We celebrated our birthday at the Cobalance on a very hot day. The events manager was super helpful and provided extra fans to make sure the venue was cool enough for our guests. The events manager was excellent and communicated with us throughout the evening on music, table arrangements, lighting, and more. In the lead up to our event, Bhush communicated very well and provided all the information we needed beforehand. He even arranged a virtual tour with us. I would definitely reccomend the venue to anyone looking for a cool location and friendly staff.
- the ambience and cosiness - the opportunity to bring your own food and decorations
- No air/con, despite it being in the list of provided services. We were only given 2 fans that were barely sufficient for 60 people. The heat was unbearable, as it's a lower ground floor, and we were not allowed to open the door to the stairs because we were playing music - as one would do during a party. - We were not given clear instructions on how to operate in the venue. We had to chase the venue manager a few days before the event, asking basic questions like guest list, etc. - The Arcade game was not working and no alternative/ solution provided - The pool table was not sitting straight, therefore impossible to use - Music was hard to manage, as the playlist was controlled from a tablet in the kitchen upstairs - The music speakers only worked ok in one room, they were very weak in the rest of the venue. This was a big problem, because it really affected the vibe of the party, we could not even recognise the songs being played, they could only be heard in the room at the back - The bouncer asked us to clear the venue at 12.30am, because he said everyone should be out by 12.45am, even though we paid until 1am. - The bouncer asked me, the organiser of the party, if I was on the guest list. He didn't know my name and insisted I should have been in the guest list. - We found the venue in "office" mode, full of desks and chairs, and it had to be rearranged during our allocated time. We had to chase the venue managers in order to get some assistance in doing so. - We had to chase and ask for every single service that was listed as "provided by the venue" Overall the venue may work well for work events, but really needs to be revisited and improved for events such birthday parties. Much clearer instructions and better communication from the management team are necessary in order to achieve a good level of service.
Team were lovely and the space is bright and airy - would recommend and use again!
Great space for a small event we had a workshop and social space and the bar and it worked brilliantly. Very helpful staff. Excellent location.
Nothing, highly recommend this venue
