extremely responsive, and I would definitely recommend this space for any event you might be looking to host - a dinner, fundraiser, cocktail event, photo shoot. A nice change from the predictable lounge and restaurant venues..."

baby shower with food and cocktails

My husband and I are expecting a baby and were hoping to have our shower here. Likely 20-30 people, serving a champagne cocktail and beer and platters of sandwiches and salads (or something similar). Would your space be available? THANK YOU!!!

cocktails and live webcast

birthday cocktail party

I was wondering if your space would be available to use for a 30th birthday party on the 27th from 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm. I am not anticipating having more than 30 people in attendance for appetizers, cocktails, and dessert. I would be interested in finding out what is available in the space or what we would need to bring (tables to lay out food/drinks, seating capacity, speakers to play background music). Also, is there anyway to see the space i person? I live in the city so if there is an opportunity to view before the day of the event, that would be really helpful.

engagement cocktail party

My fiance and I love your space and think it would be perfect to host our engagement cocktail party. We're very excited to celebrate our recent engagement with all our our friends and love the versatility of the space, as well as the art. We're looking forward to hearing from you! Please let me know if I can answer any questions about our event.
