Great space however it’s not possible to turn off the lights in the back which posed a bit of a problem for us. If you want the back room to be used as a party space be warned it will be lit like a gymnasium.
Consistently great to work with!
This studio/gallery is amazing and Cindy has been incredibly easy to deal with. Communication was quick and clear, the space was clean and well maintained, the walls were covered in beautiful art, and she even arranged an extra in-person meeting when we needed to get additional details. Just a pleasure to work with and we are so excited to book this space again.
This is an awesome venue at an awesome price— perfect for community events where budgets can be tight. Just because it's an amazing value, doesn't mean you're sacrificing quality. I looked at four other options on here, and this was by far the best. Its beautifully lit, well ventilated, clean, and spatious. The location is amazing as well; not a single person had trouble parking. We accommodated roughly 100 people without issue. Pretty much nothing but praise for the space. Plenty of amenities as well. Asia was a pleasure to work with and extremely responsive during the event. She helped me understand everything I needed to know in order to use the venue effectively. I hope to host here again! Here's my favourite photo from the event: https://m.imgur.com/FvHxQsz
Asia was a fantastic host and my group will very much be looking to work with her in the future.
Space was perfect for our film shoot! LED lights in the building made our scene easy to light properly. Photos are exactly as it looks. Thanks again!!!
Great accessible space, Asia was a pleasure to work with!
