    My wife and I were determined to find the perfect location for our wedding reception. The requirements were an open, loft-style event space that we could make our own. When she found The Narrative Loft, she knew it was perfect, and of course, it was!

    The staff was incredibly fun, easy to work with, and very communicative. Since we live in San Francisco, they made planning super easy and streamlined. As we both run our own small businesses, we appreciated working with people who shared our expectation and work ethic.

    Given that it was our wedding, we didn't get a chance to see what the end result would look like until after all the guests had arrived. When we walked into the space, we were stunned at how beautifully everything came together and how happy everyone was!

    We would highly HIGHLY recommend The Narrative Loft for events and would love to throw another party there if we can! To read more on their blog about our wedding and the vendors we used, go here: http://www.thenarrativeloft.com/blog/2016/9/12/what-a-lovely-day

    Many thanks to The Narrative Loft for making our special day perfect!

    This event space is top notch! The space was intimate enough to talk and mingle with everyone but large enough to have multiple activities going on throughout the night. The staff are incredibly attentive and you're given a lot of flexibility how the space is designed. Couldn't have asked for a better location!

    The Narrative Loft was so perfect for our reception! We were looking for a place that had a lot of character and details on it's own so we wouldn't have to decorate it, and the loft definitely had that. However, for the price there wasn't a lot included. We had the space for 10 hours, 3-4 small cocktail type tables, one large wood table (we used for dessert). There are only stairs to get up to the loft so our rental company charged extra to get the tables and chairs upstairs. There is a back counter with kitchen appliances that we would have had to pay for drapes to cover up, but we decided to leave exposed.

    The restrooms are great and the caterers had plenty of space to prepare food in their back kitchen.

    The Loft was the perfect size for our 100 guests.

    Rachel & Michelle were great to work with and sent us lots of pictures of previous weddings to help us with our set-up and use of space. Both very responsive and let us drop in the week of the wedding to figure out final details. They both really wanted our day to be perfect and were very accommodating!


    Overall, we were very pleased with the Loft and would highly recommend!
