What People Say

We had our company holiday party at The Ellis and I was told it was the best party our office has ever held. This is all thanks to Lauren and her team for taking care of everything every step of the way. I had very little to stress about during the entire process and am looking forward to having many more parties at The Ellis.

Anna W.

The Ellis was the perfect place for our annual company retreat. It’s rustic industrial feel was a great change of pace from our typical meeting spaces. Our coordinator was extremely helpful and prompt with communication. The catering staff was friendly and the food was delicious. We could not have been happier and would definitely recommend to others.
