- Fantastic venue - Super nice and very responsive team - Good value & location - We had an absolutely fantastic time
The owner is THE BEST! We had an amazing time for our 30th bday party!!! The venue was cool, we had some requirements and Habib was very helpful in replying to us fast and ensure there would be no problem in terms of “logistics”. I strongly suggest to have your party here, it’s a convenient location, the basement is simple but super cool, the vibes are so right and again the staff is great!
Eventually the closet was not accessible during the night, it was a really minor thing but some of our friends would have preferred using it to keep their stuff.
Very friendly and helpful staff. A fantastic venue for group events and a very well located venue.
Some slight confusion from the bar staff about how we could use our tab, but otherwise absolutely great
Super space, fun and friendly staff, our host was communicative and helpful accommodating our requests and we had a fantastic party!
