"...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

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.

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.

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?

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.
