People say we're affordable. (Who are we to argue?)
Before we get to numbers, let’s talk about how Mixin Mingle will help you save moola.
Here's just a handful of ways we do our part to keep your budget in shape:
- You get to bring in your favorite food and beverages: A lot of venues force you to use in-house caterers or purchase expensive bar packages (you’re already racking up the dollar signs in your head, aren't you?), but we give you freedom to decide for yourself.
- We have all the furniture you'll need right here: With our wide array of round, rectangle & cocktail tables and chairs on-site, you can save hundreds of dollars compared to places where you have to rent them.
- We let you use our technology at no additional charge: We've got a 55” HDTV for presentations or slideshows, DVD player, and iPod Amplifier with microphone. Think of all the savings you’ll get because you won’t be charged to use them.
- We will feature your event: Public event-holders will get a dedicated event page on our website and invitations sent to fans via our e-newsletter and social media pages.
We make it easy to book the rooms based on what you need. You can book the room by the hour, or based on the event type. We also offer set-up, tear-down and clean-up services, as well as table linen rental because hey, we're helpful like that. Check out all the options:
Hourly Event Space Rental Rates
Just the Space Hourly Rates
If you only want exclusive use of our space and amenities, you’ll hang on to some extra cash by handling all the setup, tear-down and cleanup details yourself. We'll still throw in a helpful event attendant to haul tables and chairs to and from the storage room, keep the washrooms neat and tidy, and take out the party evidence (aka trash).
Hassle-Free Hourly Rates
Don’t feel guilty because you prefer not to turn into a hot mess just before your party--shoulder the heavy lifting on to us instead! Our hassle-free hourly rates include exclusive use of our space and amenities, set-up, tear-down and clean-up, so you can focus on the fun things (like setting up the cute little mimosa bar).
