    Perfect Engagement Party

    I rented the back lounge and roof deck for a surprise engagement party and could not have been happier. From the initial booking to the very last drink poured, the Circ staff exceeded my expectations in every regard. The back room has great ambiance for more intimate gatherings without feeling cramped. We had 40 guests with room to spare, although the main area could easily accommodate larger parties. The service was top-notch and the food was great; I would highly recommend!
