Actual cocktail party venue bookings

cocktail style baby shower

We are looking at this space as a potential venue to host a baby shower. This would be a cocktail style affair with 30-40 people. There will be simple decorations (we will make sure there's no glitter or confetti) and some tables set up with food and drinks (we will make sure we don't have any glass). Can we see the space before booking the venue? If so, can you send me some available times for the evenings this week to come see it?

office cocktail party with dancing

I was hoping to host an office cocktail party at your space on the 9th for 70 people from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM. We are thinking appetizers (no sit-down dinner), casual, dancing, music, drinks, etc. We would also love to showcase a company slideshow throughout the entire night.

backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.

cocktail birthday party

I am planning a Cocktail party for My Sister's and my Birthday. Something low key and chill. Want to have just appetizers and drinks. Need a space that has a lounge type feel with hopefully furniture included. Love the patio on your venue. Would like music, very mellow (Smooth jazz, pop light r & b. Event will be from around 7pm to 10pm I added extra 2 hours prior to set up. Is there a kitchen to heat up appetizers? A bar or event staff to serve drinks?
