Reviews for Waseem


October 2019 | Historic Gallery Loft Event Space

The space itself is nice but communicating with Waseem was not an easy task as at one point, it took 11 days to get a response from him. Also, the day of our wedding, the space was still a mess from a previous Halloween party which was held there. Half eaten cookies on the floor, candies in the plants & spooky writing on the bathrooms mirrors.

Waseem was an amazing host! He gave us the option to view the venue prior to booking, which was kind of him to do. On the day of the event, anytime he needed to be reached he was a phone call or text away. We had issues with our Client's event and he has nice enough to accommodate our needs. We would highly recommend this space and hope to utilize it for future clients.

Waseem was super east to communicate with. He gave us a walk through of the space so we knew where everything was prior to coming in for the production. The space itself is very production friendly.

Waseem is incredible to work with. He met us on a Sunday to see the space, responded immediately whenever we had any questions and even helped us clean up after the event! The space was extremely clean, organized and went above and beyond our expectations. We will definitely be using this space for every event we have!

This was a great space for our event! Waseem was very flexible to work with and was able to accommodate what we needed. The night of our event, he was completely available to us and gave us a lot of time to set up and take down. This was very helpful!

I met Waseem in January 2017 to book the venue for my wedding. Instantly after meeting him I knew that he would take care of my needs. He was super friendly, very professional and gave me all kinds of details regarding the space capacity, Liquor licence and all the extra stuff that I can rent. He was very easy to talk to and was keen to make my experience positive and as easy and smooth as possible. I dealt with him over the span of seven months - whenever I had questions regarding furniture rentals, catering options and how he could accommodate catering without having a kitchen. I felt that I was dealing with a friend or a family member through that seven month time. He always answered his phone, he always had solutions and suggestions. I was worried about receiving the rented furniture, setting up the place and whether we would have time to do that before the reception. Waseem generously allowed me access to the venue the day before my booking. In addition to this, he handed me the key a week before because he wasn't in town during the weekend of the wedding. Waseem introduced me to his business partner Mikey. Waseem assured me that Mikey would take care of anything left to do and that he would make himself available on the day in case any surprises came up. I met Mikey at the venue on Friday when he came to set up the in-house sound system that I rented. Mikey was as friendly and professional as Waseem. He set everything up and connected with the DJ to make sure that his equipment was compatible with the system. The Inner City Record Shop is accessed through the venue. Some might have doubts about the venue because of that. In my experience, Waseem, Mikey and everyone that has access to the space have created a small community that cares for each other and each other's business as it's own. They are amazing. Gary from the record shop is a great guy who was always checking in while we were setting things up for the wedding. He even asked if we needed any help. On the wedding morning, a friend got locked out of the venue and my car keys were locked inside the hall. I called Mikey. Mikey wasn't close by and wouldn't be back in time. Mikey called Gary. Gary came right away to venue and opened it for us. All in all, my experience was wonderful and I made new friends. I've recommended this location to numerous people who are celebrating milestones and new engagements. I would rent from them for my next event in a heartbeat.

We looked at quite a few places and then found Waseem's venue which instantly won us over. Tall ceilings, white walls that gave us the creative freedom for lighting and decor, a coat-check area, large washrooms, and beautiful hardwood floors. On top of that, Waseem was responsive, helped us out where ever we needed, was super nice to work with and supported us throughout the process. We're already thinking of our next event at this spot! And during the day, there is ample natural light coming through the windows, so it works for both day and evening events.
