Actual cocktail party venue bookings

surprise cocktail party

Saw your space and thought it would be perfect to host a surprise party for my husband here. Would love to do it in the daytime and decorate with some balloons, having some appetizers and drinks. Set up as a cocktail party. Will be inviting 50 people but thinking more like 35-40 people will attend.

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.

non profit fundraiser with cocktails

I am looking to throw a fundraiser for a non profit here. I plan on hosting 50-60 people for cocktails and appetizers after work on the 20th. I have a chef who will be making appetizers and we will be providing booze. Does that sound like a good fit for your space? Kitchen, bar and hangout space, is really all I need and I see you have it all. Also, is there a speaker system for playing music?

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?
