"...The space was wonderful, and perfect for our event - a cocktail-style Homecoming Dance for our workout group. The guests remarked many times about how great the space was, and how much they loved the eclectic style. We loved the lights over the dance floor that gave the space..."

"...Wonderful venue! We had a great time with a small (15 ppl) murder mystery cocktail party. I was glad that we had the option to go downstairs to the bar and didn't have to pay for a caterer. It would have been more convenient to get it catered, but..."

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.

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 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?

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.
