Our private outdoor back garden event space is the perfect place for an intimate gathering, dinner event, party or get together. We love to host baby showers, bridal showers and dinner parties as well as product launches, birthday's and wedding receptions. The space comes furnished with 3 gorgeous rustic wood and metal tables and matching benches for seating. We boast a succulent and cactus garden bursting with seasonal texture and lush plant life. Coming mingle around the fire pit and browse the adjacent retail store. The back garden is strung with just enough market lights to offer a stunning setting for the evenings. This is truly a hidden gem in the heart of Retro Row. We offer ala cart private chef catering, table top decor, plate, napkin, silverware & glass wear rental...and photo booth build out! We have done a planting bar for guests, indigo dye workshops and more. We also have back garden darts, and a blue tooth speaker. Coordinator services are available...should you desire for your get together. You can also bring your own food & decor etc. and just use the space. Do as much as you like, or as little. Just let us know how you like to gather and we can help make your event just what you imagined.
We like to keep it loose, but need to be respectful. The city of Long Beach has a 9:30 sound or dance and we will need to lower the music at 9 and exit the space by 10pm. There is only street parking at this event space.There is NO parking in the driveway to the left of the space what so ever. Do not block this drive, or park in this drive. There is a $300 fine if you do so. Give your self enough time to find parking for load in and unload.
We held our June wedding reception in this lovely space. Melissa was very helpful in planning all the details, and we were able to put together exactly the laid-back, casual evening we envisioned.
We hosted our post-wedding brunch for about 30 people at Melissa’s space. It was clean and elegantly simple, exactly what we were looking for. The greenery does its’ own job as serving as the perfect decorations, so we didn’t need to bring in anything extravagant. Melissa is very easy to work with, very responsive, and lets you know exactly what to expect with the space and how to prepare for your arrival. We can’t thank her enough!
What can I say about this beautiful gem of a location?! My husband and I were blow away at how beautiful the place was for our Wedding Reception. I was born and raised in Long Beach, so to have our reception in my hometown meant the world to me. Melissa is fantastic! She was very hands-on making sure our guest and us were taken care of! And those Tofu Tacos!!!!! <3 I would say the only things to keep in mind prior to any event, parking can be a bit of an issue so preplan ahead; Melissa is great with explaining any parking concerns. And if you do have food that needs to be chilled prior to serving, there is no refrigerator on site, so plan accordingly. Other than that our guest were very happy and so were we! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Melissa for providing so many wonderful things for us on our special day!
Working with Mel was wonderful and everything for my event just flowed with ease. The space is beautiful just as the pictures show and I would highly recommend The Hangout!
