Guestbook comments from the owner

Thomas was an amazing host. He was so easy to communicate with, and he was always available to answer any questions. The loft itself is absolutely gorgeous. We used the space for my rehearsal dinner, which was more like a big party. It was perfect.

We just wanted to thank you for providing such a wonderful place for family and friends in downtown. We had such a great time gathering at the loft for my husband's 40th birthday and taking advantage of the phenomenal location. Your loft is truly a gem! We look forward to staying again in the near future!

Great place for a big birthday party!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the loft for my mom's 70th bday. The owner, Tom, was great to work with from the very start... Working with me on several special requests. The space was beautiful and everyone remarked that it was the perfect space for our 50-ish guests between the ages of 4-80! There was plenty of room for food, a drink station, conversation space and a makeshift dance floor! Lots of parking nearby too! No complaints! Highly recommend!!

Great Party Venue!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our work Fall Party here and it turned out amazing! Plenty of room for 30+ people to eat and mingle. There was also room for catered dinner and a bar. Will definitely rent the loft again for our next function!
