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!

cocktail style baby shower

We are looking at this space as a potential venue to host a baby shower. This would be a cocktail style affair with 30-40 people. There will be simple decorations (we will make sure there's no glitter or confetti) and some tables set up with food and drinks (we will make sure we don't have any glass). Can we see the space before booking the venue? If so, can you send me some available times for the evenings this week to come see it?
