Actual performance venue bookings

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.

headshot mini-session

I'm a local photographer, and I'm interested in checking out your space if possible. I'm planning a headshot mini-session that I'm considering expanding to a community event with some acoustic performances and a few small vendors. The date will either be the 25th, in the afternoon, or on the 27th, beginning at 5:30 PM. It will last between two and three hours. I think your space might work for me, but I’d love to come check it out in person, to look at things like location of outlets, general lighting, etc. I'll be in your area on Saturday late afternoon/early evening. Would it be possible to come take a look sometime between 4 PM and 7 PM? Thanks so much!

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.

video production of a show

Thanks for having this spot available for film. I'm producing a video for my company. We will be filming a host introducing a show and 4 guests, and each guests performs a verse shortly after. The crew and set up is small, we just wanted a space that looked industrial and spacious.
