Actual gathering venue bookings

party to celebrate a wedding

I'm a vegan cycling instructor and wellness blogger/speaker that lives . Every few weeks or so, I speak about a wide array of health and wellness practices at workshops I'm asked to and/or put on myself, all around the city. Next on my list is a vision board workshop! (Final date is still tbd.) The workshop will include a small matcha latte “how-to,” launch, an open discussion about wellness, and then, time to craft the vision board. This space looks like a perfect fit for an event like this.

proposal with a small family gathering

I'm helping my brother plan a marriage proposal. We're looking for a private space to host a small family gathering. Is your space available on this date? We would be interested in a combination of both studio A and B, as he will propose on the rooftop and we'll celebrate inside. Any information you can provide would be helpful.
