Excellent! Yashar's space was perfect for our show. He was great to work with and easily accessible. We'll be back again, I'm sure.

Elaine was very helpful and corrected a miscommunication very quickly and satisfactorily. The neighbourhood felt slightly unsafe once it got dark, but was comfortable during the daylight hours The space is great as a bare bones environment that we were able to transform into our needs.

Elaine is great to work with and very understanding of situations and is pleasure to work with.


May 2016 | The Playground

Great space, easy to decorate and make look like whatever you want it to be. Would be good to have a locked up place to store personal belongings while there but otherwise it was lovely! Appreciated all the social media interaction and shares by our host and this open space!


November 2016 | The Playground

This space felt larger to me than it looks in the photos. There is a parkade close by so that was a big help for our event guests. We really appreciated being able to use the sound system and overall the venue was perfect for our event. We hosted an art show/fundraiser with 10 artists and had about 100 guests throughout the course of the evening. I recommend this space. Elaine was a pleasure to deal with and all of our needs were met.

Space was perfect and using it went without a hiccup. Highly recommended.

The Playground turned out to be a great space for our art show. Elaine was also very easy to communicate with and responded to every question I had, usually within the hour. The space itself is perfect for a small art show or pop-up and the simple layout makes things easy to set up. Would definitely rent the Playground again.

The communication was great and everyone was as expected. I recommend to anyone looking for a pop-up space.


December 2016 | The Playground

Elaine was quick to respond to all of my (many) questions, and provided everything I needed both in terms of information and set up. I had a great show and a great night. I will certainly rent this space again.


December 2016 | The Playground

It was a pleasure talking to Elaine. The space was everything we expected. It was very easy to access and we had everything to leave the place as it was. I would recommend it to anyone doing a pop up store or more!

Great space!


December 2016 | The Playground

Great space in a good location - a little bit off the beaten track for walk-in traffic but close enough to any transit lines and gastown for anyone to access it easily. I held a small craft pop-up shop and it was perfect. Has a great big street front window with a large ledge for any displays. Space comes with multiple tables and chairs to display items on, as well as a taller "check-out" desk. I was in contact with Elaine and she was great at responding to my messages. Access to the space is very simple and easy. The space is usually booked so you'll have to stop by during another pop-up to get a look at the space but the photos are accurate.
