When you have 6 people or more in your group, it's a party! You can choose to have your party with us during our daytime hours or have a completely private party after-hours.
You and your guests will be treated to personalized and private guidance by our expertly trained staff. During your party time, the Custom Studio is reserved for your group only. If your party is after-hours, the entire shop will be closed for your event, so you can enjoy the entire space privately with your guests.
