  • We had a wonderful experience with MSB. The venue speaks for itself and we were able to add personal touches in every way. We had at least 185 people fit, drink, eat, dance comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful in decor recommendations and the venue provides beautiful furniture pieces to add to the venue. We loved our experience, and guests continue to compliment the beauty of the venue.
