The space is beautiful, and very useable for a variety of events. Lauren was wonderful to work with, easy to communicate with, professional, reliable, and kind. Would love to use this space again.
Lauren is great! Look forward to working with another project with her again!
The space is absolutely beautiful. On a sunny day (which we had) the skylights and windows create an incredible light show that makes for really amazing photos or video. Lauren was very fast to communicate, and helpful in letting us see the space a few days before our booking. Can't recommend this place enough!
Lauren was very easy to communicate and 397 Alexander was the perfect space for our event. Thanks for having us!
