We had a great time in the space! It was perfect for a birthday party, and the venue had all the music equipment that my DJ needed. They were really easy to communicate with, kind and professional. They set the space up beautifully so that I needed to just arrive on the day of my party and have fun! It was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Great value!! All of that being said, the venue owner accused my party of making a mess in the bathroom at the venue following the party. However, the bathroom was not private and was patronized by everyone in the bar, and the venue owner had no direct proof tying someone in my party to the mess. She speculated that since I was having a dance party, someone in my party must have been the one to make the mess, which seems unfair. The party was attended by about twenty of my closest friends, all of whom are in their 30s and are responsible and respectful adults. The venue owner also told me that a similar mess had occurred at the venue at least twice in the past, so it seems that there is not a real reason to think that someone in my party was the culprit. I did not appreciate being accused of this without evidence, and having it written in my review that someone in my party made a mess at the venue. It may prevent me from recommending the space to others in the future, despite the fact that I really had a great time and loved the venue.
Faye and her partner have an incredible space for small intimate events. From the moment that I first created the booking right to the very end, Faye was friendly, inviting, accommodating and went above and beyond of what was expected of her. She even personally served us our food and drinks! If we had the space longer I'm sure we would asked her to perform a number with us. When you see the space for yourself, you'll be trying to think of an event to use it for. I know I am. Thanks Faye and all the staff for making our event so memorable.
