Looking through all of our reviews shows this is truly an exceptional space for event bookings as well over the years with many seminars, large group meetings, private celebratory events such as weddings, showers, proposals, birthdays, popular for product launch, release party, there's nothing we haven't hosted at this point...

The space was better than expected! Host was great at responding to messages and also helped clean up at the end of the night. Great experience!
Host was super helpful! Helped set up/decorate and clean up after. Super easy to communicate with and quick with responding! Would definitely recommend this space. Everything was available upon requests and host was very kind/open to suggestions or concerns.
My friends and I did a gathering for Halloween where we carved pumpkins and watched horror movies and this space was the perfect spot for our event. Not only was the location amazing but the host was very prompt or responses and easy to talk too. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Great place with lots of character! Dylan goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need.
The studio was such a great place to host my birthday party and Dylan made it very easy, he was extremely accommodating. I will definitely book again for another event in the future!
Dylan, you were incredibly hospitable and always there to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. This is our second time attending a private function at this location and I 100% recommend it! The layout and decor was on point and the lighting was great if you are looking to take amazing photos :) Thanks again Dylan, can’t wait to host another event!
The space was absolutely beautiful! Exactly what it looked like in the photos. Dylan was very helpful and attentive to all needs for my event! He was very involved on the day and offered many suggestions. I hope to book with Dylan again for my next event!
The venue is one of my favourites in the city. The venue was needed for a last-minute booking, and Dylan + his team were incredibly accommodating. In addition to being spacious, I appreciated that lighting + other tech was available; For this shoot, I had opted to use the in-studio lighting and backdrop seamless, and I do not regret it. I appreciate that the venue has multiple 'set' locations within the area to accommodate different photo vibes. In terms of COVID-19 protocol and safety, I appreciated the emphasis on safety and both the talent and I felt incredibly comfortable and safe during our time working in the venue. I will definitely be booking again.
The space was great and had everything we were looking for to host a gathering. Dylan was great to communicate with. He was always available to answer any questions and even provided us with some decor items that we could use for the event. Would recommend this place to others :)
The space is beautiful, even better in person. Lots of natural light and a variety of locations to shoot. Dylan was very helpful and accommodating for my shoot.
