Testimonials

“We had a wonderful experience booking and hosting our recently-turned-7-year-old daughter’s birthday at CCT! Staff saw her vision and executed it nicely. We’d definitely recommend this venue to other parents looking for an out-of-the-box birthday experience for their kids.”

“We had our daughter’s first birthday at CCT, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was set up just how we asked and it’s BYOB! Our guests had a great time and kept saying what a wonderful space it was. Thanks again!”
