Antonio was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. He did a good job accommodating my party which I appreciate so much. The staff was very friendly. I would go back again in the future. Definitely recommend!

Antonio was super helpful from the beginning, answering all my questions as it was my first time using thisopenspace.com. The space was great, and we were able to host our party at the main floor (which is much bigger) since it wasn't being used. The party was amazing and I'd definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a private space to have a danfe party. Thanks Antonio!!

I used this space for a costume dance party this past Saturday and I love it. Our bartender was so nice and all the staff made sure everything my DJ needed was out and ready for when we got there. I definitely will be renting this venue again in the near future. My friends said they had a lot of fun. Hopefully next time we can use the upstairs to have a bigger party! Thanks again Antonio!

Antonio was such a pleasure to work with! Very helpful and accommodating, we can’t wait to work with him again in the future. He handled our party very well and kept the venue well staffed for our sold out event. We heard. I thing but positive reviews from our attendees as well. Thank you for everything Antonio!

A+ Rented this space to a host a birthday party. I was allowed to put up decorations and use their projector and speakers. Antonio was super communicative during the whole experience beforehand and during. Let me know what equipment they had for my DJ's and gave me the measurements I needed for decorations. The upstairs event was cancelled for the evening and I was given the option to move my party upstairs, to the larger space. I liked the vibe of downstairs so I stayed put but it was a thoughtful gesture on Antonio's behalf. Would 100% recommend

Antonio's event space was the perfect spot for mine and my friends birthday party. The space was perfect and the staff was really great during the night. Antonio was very accommodating for all me and my friend's needs, he is a fast responder, and made everything just go as smooth and perfect as we wanted to have the best birthday ever.

Antonio was so accommodating and helpful! Did a last minute booking because my original host cancelled on me due to an eviction. Antonio saved the day!! His space was so clean and amazing!

Trippy

August 2019 | Private Stage And Bar

l hosted an event here and between the venue being absolutely filthy upon my arrival time the staff on shift was horrible. There was used napkins and cups all over the floor. There was empty water bottles everywhere. It was gross. I barely got greeted by the male worker who was very unprofessional and extremely rude. passive aggressive for no reason. He had rules of his own that weren’t listed on the page. anything I asked for it was a problem. They interrupted my event and starting throwing people out. Slammed the door in my mothers face. I didn’t get his name but he was an absolute ***hole as was his side kick. I would never ever in my life tell someone to go there and even get a drink of water. I couldn’t believe the quality of the service. I could honestly go on for pages. All in all, save yourselves the trouble.

Hosted a 20th birthday here and had an absolute amazing time! I had to change dates and Ilya was really understanding. The staff was incredible, I was upgraded to the main floor for FREE, honestly I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It's a great venue close to the 506 Streetcar which made it super easy to get there/back home for everyone.

This place was booked for a private dinner / birthday party last minute. I had booked another space but they cancelled on me last minute. Anyways, Ilaya communicated with me clearly and called to reschedule plans. I appreciated the open communication. First, this space is usually not used for a dinner type event but that was the kind of party I had. However, the hosts I met on site were very helpful from beginning to end, they helped me gather tables I needed to set up for my party and they were there to help me set up sound for playing music. They were really kind from start to finish. I had a blast with my frds of about 30 pple, we ate, mingled and danced in this private space and there were no strict rules on how I could decorate so that was a BIG PLUS for me. Thank you so much for adding to the cheer for my party!

ATTEMPTED to shoot a video. I Booked and paid 4 weeks in advance. Communicated throughout the 4 weeks giving updates and constant confirmations that I was going to use the space. The day of the booking I got completely GHOSTED. Ilya Didn't open door, didn't answer phone. I rented equipment got a videographer director extras etc. Just to sit outside for 4 hours waiting and calling. I tried contacting thisopenspace and they were no help. Told me I'd get a call back. Of course I didn't. I am currently awaiting compensation

I had a get together for my birthday at this venue and it was exactly as seen on the pictures. Ilya showed me the place after I booked it and communication with her was good overall. The day of, the staff were very helpful and accommodating in helping us get set up. Morgan, who was at the bar, was great! All in all, it was a good time!

If you have the chance to get a space from Ilya, do it. She was extremely accommodating. I requested late on the Sunday and she found someone to come in for the Monday. Thank you, Ilya.

Thank you for the space! Staff was helpful and kind. Had what we needed. The only downside is that the only washroom was downstairs but the upstairs patrons were respectful and didn't cause any trouble.

Shane

The space had be repainted and the pictures did not accurately depict the location. For some groups this might not be much of an issue. But, for our filmed interview, our director was disappointed we did not have the mural as a backdrop option.

The photos don't do this place justice. It's a perfect gem - it was exactly what I was looking for to host a birthday party at. Also, their staff are rockstars! My friends had a blast. Will be back. Thanks!

Ilya was great and prompt in helping me secure a spot for my daughter's surprise birthday party. Especially because on short notice and my life would have been in peril if I'd come up short in arranging her surprise! The host Cheyenne(spelling?) was awesome in helping to make sure things ran smoothly once we got there. And she did double duty as the bartender as well! Way to go! Everybody loved her and she was so friendly to boot! Everyone loved the space! Great ambience and we sang and danced the night away till 2am! Would book the space again! Thanks! Vin
