My Double Quince
I threw myself a 30th birthday party (Double Quinceañera) and so happy I chose the upstairs lounge at Candela La Brea! It was a perfect size, accommodating 100 - 150 guests. I was able to pick out pink and silver uplighting to match the theme of my party. The DJ was able to easily set up and the bar staff was great! Omar and Hector were so helpful during the night and the entire process from the very start of booking for my big day. Thank you to the both of you.Sent on 09/11/2019

Gorgeous Event Space - High School Reunion
We worked with Omar and his team to host our 10 Year High School Reunion and it was the most amazing event! It's a popular event space, so be sure to secure it in advance (we were lucky enough to secure it with only 4 months lead time). We had about 160 attendees and the half room worked perfectly - there was more than enough space for people to eat, move around, dance, get drinks at the bar, and just stand around and talk without it feeling crowded. We opted for the taco buffet and it tasted great. Omar and team were so accommodating and worked with all of my crazy requests, as well as with all of the third party vendors we hired (photobooth, casino tables, etc).Sent on 06/26/2019
It’s the perfect place to host your grad party or high school reunion or any other social event. 100% would definitely recommend. Thank you Omar & team!
