Questions and Answers
IS THERE A MINIMUM?
Yes! There are event minimums that apply when booking at Venue 131. We have food and beverage minimums that vary from day of week, timing and size of the event. To ensure the highest quality of service we also have certain staffing requirements based on the number of guests and style of service being requested. All associated event minimums are set forth in the Venue Reservation Agreement.
HOW DO I BOOK AN EVENT?
In order to book and secure your event, a Venue Reservation Agreement must be completed and signed by you and the corresponding initial payment must be paid. All bookings are made on a first come, first serve basis. Unless and until a Venue Reservation Agreement is executed and the initial payment called for in your Venue Reservation Agreement is paid, no event shall be deemed booked.
HOW LONG SHOULD I PLAN TO HOST MY EVENT?
A typical event runs on a time frame of three hours depending on the length of the meal and other factors such as business presentations and gift openings. Cocktail receptions typically are hosted for one hour prior to meal service or two to three hours with passed or stationary food events. Buffets are typically open for one hour. The times are flexible, and can be tailored to your specific needs.
WHAT ARE YOUR MENU OPTIONS?
All of our menus are customizable. Please speak to one of the sales team to discuss personalizing your event.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN DESSERTS?
We allow clients to bring in professionally baked cakes for their events. All other desserts must be purchased through us. Due to insurance and health code regulations, all food and beverage must be provided by Venue 131 or from a professional food service bakery.
DO YOU HAVE A CAKE-CUTTING FEE?
If you choose to bring in your own dessert, we will present, cut and plate your cake. There is a $2 per person fee.
WHAT ARE YOUR LINENS?
Our standard linens are champagne table clothes and black napkins; these are included at no charge. Specialty linen is available with advanced order; please check with the sales office. (Special orders must be placed with the sales office at least two weeks prior to your event.)
WILL YOU ARRANGE OUR CENTERPIECES?
You can bring your own centerpieces or we are able to provide floral arrangements including centerpieces for your event and arrangements for presentation tables.
DO YOU HAVE AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT ON SITE?
We have the following audio visual equipment available for rental: Wireless microphone; USB tie in to an 80 inch flat-screen TV with stereo surround sound speakers; Ipod dock/speakers.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A DJ OR LIVE ENTERTAINMENT?
We have a list of approved vendors. The set-up of live entertainment reduces the capacity of the room. The sales office would be happy to work with you to determine the best solution for your event.
WHAT IF SOME OF MY GUESTS HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
We take all food allergies very seriously, but we need to know in advance to avoid service delays. We offer a Chef’s Vegetable Plate to guests who are vegan or vegetarian. This plate is also gluten free. We can arrange in advance another menu option that would accommodate your guests as well as satisfy other guests without dietary restrictions. We would ask for a detailed account of food allergies as well as a brief introduction of those guests and our room captain to be certain that all concerns are addressed in advance of service.
