Reviews for Julia


August 2018 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

I had a small party in this gallery. Great space, very accommodating and helpful. My guests enjoyed the space as well :)


March 2018 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

Audie and Julia were quick to respond to all my inquiries and very helpful.

Friendly and a great team of people to communicate with. Flexible use of space and they also offered fridge space for our event! It's also really kind of them to lend their speakers even though one of them is not working. Regardless, I've seen lots of improvement since the first time we've used this space and it's becoming more cozy!

Booked the gallery to celebrate my 30th birthday - and it was a dream ! Perfect space to host 40-50 of my closest friends and family. Lovely to have the open white space in the front and bar in the back. Julia was easy to communicate with, and connected with us in advance to provide a tour of the space and all it has to offer. Had several guests comment on the space and how perfect it was for the party. Would definitely book again !

Everyone we worked with and met at the gallery was great. We would rent this venue again!

I had my 30th birthday at the Gam Gallery. The team was great and very accommodating. They walked me through the space and showed me where I could find anything I could possibly need. They have pretty much whatever you need to host a successful event. The space is as described and pictured.

Extremely great experience renting from Julia the rest of the team. They are super friendly and run everything very smoothly, all things were a breeze! Would love to host there again, and highly recommend!


September 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

We rented this space for our zine launch and it was the perfect atmosphere. The space is really clean, and was the perfect size for our first event. The hosts were really accommodating and made it super easy for us to set-up and tear down. Would definitely rent through them again. :)


June 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

This was a great space to hold an art fundraiser. There was tons of room and it was nice to have a fridge in the back to store extra food and drinks. There was also a sound system but the speakers are a bit big for the area so we just used a smaller boom box and it worked perfectly. Yes the area is not the best but we had no problems with people. One thing to note is that the bathroom area is not the cleanest but it is also not directly in the studio, you need to walk out the back door to get to it, but other then that the area was clean and ready to go. There are tons of tables, chairs, stands, etc which gives you lots of options for how you want to set up the space. Will definitely be renting again for future art events, birthdays, etc :)


April 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

The venue was cute and just the right size for our event. Communication was a little iffy when trying to make initial contact but eventually we were directed to get in touch with the gallery assistant who was very helpful with the key exchange. There were speakers, mini fridges and tables for our use at the venue. The bathroom is accessible but it is not modern or updated. Also, the garbage bins could not be found in the back alley. The location in East Hastings was a little sketch but we kept the front door locked and stayed in groups at the end of the night while waiting for cabs. As a result, we didn't run into any trouble. Overall, an amazing backdrop for our end of the year celebration (UBC Players Club).


March 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

Great experience. No drama, everything as expected. Hired Whitney to run the bar and she was a pleasure to work with. Julia was very easy to communicate with and flexible of my needs.


March 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

This was our second time renting the Gam Gallery for an event, and once again it was a pleasant experience. Julia and her team are always professional and easy to communicate with , highly recommended space!


January 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

We threw a party at the GAM Gallery to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday. The space was really great, and I would certainly rent it again. For events, there is a counter space which worked great as a bar.


January 2017 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

Julia and her team were incredible. They were readily available, responsive, and helpful from my first inquiry to the moment I handed back the keys. The space is great - high open ceilings, clean, lots of character. Space consists of open front room that funnels into a back aisle with studio spaces leading back to a stairwell (where the bathroom is). Bathroom is a bit sketchy but for the location it was just fine (would recommend bringing extra toilet paper and hand soap). Capacity says 60 but I wouldn't recommend more than 40. Overall, a fantastic experience and everyone who attended our event loved the space. Would absolutely book again!


December 2016 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

I rented the Gam Gallery for my fianc├ęs 30th surprise birthday. The space was clean, bright, and unique. Julia was quick to respond to my emails right from the beginning and communicated extremely well throughout the whole process. I would definitely rent this space again and would recommend it to anyone looking to rent a space for any kind of celebration, an art show, or a pop-up shop.


July 2016 | Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery

Julia and Tarah were great to deal with and the Gam Gallery is really an awesome space! We did an electronic music showcase, but the gallery would be great for art shows, photography, or pretty much any other event... definitely recommended.
