I had my daughter's Prom send off here, nice size for small gatherings. Very clean and nice looking, in the beautiful area of Bronzeville. The owner Kevin and Ms. Elaine were so wonderful and accommodating and flexible. I will definitely book with Kevin again. The pricing was very affordable. Thank you Kevin.

We hosted a surprise birthday for my best friend Diane! Kevin was a great host and he provided everything such as tables, chairs for us! We enjoy the space a lot. There was a kitchen with a sink, kitchen table and microwave to handle our catering food. There was a bathroom, great amenties like the tv, a mini freezer and fridge, & he provided us with a nice 10 inch speaker too! He had a very organize way to providing the key, viewing the place before the actual event & had very great communication and transparency! Everything was great, and there were lots of street parking. I would 100% recommend & rebook!
