We rented the space for a sentimental gathering of family and friends, with numerous people speaking. Clara was extremely easy to deal with, very responsive with her communications, and helped out in every way possible. Our needs were very specific, and she met every single one of them happily. She was a delight to work with, and the space itself was absolutely phenomenal. Very many of our participants remarked on how amazing it was, and wondered how we were ever able to find such a gem. If the picture looks like your cup of tea, I highly recommend it. It is spectacular.

Amazing space with a great host! Clara is extremely gracious and helpful. We hosted our company holiday party here for 35 people and the space was perfect. Great elevation so we never felt too crowded. Highly recommend for music performances as the space has great acoustics. If you're looking for something unique in the heart of the East Village I can't recommend this space enough!
