Unbearable heat! Poor air flow. Do not book a summertime event here. I attended an event at Jam Factory in July 2018 and it was a very unpleasant experience. None of the ceiling fans were working and the small portable air conditioners did nothing to cool the venue. Im sure it was nearing 40C in there. Guests were soaked with sweat, hair and make-up were ruined, and it was very difficult to enjoy the event. Unforgettable for all the wrong reasons.

I was really thrilled when I found out that the Jam Factory was available for my wedding reception/cocktail party. Everything was going well until the day of... The day of our wedding (Saturday, July 14, 2018) it was relatively warm (approx. 26 degrees C). When we came that morning to set up our decor and tables, we asked if the space was going to be cooled down, because at 11 am it was really stuffy and humid inside. We were reassured that it would be and that all of the portable air conditioning units and their newly installed industrial fans would be turned on as we had previously discussed. When we came that evening it was a DISASTER! The so called "new" industrial fan was not working! I couldn't believe it. We had asked that morning for everything to be turned on. How did they not figure this out and why did they wait to call a repair person (nobody came) until we complained? The blanket of heat that hit you when you opened the door was unbearable. Our event started at 8:30 p.m. and most of our 115 guests arrived by 9:30 p.m. I love the heat and usually don't turn on the AC in my own house even during the hottest of days, but when I say it was hot, that is an understatement. My guests were amazing and didn't let it affect the evening too much..bless them. But I felt so bad and was very embarrassed. People had to go outside to find some relief from the heat inside. Most of my guests were huddled in groups around the air conditioning units. My friends that were pregnant had to leave early because they were concerned about their wellbeing. My make-up and hair was a disaster! Men were sweating so much they wouldn't take off their jackets because they were drenched! Out dessert table was basically mush because all of the icing and decorative toppings were melted. My sister picked up a cupcake and it disintegrated in her hand. My husband and I just gave in to the fact that our wedding would go down as the hottest wedding any of our guests had ever, and will ever attend. Half of my guests/family are Trinidadian and even they couldn't believe they heat in there. On top of the heat, there were some other issues as well. To begin with the night manager that was there was not told about several things that I had discussed with Shannon. They may seem trivial, but when it's your wedding and you've planned everything you want it all to run smoothly and as discussed. The location is a bit hidden, so I had asked if there could be a sign put out for our guests to easily spot the entrance, but this was not done. When I arrived, I was told that we were not allowed to park in the building's only parking area in the front. We had originally been told that we could park up to 3 cars in that location. The night manager said that that was never the case, and made it seem that he was doing me a favour by allowing our one car to be parked there. Lastly, when we came to pick up our items on Monday (as they were closed on the Sunday), we were told that all of our empty alcohol/beer bottles had been picked-up already. We were never told they would be taking them. When I asked where the money went, Shannon told us it went to charity. I think that is a nice gesture, but I would've liked to be a part of that decision. When we told her about the issues we had, she didn't really have anything to say. Not really a sorry, and not really anything actually. She did say that she would forward our message along (I'm assuming to the owners?). We thought somebody would've called to discuss the issues with us, but still 6 months later nothing.Bottom Line:Even with everything that happened, I still love this venue, which is why I gave it 2 stars. I do know older buildings have issues (I live in a house build in 1887) with air flow, but I think they could do better. Also, the cost to rent is pricey considering it comes with just the physical space and that's all. The heat issue is a major health and safety concern. Have your wedding/event here only if it is during the cooler months!

We had the pleasure of coordinating a New Years wedding at the Jam Factory, and what an awesome venue! The rustic space with exposed bricks and wood pillars is the perfect backdrop and made it so easy to style! Shannon and her team were also fantastic and so easy to work with. They were quick with responding and were always available! We cant wait to collaborate again soon.
