Omg what a night!! We transformed the room to a 90s party. The space was perfect for about 50 people. I paid to bring my own food and drinks which was perfect. We were not disturb. The staff were friendly. The decorations of the room where perfect and I would defiantly book again. My friends all liked the space and would book as well.
The only thing is bins or big bags we brought some but needed more
I booked Esquires Coffee for my birthday celebration. The Downstairs section was booked for the date/time I had in mind, but Vivien said that the Upstairs section was free and booked it for me. This review will be for the Upstairs. The booking process was incredibly smooth and Vivien, Sandra, and Martika were super helpful in getting everything arranged entirely through the Tagvenue platform. The space was absolutely lovely. Great lighting, good seating, and also a lot of room to just mill around in groups of people. I loved the aesthetic of the place. The food was delicious, especially all the baked goods in the Sweet Platter. The vegan rolls in the Veggie Platter were also a huge hit and were the first thing we completely wiped out. The selection of teas/coffees/smoothies/ was already really good. I had also informed the staff about food allergies and dietary restrictions among the attendees, and they were very helpful and carefully labelled everything that could be of concern. Thank you for a wonderful evening! My friends are definitely going to consider Esquires Coffee for their own events as well.
Not a big negative, but I wish the menu had included the actual number of items in each meat/veggie/sweet platter (instead of mentioning approximately how many people each platter feeds). We ended up with way too much food (although a few last-minute cancellations definitely added to that) and could definitely have ordered more efficiently. Everyone went home with little goodie bags and we still had quite a bit left over after that.
The staff are amazing - so kind and super helpful in every way! LOVED the deco and vibe it gave!
The furniture are restrictive. It was awkward to have a boardroom type set up for a group dinner. I had to put together a low round table and several awkward rectangular tables.
The venue is nice and clean
Some staff didn't know what was going on making it difficult
