Nov. 2023 • Friends
My friend and I went to Stratford specifically to attend an intimate venue concert by Gathering Sparks. We loved this venue and will definitely return. The room is small, and patrons are almost one with the performers on stage, which creates a cozy atmosphere. Great drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, popcorn and comfort treats. Comfortable sofas for folks to feel like they are in their own living room. Very reminiscent of the 'house concert' feeling. Prices very affordable.
