About Marvimon Productions

Marvimon Productions was born out of a love for bringing people together in inspired spaces. We opened our first venue out of our co-founders’ home in Chinatown. Originally an abandoned automobile showroom, our team transformed the space into an open-air loft filled with vintage finds and a private courtyard with vertical gardens. In the 20 years since, we’ve applied the same spirit to properties in Culver City, the Arts District, LA’s North Sea neighborhood and Rancho Mirage, near Palm Springs. 

We take neglected, overlooked spaces and lovingly reinvent them with art, decor and unexpected details. Repurposed materials, objects, plants and light are mixed in with the old and original in unexpected ways. Our experimental designs are informed by each site’s history both real and imagined; SmogShoppe was an auto service station and Millwick was a livery for beasts of burden. Valentine, Grass Room and Flora Chang were most recently old marijuana factories. And Desert Island, our newest venue, is a lush oasis in a sea of desert sand.

We encourage you to explore the images and stories of our venues to discover how these spaces could make an ideal location for your private event, ceremony, reception, live performance, get-together, film shoot or production. When you’re ready to dig into the details, we’re here to help bring your celebration to life. Contact us for tours, reservations and guidance.

Does Marvimon Productions provide event planning or coordination services?

We are happy to provide tailored recommendations for planners, event producers and other vendors during the booking and planning process. While we do not offer planning and coordination services in-house, we do require a design meeting with our Events Team to explore floorplan and layout options. Our Events Team specializes in helping to bring your overall vision to life in collaboration with your hired team.

In addition, we require a Marvimon Productions Site Management Team to be on-site during your rental period to oversee guest arrival, ensure equipment is working effectively and help address venue related requests. Fees for these services are reflected on our rate sheets.

Do you have an in-house caterer? Or can I bring in an outside caterer?

Marvimon does not have an exclusive or required in-house caterer, allowing our clients the flexibility to choose the right culinary and bar team to fit a range of budgets and needs. In order to assist our clients in connecting with experienced catering teams, we have cultivated relationships with the best catering companies in Southern California and we will provide recommendations from our preferred list during the booking process. Catering and bartending vendors who are unfamilar with our locations are subject to an approval and on-boarding process that must be completed at least 30 days in advance of the event.

Is parking available on-site at Marvimon Productions venues? Will guests be charged for parking?

Our venues have very limited (or no) on-site parking. For that reason, clients are required to hire our exclusive valet company, White Label Valet, to ensure that guests have a stress-free arrival and departure experience and to limit our impact on the surrounding neighborhoods.
