If you’re on the hunt for a statement-making venue…
Where customized setups come out to play and innovation runs wild…
And you want to treat your guests to something extra special that’ll have them saying:
for years to come…
THE place for think-outside-the-boring trendsetters to hold (and attend) unforgettable events in Woodstock, IL.
Rave-worthy private parties. Cozy classes and workshops. Attention-grabbing pop-up marketplaces. Bore-proof meetings. Roof-raising musical performances. Standout wedding receptions that’ll look like you went all out (without your budget going all out). Our best feature? We’re told it’s our cozy living room feel and huge storefront windows which let natural light flood in (and make it impossible for curious bypassers to resist a sneak peek).
A lot of venues slap on the “unique” label, but we’ve got the walk to back up our talk. True story: Mixin Mingle was founded on May 5, 2011, Cinco de Mayo, so consider your event blessed by the official party gods. We’ve also got a claim to fame, being burrowed in the city square where Groundhog Day and parts of Planes, Trains & Automobiles were filmed. (Psst. We hear the forecast for your upcoming soiree is breezy and bright.)
Because we’re smack dab in the heart of Woodstock’s historic downtown district, we’ve got character coming out the wazoo. Picture brick-lined streets, lineups of one-of-a-kind boutiques, quaint cafes, a restaurant dunked in French flavors, an award-winning farmer’s market, curated art and entertainment on every corner, and painters experimenting with color palettes in the park. With this kind of backdrop, not only will you create an affair to remember, but everyone will remember you for being the one who hosted it.
I’m Naté Grindeland (pronounced Nat-ay), and I think that variety is the spice of venues, family and community is where it’s at, and a healthy dollop of creativity can help you do a whole lot with just a little. I’m also lovingly obsessed with cappuccinos, graphic design, entrepreneurs, and all-things-nostalgic. Count on me to give your distinct style the space it needs to frolic and to support you in throwing a talked-about event that’ll give Gatsby a run for his money.
More possibilities than a Fruit Roll-Up: birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, baptisms, communions, family get-togethers, dances, mixers, reunions, retirements, celebrations, graduations, receptions, farewells, weddings, civil unions, holiday dinners...a breakfast club. (Hey, that could be cool.)
What we've got you covered for:
105 guests with table and chairs and 213 open space standing. Or, approximately 52 zebras if you’re throwing a Jumanji-themed birthday party. (For the record: Please don’t actually show up with zebras.)
Think you’ll be needing an extra pair of hands (or three)? We’re happy to help the day of your occasion and can provide setup, staffing and cleanup assistance for a small add-on fee.
We’re also handicap accessible and family-friendly with a separate playroom for the kiddos to hang out. (So the adults get to play for once too—uninterrupted.)
Go wild: arts and crafts shows, vendor fairs, open houses, indoor festivals, special events, food shows, parties, classes, lessons, demos, seminars, workshops, forums, coaching, presentations, performances, networking mixers, meetings...circuses. (Ok, maybe not that wild.)
Location, location, location:
You heard it right, we offer a ground level, highly visible storefront with floor to ceiling windows in the heart of downtown Woodstock, IL (a place none other than Bill Murray, Steve Martin and John Candy romped for a bit, to name a few).
Buzz-building and marketing support:
Complimentary online advertising and social media promotion, an opportunity to snatch media attention, and window signage leading up to your big reveal. Let us prop you up so you can get your deserved props.
Since 2011, Mixin Mingle has been home to hundreds of parties, events, meetings, classes, etc. Just look at what happens when you breathe life into an empty room!
