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?

30th birthday with art gallery theme

I'm currently looking for a venue to host my 30th birthday party. I had friends write poems and take portraits for this event and wanted to showcase them (either in the form of a book or maybe displayed like an art gallery). We would also like to use your venue to dance. I wanted to know if we would be able to use your venue for a possible art gallery-type vibe and some dancing.

outdoor bday lunch / dinner party

I love your space! I wanted to host my bday lunch/dinner party in the space. We are using this event to raise money for a community garden. We plan on cooking onsite and using the kitchen space would be great. Not sure if you have an outdoor space (parking lot or something). We would also bring a grill to use outside if that is permitted.
