We just had our daughter’s wedding reception at The Narrative Loft and it was a fantastic experience! Not only is it a fun, artsy venue, but Michelle Lee and the staff are absolutely marvelous to work with! We were given much freedom for decorating and flexible hours to operate in. With the colorful walls, the hardwood floors, the high ceilings, a few added twinkle lights and flowers, the place was transformed to a magical venue for a wedding reception. We had 120 guests and still room for a dance foor! I highly recommend The Narrative as a new venue option in Santa Barbara!!
