The Box has a romantic, historic vibe and is perfect for elegant wedding setups. The food is amazing and the service is top-notch. Our guests complimented its warm and intimate ambiance. Loved everything about it. 100% recommended!

The meeting space was amazing. It had a loft-like architecture with seperate rooms on the first floor, and a 1800's country store and letterpress shop on the ground floor. The shop had beautiful antique items on display. The place hosts some really cool workshops on a monthly basis. One that must not be missed is The Art of Active Networking. Loved the vibe of this place!

The Box served as the perfect venue for my friend's birthday. Leslie, from customer service, was super helpful and quick with the booking and contract process. I loved how the staff was helpful with decorations and set-up. They were present and made sure all our requirements were met, well until the end of the event. I definitely recommend The Box!
