“Choosing the right venue for a fashion week is absolutely essential and that’s why we chose to host our inaugural event for Startup Fashion Week at the Crowley Arts Centre. We needed a venue that had all of the right logistics from lighting to backstage prep space for our models, hair and makeup team. We impressed all of our guests including media with a 40+ foot long runway and a beautiful lounge area set up with vendors. The staff were incredibly helpful and willing to pay attention to every detail to make the event a huge success. It is with pleasure that we hope to use this venue again.”
- Jodi Goodfellow, Founder / Executive producer of Startup Fashion Week, June 26th, 2018
“Many thanks to you and your team for hosting such an incredible memorial service for us. We are still getting emails from people about how much they enjoyed it. The food was amazing – more than we ever expected! – and delicious. People stayed and chatted and that was terrific for us to see so many friends, former neighbours and family. You were warm, supportive and helpful throughout a difficult time and we really appreciated it. I hope that future business comes your way as a result of all the people who were there last Saturday!”

“We recently held a joint memorial for our mother and our brother at the Crowley Arts Centre and we were BEYOND IMPRESSED and PLEASED. The empathy, attention to detail, level of service, quality of food, and all the little and large extras that they did for our family was outstanding. We would highly recommend this venue for any event. Thank you so much for making a difficult situation so much better and so wonderfully memorable. Thank you again for everything.”

“We had our annual fundraiser at the Crowley this year and were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of look, atmosphere and overall experience. We were allowed in the venue the day before our event, which was a huge plus. Nick and the rest of the staff were nothing but kind and helpful in the run up and during the course of our event-we couldn’t praise them enough. The venue played a huge part in the success of our event and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that.”

We were very pleased with the overall outcome of the conference and judging from the comments we received from the attendees, the event was very much appreciated.
Please give our thanks also to your employees, who ensured that the whole day went smoothly (set up, coat check, sound & audio, food). The breakfast buffet looked beautiful and the vegetarian wraps for lunch were delicious.
Thank you again for your contribution; we hope that there will be other opportunities in the future where we might be able to collaborate.”

“Mr. Patulli was able to provide outstanding coordination on a very short time frame, and was able to do so all within the company’s tight budget. He was able to provide solid recommendations on food and alcohol preparation, as well as the band Replay, and general party details.
The event team at the Crowley Arts Centre was upbeat, cheerful and highly accomodating, making the event all that more enjoyable. Mr. Patulli was even hands-on on the day of the event; managing and coordinating on site.
The Crowley Arts Centre is spacious, clean and perfectly decorated for a business venue. Situated a stone’s throw from downtown Montreal, the Centre is ideally located for such events.
Mr. Patulli and Team were proven to be pragmatic and unfailingly reliable with the company’s special project. We would not hesitate to contact Mr. Patulli and the Crowley Arts Centre with another event.”

“It was such a pleasure to teach my poetry course “writing as prayer” at the Crowley Arts Centre. The creative process of each poet in our circle was nurtured in an environment that holds creativity as sacred. Our needs were generously met by a warm and supportive staff. All we had to do was the work we came to do… create! During our eight week session, great things happened. I highly recommend Crowley as a place and space that nourishes and nurtures the creative spirit.”

“Everything about your venue was perfect for our event: Comfortable seating, great sound, and superior quality film projection that allowed us to recreate an authentic experience of a night at the movies for our families. And all of this was combined with the support of your courteous and professional staff who were there to assist us every step of the way…We just wanted you and your staff to know how much of a difference you are making in our community, and we wanted you to know how much it’s appreciated, by us – and by those families who will never get the chance to thank you.”
- Gary White, Director of Westmount YMCA
“Nick and his staff, especially Cath, at the Crowley Arts Centre were phenomenal.
Our wedding ceremony, cocktail service and reception were well organized and aligned with all of our needs and special requests. The transition was smooth from one event to the other and the room was impeccably done, beautiful and exactly as we had asked.
They were very accommodating and worked with us to ensure our wishes were met. Nick was accessible when we had questions or concerns, which was important to us as we do not live in Montreal. Our food options needed to vary from meat to vegan and even gluten free, and I was able to design our very own tailored menu. Nick even went a step further and surprised me with gold table clothes instead of white which matched out wedding colours.
We are so thankful to Nick and his team for their support in making our special day come to life.”
- Debra & Rome, Happy couple
