cocktail birthday party

I am planning a Cocktail party for My Sister's and my Birthday. Something low key and chill. Want to have just appetizers and drinks. Need a space that has a lounge type feel with hopefully furniture included. Love the patio on your venue. Would like music, very mellow (Smooth jazz, pop light r & b. Event will be from around 7pm to 10pm I added extra 2 hours prior to set up. Is there a kitchen to heat up appetizers? A bar or event staff to serve drinks?

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!!!

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?

backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.
