POP-UP DINNER AT THE SPACE
What a beautiful evening chef Glory Simon hosted yesterday at the Space.
The delicious popup dinner menu was absolutely stunning.

“In late July 2011, I was standing on Joan's steps talking to her about the pop-up and underground dining experiences I had been working on when she suggested I do my own dinner in the new 6608 space. I was terrified and did not feel at all ready or worthy of cheffing my own 5 course underground dining experience but I accepted the challenge to stand at my edge and go. ALL OF MY RECENT CATERING EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK HELPED MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO TURN THIS BEAUTIFUL GIANT SOUND STAGE INTO A SUPPER CLUB WITH SEPARATED KITCHEN, DINING AREA, BAR AND THANKS TO THE FURNISHINGS THERE, LOUNGING AREA. IT WAS TRULY INCREDIBLE TO SEE MY VISION COME TO LIFE, starting with forming the kitchen where there was none and finishing with musicians who pulled up chairs and played music at the table while my guests ate their wheat- free, organic, star anise scented apple crisps with passion fruit caramel and freshly whipped raw cream. Thanks Joan and Carlo!”

PARTY AT THE SPACE

We had the opportunity to host the Birthday Party of a dear friend of ours at the Space. What they created was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for a beautiful evening. We wish you the best birthday!

“My 30th Birthday was one of the most incredible nights of my life! THE ATMOSPHERE REPRESENTED EVERYTHING I LOVE. MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND I WERE ABLE TO DANCE ALL NIGHT, SING TO OUR HEARTS CONTENT, CREATE BEAUTIFUL ART, WATCH SCOTTISH FILMS, PAINT OUR FACES, RIDE A MOTORCYCLE, AND NO HOLDS-BARRED CELEBRATE! Thank You for the room to play, be silly and express ourselves, that is what made that evening so memorable.”
