Hosting a private gathering for your family, friends, or co-workers can be stressful. One of the most stressful decisions that you will have to make during the planning process is the selection of the venue. There are many different types of venues available for private events, from banquet halls to reception centers.
If you are looking for a trendy, modern, and convenient venue, consider the benefits of hosting your event in a restaurant like The Cedar Door.
1. Personalized Menu
Restaurants serve as a great resource for fabulous food. You can implement your favorite foods into your party plan by working with the chef to create a custom menu specifically for your event. A small curated menu gives your guests options but limits these options to a manageable number.
The kitchen staff will be grateful that you want to provide only a few special selections for your event, and your guests will appreciate having menu items specifically for your party that cannot be ordered elsewhere.
In order for any party or event to be successful, you need to create the right ambiance. Decor plays a key role in this area, but investing in decorations and lighting can be costly. Fortunately, restaurants have already taken care of the decor for you.
It's essential that a restaurant set a certain mood. Interior designers and consumer researchers spend months poring over the design of a restaurant prior to construction. This means that your event space will already be appointed with the furnishings, lighting, and wall decor required to create an exciting atmosphere for your party guests. The best part is, this ambiance will come at no additional cost to you.
3. Full Bar
Alcohol is served at many upscale parties and events. Bringing in a bartender and stocking a full bar can be costly. When you make the choice to host your event at a restaurant, you can take advantage of the bar that is already established within the restaurant.
You can work with the bartender to create a signature drink for your event, and you can use some of the money saved on decor to offer your guests free drinks throughout the evening. Guests can order anything they want, and you won't have to worry about purchasing mass quantities of liquor that may or may not get used during your party.
Private event spaces within restaurants can provide the perfect option for a party that is affordable and classy.
