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?

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.

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.

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?
