“The entire process was so incredibly easy and wonderful.”
“We booked the Holocene for a private staff holiday party, and the entire process was so incredibly easy and wonderful! Jarkko was responsive to all of my (many, many) questions, accommodating, and great at providing suggestions and recommendations to help make our event a success. The other staff that evening – the AV tech, the bartenders, etc. – were helpful and attentive, as well. Our staff had nothing but great things to say about the venue and the service we received. I would gladly book another event at the Holocene in the future!”

“We couldn’t have asked for a better party. "

“ We've been having these parties for over ten years and this was our favorite party yet. "
"We had our yearly client party at Holocene and couldn't have been happier. It's a large party with many moving parts and at Holocene it all went perfectly — food, drinks, music and our multitude of special events. The bartenders and staff were very helpful and accommodating and our coordinator was fabulous at coming up with party suggestions (including an amazing specialty slushy drink). They were also really helpful coordinating with the catering company, something we’ve had issues with in the past at other event spaces. We've been having these parties for over ten years and this was our favorite party yet. The place looked great, guests were happy and we had a worry free night. For the first time we could enjoy our own party!”
