“BrainStorm is the best new venue space in Cincinnati. I highly recommend this space for anyone. It was truly a worry-free meeting. They thought of everything. I will definitely be suing this venue again in the future.”
“BrainStorm is the perfect setting for your team to get away from every day distractions. This updated space is classic, elegant and comfortable all at the same time and the staff is wonderful!”
“Our company held our recent meeting at BrainStorm and we were blown away by the setting, the hospitality and the overall responsiveness of the staff. You won’t go wrong using this venue and we will certainly be back!”
“BrainStorm is the kind of space that kindles group energy in any meeting. They took care of all the details, including a fully equipped kitchen, private and closed meeting spaces, and even a lounge area for when the meeting needs to be less formal. The location is great and parking is directly across the street… so your team doesn’t need to park 4 blocks away to get to the meeting. I’m digging this space!”
“Great place! Our leadership team wanted to get offsite for a meeting and found BrainStorm to be the perfect fit. It’s a unique urban environment, that’s a cool and highly functional for a business meeting or really any type of meeting. We’ll definitely use it again!”
“I attended a lovely event there last Friday. It’s a great, modern space for small business meetings, as well as social events.”
“Fantastic venue! Modern, crisp, sharp. Visited one of their events as a guest and was very impressed by their attention to detail and great facility, not to mention, the staff is tops!”
