    We hosted our wedding reception on 8.18.18 at China Live. It is THE perfect balance of beautiful event space and great restaurant (I did not want to deal with a production-heavy venue that required us to bring everything in and there are very few restaurants in the city that can fit 100+ guests + dancefloor).

    The space and food are incredible, AND the planning leading up to it was seamless and easy. They have everything you need in house - no renting chivari chairs for an extra $12+ a pop. They have a ton of tables options as well as lounge furniture (which was actually secured the week of our event ensuring we wouldn't have to spend on pricey rentals).

    Nicole (the event coordinator) is a rock star among rock stars and makes this venue exceptional. Responsive, organized, thoughtful, she has a great sense of style and is fun. I'm not kidding...party planning was fun with her - she was constantly throwing out ideas for us that I had never even conceived of/knew were an option (e.g., see above re: securing the clutch lounge furniture, sorting out a modified version of their signature cocktail to fit our budget, fixing the menu to serve snacks in cute to-go chinese boxes so guests could keep moving around, directing us to photos on their roofdeck, generally keeping me sane while I was fretting about decor - which actually wasn't even that necessary because the space is lovely, etc.)

    While we only threw a party focused on dancing and food, after going over all the options it's clear the possibilities for this venue are endless - so many beautiful spaces and surprises (a gorgeous speakeasy, a more intimate richly decorated events space, of course the larger event space with a great view of the city, fun nooks and crannies to explore, and the entire lower restaurant and shop beneath).

    I would recommend this venue to anyone who love Chinese food and/or culture. It really was a special and memorable event. My husband and I are proud China Lif-ers .
