A great space and our event was a success. Jesse the manager was so sweet. He was quick to answer any question or concerns that we had in a timely matter. The only disappointment I had was that they space said that they have a kitchen. This venue did not have a kitchen but a room where a fridge and stove were plugged in. There was no counter space and the fridge was already full with items from their cafe upstairs. When using this venue you would have to put a lot of thought into catering in order to ensure safe handling of food. Nonetheless our guest loved the space. Almost forgot... One thing that I didn't appreciate was a random couple viewing the venue during our event. I read in a review for this listing that this too happen to them. I think that was very disrespectful. The staff member that brought them down to view the venue didn't even mention to me that they were allowing someone access to roam around. I just happened to walk into complete strangers and they were the ones that made me aware (was not impressed to say the least)
Our event was a great success, Matt provided the bar and bar staff and they were wonderful. Matt was really easy to communicate with, and always responded promptly. The event before us broke the coat rack, which was a bit of an issue for my event, but we were able to solve it.
The art space has a layout that allows people to spread out nicely without feeling sparse and Matt's team was extremely helpful with setting up chairs, tables, and glassware for us.
Booked the space for a closed video shoot. Great space, easy to deal with and very nice people. However, we had an issue with being partially double booked for the time we paid for, and as such lost the ability to use our first several hours as we had planned to use it: for lighting tests and set-up. We were not informed that the gallery had an agreement with an artist (whose work was on display at the gallery for a period of time) that it would remain open to the public with the house lights on until 6pm (we paid to start our booking at 3pm). As such our set-up, and subsequently our entire video shoot, were rushed. No partial reimbursement or discount was given.
The gallery was a great a venue for my pre-launch. The staff were accommodating and the venue was clean, light and airy. I would rent this space again because it has lots of space but is still intimate. It would be great for a reunion-type event or a birthday.
This space was very beautiful, staff were very nice. I would definitely use it again for future events, my guest also loved the space. I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a gathering.
Great venue, great staff. Hosted a birthday party with 90 people and Matt and his business partners were amazing with accommodating my budget and making the event run smoothly. Highly recommend this place for events .
This venue was perfect for my party! Matt was very easy to communicate with and was able to help with anything we needed! I would definitely book here again!!
