"...Beautiful space, delicious cocktails! Nathan was prompt with his responses, and professional in his attitude. We chose the miranda to host our 10 year high school reuinion. Nathan was flexible with us which was necessary because it was hard to get an accurate head count. I appreciate his patience. We..."

Actual cocktail party venue bookings

cocktails and live webcast

We need a venue for 30 persons from 4-9pm. There will be cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. As we will also provide a live webcast of the event we would need high-speed WiFi.

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?

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.

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!!!
