Actual cocktail party venue bookings

cocktails and live webcast

birthday cocktail party

I was wondering if your space would be available to use for a 30th birthday party on the 27th from 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm. I am not anticipating having more than 30 people in attendance for appetizers, cocktails, and dessert. I would be interested in finding out what is available in the space or what we would need to bring (tables to lay out food/drinks, seating capacity, speakers to play background music). Also, is there anyway to see the space i person? I live in the city so if there is an opportunity to view before the day of the event, that would be really helpful.
