Wonderful venue for a wedding. Friendly, efficient, responsive, experienced. Tomek and his staff organize and run a great event and Housing Works is an outstanding tax-exempt charity. Delightful environment. Highly recommended.

We could not have been happier to hold our wedding reception at Housing Works! The whole process of working with them was amazing. It is such a unique place to have a wedding (all your guests will think so, too!), but they are true professionals and know exactly what to do every step of the way. Amanda and Josh were great to work with and our tasting was such a fun preview of the wedding! The day of the wedding, everything was beautiful and went perfectly! The food was delicious, too! Great veggie and vegan options as well!
