Actual cocktail party venue bookings

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.

Outdoor 30th birthday with drinks

I'm looking for a great place to throw my 30th birthday party this year. I'm hoping to have a group of about 60-80 people for a casual (but possibly large) party... with appetizers and drinks. I'm going for a casual drop-by and hangout vibe... with music on a sound system (an iTunes playlist)... and beer and wine only. I've been toying with the idea of hiring a bartender or two to have a signature cocktail... but I'm not sure yet. Does this sound like something your space would work for? If so, I'd love to hear what you think a grand total cost would be. Lastly -- do you charge a separate fee for access to the outdoor areas?

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?

leadership workshop for alumni office

I work for the alumni relations office, and we are looking to have a Leadership Workshop in order to choose our next board members and president for the Alumni Club (a volunteer-run organization). We are hoping to use your lovely home as a perfect location for this off-site/team building event. We will provide lunch for the group and facilitate the workshop and breakout sessions. The purpose is to have ice-breakers, a brainstorming session, and then a vote for the next leadership. We will end the day with a congratulatory cocktail.
