This space and working with Sean was such a seamless experience. Sean was so quick in getting back to me on questions I had and was so accommodating with letting me come view the space as many times as needed before the event. Great space, great experience.
We rented the space for my mums 60th birthday party. Our group of about 50 guest fit easily with lots of room to spare. Sean was super easy to communicate with. He emailed back right away & was very helpful day or and prior to the event when I had questions. We brought in our own food & booze but were able to make use of the fridge and coffee maker. Having 2 bathrooms was very handy. The only thing I could recommend is that they post some photos of the even space in the evening when the lights are dimmed. I worried from the online photos it may feel a bit clinical or like we were in an office space but it wasn’t at all! It really has great ambiance. With just the string lights and some candles I brought it looked great that night. I wouldn’t hesitate to book the venue again.
This space was absolutely gorgeous and all of our guests loved the venue! Most importantly, our host Sean went above and beyond to make sure everything went well for our event. Great organization and communication. He was very warm, helpful, attentive, and always gave his best suggestions and opinions to help us out. We are very pleased and grateful with our entire experience with Sean and thisopenspace!
Sean was absolutely fabulous to deal with and went above and beyond in his support of our event! Our customers were super impressed with the space and our experience using it was fantastic!
Fantastic host. Very responsive and proactive. The space was everything as described.
We had an excellent experience hosting our fundraising event here. Sean and Lisa were very responsive to questions, and made everything from site visit to booking the space, to using the space, very seamless and straightforward. The space itself is well-kept, very flexible for different types of events, and in a very central location. Thanks again!
Sean was an amazing host who went above and beyond what was asked to ensure we were happy with the venue. Not only did he help provide suggestions to best utilize the space, he also pitched in to help us organize at the beginning. We will definitely be reaching back out to Sean for our next event!
Quick communication and organization. Very easy working experience with both Sean and his colleague Lisa. Will definitely go to them and this space for future events.
