5 Reasons to Select A Loft For Your Next Event:

 

1. Lofts Are A Great Blank Canvas

Do you often wish you could bring in your own decor and not be restricted to what the venue has on hand? Lofts will give you a lot of opportunities to get creative with your event design. Most lofts come with minimalist design and furniture - meaning you can get creative and turn it into whatever you had in mind as your event vision. You won’t be limited to what the venue can and can’t accommodate.


Venue Pick: Laguna Beach gets some stellar sunsets, which is just one of the reasons why Skyloft is a great venue choice. This pet-friendly locale offers smokehouse meats, fresh catches, and live music - plus the option to book private events in a space that overlooks the Southern California Rivera.

2. Lofts Often Include Extras

When you’re shopping around for a loft venue, keep an eye out for extra amenities. Some boast add-on spaces like rooftop gardens, terraces, and sky-level balconies. Not only will this give you more square footage to customize, but it can also offer guests another location for continuing their conversation, ducking out for a phone call, or simply taking in the skyline.

3. Lofts Are Versatile

A loft is like a great Little Black Dress - it can be dressed up or down. Most lofts have a chic industrial feel (exposed brick, steel beams) that is a great backdrop for any event, as a formal black-tie event, or for a more casual affair like a birthday party. It all depends on what you envision, but no matter what it will always look trendy.

Venue pick: Stillwater, Minnesota is the home to Loft at Studio J, an 1895 building that was renovated in 2013 to create a unique environment for your entertaining needs.

It offers two VIP rooms and versatile space for the event specifications of your choosing.

 

4. Loft Spaces Are Everywhere!

When people think of lofts, an industrial space in a bustling downtown neighborhood often comes to mind. But the truth is that lofts exist in nearly every area, from urban to rural. From rustic barns to reinvented grain mills, you’ll delight in the options for a loft party in your own neck of the woods - and find some cool places you never knew existed.

 

Venue pick: Musicians Playground located in downtown crossing Boston, Massachusetts has 3,000 square foot space is located on the top floor. It features high ceilings, tons of natural light. Designed for the modern professional, it boasts beautiful furniture, a sound system for music, free wireless and workspace, and a kitchen - that would make for a memorable photoshoot, function, or team building event.

5. Lofts Offer a More Intimate, Exclusive Feel

Unlike other venues that may have two or three events happening at one time, when you rent a loft venue it is yours and only yours - this gives you exclusivity to the space and will make your event feel more intimate. Your guests won’t be confused as to where to go, and the open and airiness of a loft is a great ambiance to any soiree.
