"...Beautiful space, delicious cocktails! Nathan was prompt with his responses, and professional in his attitude. We chose the miranda to host our 10 year high school reuinion. Nathan was flexible with us which was necessary because it was hard to get an accurate head count. I appreciate his patience. We..."

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?

baby shower with food and cocktails

My husband and I are expecting a baby and were hoping to have our shower here. Likely 20-30 people, serving a champagne cocktail and beer and platters of sandwiches and salads (or something similar). Would your space be available? THANK YOU!!!

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.

co-ed shower with a cocktail buffet

I am looking to book a space for my upcoming baby shower! It will be a co-ed shower, hosted by my husband and I. We are ideally looking to host a cocktail style, buffet party with no formal sit-down meal. I thank you in advance for your help!
