I’ve never ever been but the reviews from friends were great. Strictly Soul had their party here and I found the venue accommodating in more ways than one. The space was huge and there was ample seating for guests. I found the bar service really good given the amount of people needing serving and how they handled the busyness of it all.

What a cool spot for perveyors of good food and interesting art! It's a fairly large exhibit that's attempting to make as much use of available space. There's plenty of different types of art here all with its own unique touch. Some older, some new. The food selection isn't bad and I've been informed that the breakfasts are quite enjoyable. However I was there at night to enjoy the first Thursday of the month events. Staff are friendly and the venue itself is quite clean. I will be back for more.

Very cool gallery. There are 3 levels and all had very diverse types of art in different mediums (paint, origami and textiles on canvas, clothing, wire work, wood). Absolutely loved it!

Beautiful art gallery with 3 floors with a bar for food and drinks. Seating is limited, which is expected expected of course 😉.What made this place an enjoyable experience is the vibe and ambience of the place. Great music, good service and trendy people everywhere.I sure I'll become a month regular.
