Additional information


I am the Director of Events at Heartland Film, and we hosted our 2023 Indy Shorts International Film Festival at Tinker House Events. I don’t have enough good things to say about Miranda and the owners of the space! As an organization that hosts events throughout the city, this team was one of the most enjoyable to work with that I’ve ever experienced. Miranda is responsive, engaged, welcoming and professional. The space fit our Summer Camp theme perfectly, and they allowed us to customize the space with our decor. They even offered to add new hooks into their ceiling beams for us if we wanted! On the day of the event, the bar and event staff were friendly and efficient. The drinks are great and reasonably priced. Our caterers even said this is their favorite space to come serve at! We utilized the in-house tech and both projector screens, which functioned well for us. I’d love to return here for a future event!

We hosted a game night at Tinker House. This my first time seeing the space and it was absolutely beautiful! Miranda was amazing to work with. Customer service was top-notch. The staff behind the bar was super friendly and helpful.  I would most definitely use this space again and recommend it to friends for events.
