If you would like more information about the space, or would like to schedule a walk through, please email us at info@wowphilly.com. We receive many inquiries, so please fill out a rental request well in advance of the event so that we have enough time to process everything. Please note that we try our best to respond to everyone. If you do not receive a response, you are more than welcome to send a follow up, however we are a small, independent venue. If we do not reach back out, we may not have the date available or it may not meet the needs of the business.  We appreciate your understanding.

Watts St.& Cambridge St. After 6pm there is free meter parking both sides of E. Girard Ave. btw N. Broad St. & N. 13th St. If you would prefer lot parking, there is a Rite Aide lot on N.E. corner of E. Girard Ave & 13th St. about a block away (they close at 8pm daily, but the lot is park at your own risk, as we don’t have any type of agreement with them).
