The Event Spot opening soon in PV; now booking

The Event Spot, a venue for large gatherings, opens soon at 6520 E. 1st Street, Suite B, in Prescott Valley, and, owner Ken Foote said, reservations are being accepted.

The facility has 4,000 square feet of space, in the form of a large main room and two 250-square-foot breakout rooms. Five 75-inch flat-screen video monitors are in the main room, along with a digital projector and a 100-inch screen.

Guests will enter through a patio, and then take a bridge to cross a water feature stocked with koi.

Foote, who also owns of FooteWork Auto License and Title Service, said, “Last fall, my general manger at FooteWork was looking for a place to hold a Christmas party for our company and he was having a hard time finding a venue.”

Foote had also been trying to find a tenant for a large space he owns, so he combined the two and came up with The Event Spot.

“We’re booking up things already,” he said, and they would be likely to open in early June.
