    Amazing!

    Shiran and his team are simply amazing. I’m the Vice President of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Bridgeport and was I. Charge of finding hr perfect location for our event.
    We hosted our annual “Hispanic Heritage Month” event at the Knowlton in 2021.
    The location is perfect, there is plenty of parking available for your guest. The Boathouse Room is inviting and had an amazing rustic charm. We had the doors opened to enjoy the River view . All our guests simply loved the venue .

    It is evident by Shiran’s professionalism that’s this is something he has been doing for a long long time.

    The Knowlton is simply the best!!
