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!
