    Such a rad industrial spot!

    I love how customizable this space is and the bones are gorgeous. Love the brick walls and exposed pipes. I'm the owner of Tayler Ashley Photography and I had the pleasure of shooting here. The vibe is SO cool and industrial! Such a magical place to get married

    We couldn't have found a more perfect venue!

    There are a lot of venues in downtown San Diego, and many of them are awesome, but we ultimately chose Sandbox for a few reasons: 1) The design. The building is just gorgeous, and the lighting is incredible. I loved the look and feel of the upstairs loft area, and it was plenty spacious for everyone to hang out and get ready before the event. 2) The outdoor space. It was so awesome to be able to do a cocktail hour outside and to have the option for additional reception space (and extra restrooms). Our guests spent a lot of time on the back patio! We knew we wanted a food truck caterer, and the truck was able to just park and set up out there without a problem. 3) The staff. We were immediately drawn to Alex's calm and organized personality. He was a great communicator throughout the process, and we genuinely enjoyed working with him. 4) The flexibility. We were planning our wedding from out of town, and Alex worked with us and our vendors to make sure drop off, set up, and pick up happened without any stress. Sandbox's price was fair, and the amenities and bonuses made the decision easy for us. We are so glad we were able to get married there!
