How to Get There
We recently threw a fashion pop-up event in the Art Bar space. The blank canvas and charm of the wood floors and original building was perfect to create our own look and feel. The staff was very professional. The event coordination was great with quick responses and excellent pricing. Overall, a great event experience! Would highly recommend this venue moving for any event needs.
If you want charm, here is the place. The staff seem proud to work there with art exhibits and their Sunday Drag Brunch (Make a reservation) we didn't :(. The elevator requires an attendant to operate but they come on demand. A trip to the past. In walking distance to the The Theatre centre and the Shameful Tiki Room. Parking is a bit awkward. Its underground and across the street.
We stayed at the Gladstone initial because of the location. But having stayed there for 3 nights we would absolutely stay there again. The people are amazingly friendly and welcoming. The rooms are lovely. Each different. And each named after an artist. There are art exhibits which are open to the public. The restaurant and bar both have great drinks and a nice menu. Famous for their Drag Brunch. Fun shows, exhibits. A fun place to stay!
