The space was as beautiful as described and was the perfect location to film our dance video. The main foyer, bathroom, and change room were well lit and very clean. Boyd was understanding and easy to communicate with. We would definitely consider booking the space again in the future to film another video.
Sincere thanks to Boyd for opening his lovely space to us when our picnic-style baby shower got rained out. He is a gracious host and was very understanding of all the tiny people running around (even when one knocked a clothing hook off the wall - sorry about that, Boyd!). The space itself is bright, clean, and airy. It is attached to a yoga studio and, in future, I would aim to book outside of the class schedule to ensure that customers weren't disturbed by noise from our event. The only hitch was parking as Chinatown can get busy, particularly on weekend afternoons (many of our guests were driving, and a few have accessibility needs). Thank you for being so kind and accommodating, Boyd. We'd highly recommend this space to others!
This was the perfect location to host my sister's baby shower! We had great privacy, a sound system to hook up some light music, beautiful lighting to take pictures, tables and chairs to accommodate all the guests and food, and AMAZING help from Emmanuelle (one of the owners). She really saved the day when I forgot to bring a few items with me! We had a little mix-up when I first tried getting a hold of Boyd, but we eventually figured things out and I was really impressed with how much he and Emmanuelle worked to accommodate my booking into their schedule. I was so lucky to have their help with setting up my event!
We had an excellent event in the space, everything we needed was on site. Thanks to our hosts who provided great support throughout the evening, our launch party went off without a hitch. We highly recommend using this space for your event!
Great rental. Boyd was easy to reach & open to making our event work within the space. The washroom is a "no shoe" zone - understandably because of the yoga space - but was a little inconvenient for our guests... Other than that - the space is fantastic & the staff made it a breeze to access.
Boyd's space is great! The staff there are super friendly. It was easy to communicate with Boyd. They had tables and chairs to use at our disposal. Since it's attached to a yoga studio, it also smells great!
Boyd is a wonderful host! He was so accommodating and helpful, and made everything super easy. Thank you :)
This was such a great space to use. Everyone was so helpful and kind when we were setting up and during the event. Everyone who came loved the space as well and our event was a success because of it.
Boyd was quick to respond to messages on thisopenspace, as well as by phone. They were flexible with our reservation timing, and the space worked great. There's no elevator, and limited parking may be an issue, but the space was clean and open and perfect for a variety of events!
Boyd was an amazing host! His communication over email and phone was great and he made sure that I had everything that I needed in order for my workshop to be a success. His studio space is so beautiful. Beautiful layout and energy. I would definitely recommend anyone to launch a workshop/event at Stretch :)
