The VAULT Layout


This was a terrific event space! Reminds me of some that I have visited in Brooklyn, NY. It has a somewhat "Industrial cool" feel. Brick walls, pendant lights, wood flooring. I would definitely suggest using this space — Carol S.

This is a very nice venue, I could see it being used for events intimate weddings birthday parties etcetera. We went on black trivia night and the atmosphere was chill —
