Written by:

Finding the perfect location for your event can be one of the hardest parts of planning it — whether it’s a shower, corporate gathering, or an event to benefit the community, the effort and time that goes into making the vision a reality is still the same. And with many venues, there are limited options when it comes to set up, decor, and menus. Lucky for us, we have the perfect venue offering tons of versatility right in our backyard.

This versatile venue is a blank canvas of floor-to-ceiling windows and natural light, creating the perfect setting to host any kind of event you need, from seminars + conferences to baby showers + bar mitzvahs, Antique Loft is equipped to make it happen {and they will}.
