Bright, modern space with 15' ceilings and a full kitchen. Bright, spacious, and open. There are two bedrooms and a bath on the mezzanine level if you'd like to book it for an overnight stay in addition to your event. It's great for smaller (60 people or less) events and special occasions. Parking is usually available on Ashland in front of the building, if not you can park on the curb cut between the street and sidewalk; it's next to the garage. See the last picture for a map. There are 10 chairs in addition to the couch and accent chairs. We have an extra folding table and extra chairs if needed, and many people bring more. The pool table can easily be converted to a table as well. Optional add-ons include the promotion of your event using our exterior digital sign ($75.00/day), or even an overnight stay in our newly remodeled sleeping accommodations on the mezzanine level. Overnight stay if you've booked an event: $275/night. If you'd like this option you'll need to book the space until midnight and let us know you'd like to spend the night. Check-out is 10 am the next day. Loud music and smoking tobacco are strictly prohibited at this property. Other than that, as long as you leave the place as you found it, you can use the space as you wish. We collect a $600 *refundable* security deposit up front that will be returned as long as there's no damage or lingering smells (like cigarette smoke). Here is a 3D tour most people find eliminates the need to visit the space: https://www.zillow.com/view-3d-home/49eb5633-2243-45d8-896f-b7fbbae832c9?setAttribution=mls&wl=true&utm_source=dashboard
