Such a lovely venue! Even more spacious than we expected. Marcus was great to deal with, very seamless experience.
This space was better than the photos displayed! Phenomenal experience! Marcus was very flexible for his time schedule and Cynthia* was super friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. We had a great time at the space and our guests kept on asking how we found this spot. Thank you Cynthia and Marcus, thisopenspace.
This beautiful space was exactly what we were looking for. Marcus was also super communicative and helpful throughout the process. Highly recommend.
This is a nice place for shooting. The decor is pretty and chic, they also provided a big table for our crews, which allows us to use it as a craft table to put all the foods. In addition, we appreciate the host show up on Sunday morning to open the door for us, very punctual and attentive.
The space itself doesn't come with the chandelier and you aren't able to find that out until you attempt to book the space. It's also a shared space which is not specified. I was shooting a music video and needed my personal space as not to feel judged by people who work there and have nothing to do with the shoot. It was clean and the people who were there were very nice and willing to get out of the way. It's a great space... if you know those things in advance.
good place for shooting.
nice place, good service.
