In my three years organizing the holiday party for a local professional organization, Chris Curtis and 1544 Events was easily the most professional, organized, and easy venue to work with. We will definitely continue to work with Chris and host events at 1544 in the future.
The space itself is beautiful — high ceilings with great skylights, beautiful brick wall on one side, and every media capability you can think of including customizable lighting, sound, and 2 projectors.
But as much as the venue was amazing, what really made the day magical was Chris. From my very first conversation with him I could tell that he was going to do everything in his power to make the proposal as perfect as possible [...] I can truly say that I would not be engaged if it wasn't for Chris. I cannot thank him enough.
Beautiful event space. Very cool hip urban vibe. I've been to multiple events there and the space works for larger or smaller groups.
Really exceptional staff. Very helpful and accommodating. I work for a nonprofit that held a fundraising event at this venue and it was not only great, but the staff were incredibly helpful in our planning [ ... ]
The space itself is also amazing — a great fully accommodated gallery-style space with repurposed wood, full kitchen, exposed brick, high ceilings, and more. I highly recommend.
CreativeMornings OAK is a monthly inspirational breakfast lecture series. 1544 Events helped co-host our events at SPUR Oakland in March and May this year and it was so fun to work with them. Chris Curtis is super helpful, and our events would not have happened without his tireless support.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with 1544 Events!
Thank you for supporting the creative community in Oakland.
