"Great cocktail party", An Eventective User from Boston
Surprise hidden gem in downtown Boston's South End, wonderful space for a cocktail party of 50 or 150 or more. Lots of character, spacious, a little-known place that has a terrific party space.

"Awesome venue for family-friendly community event", TWAGY from Cambridge, Massachusetts
I recently planned a major fundraiser (Boston Jerkfest) for a non-profit cultural organization at this venue. It was an ideal venue because we had the opportunity to use both the in-door space and out-door space and we were able to offer a variety of activities for different audiences. We offered live music, a Rum and Brew Tasting, and food and cultural craft vendors sold their wares. The atmosphere was fun and visitors were engaged. The staff of the venue is extremely professional and responsive to all needs. This was the first year of holding this event on the site and it we were able to accommodate about 1,000 people per session for two session. I highly recommend this venue for your fundraisers, weddings, or corporate events. We would love to use the venue again next year.

"Beautiful event venue!", Boston, MA
We had a great event for the fourth year in a row in the auditorium for 200+ volunteers for Generations Incorporated. It is a bright and beautiful space that allowed us to have a sit-down breakfast for 200 people comfortably. The staff are incredibly helpful and gracious. I highly recommend this venue.
Management Response:
Thank you for your lovely recommendation. We enjoyed having you here at the College and look forward to working with you again.

With kind regards,

"A hidden gem for events and parties", An Eventective User from Boston, MA
If you are looking for a great space for 300 or less, you should definitely check out the Ben Franklin Institute of Technology.

They have a lovely lobby space for the cocktail reception and their auditorium makes a wonderful, intimate ballroom.

We brought in Max Ultimate Food to do the catering and overall design of the room.

We brought in Derek Wiles from Event Illuminations to light up the room so it looked incredible.

We brought in PSAV to provide a fabulous onstage screen, projection and sound systems.

Parking for 90 is diagonally across the street at Atelier.

What more could you ask for? It was a special night and a lovely, hidden gem!


Management Response:
Thank you for your rave reviews of our beautiful rental space. We very much enjoyed seeing your grand gala come together. It was truly quite impressive.

We look forward to working with you again in the future.

With kind regards,

"Great Conference Venue", An Eventective User from Boston HERC
Boston HERC celebrated their Passport to College 2013 Closing Celebration at BFIT and it was wonderful! The venue has a warm and cozy feel to it and the staff was very helpful and supportive! It would have been perfect if there was parking available for our students and families, but everyone managed to park in affordable nearby places. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to have a great time and have everything to go smoothly! Great venue!!!
