We had our engagement party here and it was absolutely perfect! The price for a Sunday party was reasonable and the wonderful views and gorgeous decor are unbeatable. I spent a lot of time researching downtown st. pete and downtown tampa venues and this was the best bang for our buck. What really sold me was the event coordinator, Audrey, who was there for me every step of the way and made the event flow seamlessly and exactly how I wanted it. Every single guest at the party raved about the venue. I could not be more pleased with the venue and the staff here, so much so that we have actually decided to book our wedding here!Sent on 01/11/2018
