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 storefront windows which let natural light flood in (and make it impossible for curious by-passers 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. Our Woodstock, IL location also 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 and McHenry's historic downtown, we’ve got character coming out the wazoo. In Woodstock, picture brick-lined streets, lineups of one-of-a-kind boutiques, quaint cafés, an award-winning farmer’s market, curated art and entertainment on every corner, and painters experimenting with color palettes in the park. In McHenry, stroll the Riverwalk in the heart of the Fox River. 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.
We believe 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. Count on us 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:
Table seating for roughly 150 guests in McHenry, IL and 100 guests in Woodstock, IL. Or, approximately 52 zebras if you’re throwing a Jumanji-themed birthday party. (For the record: Please don’t actually show up with zebras.)
Go wild: arts and crafts shows, vendor fairs, open houses, indoor festivals, special events, food shows, wine/beer tastings, 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 ground level, highly visible storefronts in the heart of downtown Woodstock, IL (a town that actors Bill Murray, Steve Martin and John Candy have rubbed shoulders in, to name a few) and McHenry, IL near the Riverwalk.
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.
We know that planning an event can have you falling face-first into your bed at night. But high five, you’ve made it this far!
Now, let us make locking down the perfect venue an icing-layered cakewalk, so you can focus on the most important part: Looking forward to your event.
You’ll fall in love with Mixin Mingle after seeing our photo gallery, and you'll decide that you can’t throw your event without us. (What can we say? This room knows how to turn on the charm.)
You’ll double-check our calendar to make sure your desired date, time and location is wide open, and you'll review our pricing to see all the extra moola you'll have to spend on other fun surprises for your shindig.
You’ll fill out our quick online application. (Frothy drink and 80s music optional, but highly recommended.) Or, you can give us a call at 1-815-308-5170, and we can walk through your plans together.
We’ll be in touch to set-up a time to show you the room and blow through the simple paperwork faster than you can say: “Party time, excellent!” We’ll take care of your reservation deposit, and will also require a refundable security and cleaning deposit for private parties just in case you decide to go all rockstar on us and break everything.
Take this room and flip it. You'll decide how you want to layout and decorate Mixin Mingle for your event. We’ll talk you through setup and teardown plans, and give you a helpful list of things to bring. (Still manage to forget something? Don’t worry! We’ve got an emergency supply on site to cover those easy mind-slips, like scissors.)
If you’re planning a public event, let the buzz-building begin. We’ll feature you on our website, to our fans on e-mail and social media channels, and you can even put a flyer in our front window. With this kind of marketing support? You’ll be sharing mini kobe beef burgers with the A-listers in no time.
Email and phone support to handle those questions that pop up. We’ve done this 100,000x before (rough estimate), so we’ve got a take-charge attitude and hands-on approach that’ll help keep your event on track to be a smashing success. With us, there’s no wham-bam-rent-me-ma’am approach. If you’ve got questions leading up to your big shindig (like how to play a slideshow on the TV), we’re here to help.
Time for the main event! Ta-da! Please stand by for guest gushing.
