People tell us they love it here.

Mixin Mingle’s Square location, attractive decor and flexible layout (complete with tables, chairs, and even slatwall hooks) has been a great place to have our third annual wine & beer tasting fundraiser. The staff is always more than helpful both in planning and executing our event.
— Maggie C. Woodstock, IL
The size and affordability met our needs perfectly. All contact with Mixin Mingle was extremely courteous and willing to help throughout the planning process. The day of the shower, Jen was there to assist us and couldn’t have more pleasant and helpful throughout the day. Everyone loved Mixin Mingle and I will definitely consider using them again should the need arise. Thank you for helping make our shower a success!
— Joy M. McHenry, IL
Mixin Mingle is a great venue to host a party of any sort. The staff is very flexible, understanding, and very easy to work with. The location is easy to get to and very affordable. Thank you for making Emma and Kenny’s baby shower so special!

I had my daughters sweet 16 party here and everyone absolutely loved it!!!! We did a all white glow party it turned out great!
— Kari D. Algonquin, IL
We were looking for a place to have our wedding reception that was smaller and more intimate so people weren’t dwarfed by the size of a room. We found Mixin Mingle completely on a whim and it was perfect! The room was airy, clean, and just the right size! And for a bonus, the view into the Woodstock Square made a perfect backdrop for our table. The price was the best around, compared to other places we looked! The staff was so friendly and accommodating, and were very easy to talk to and get a hold of. We had a great time!
— Kristina H. McHenry, IL
Great space for “mingling!” Enough room for food and gift tables and for guests to move around freely.
— Maureen K. Woodstock, IL
Loved the Woodstock location an the brightness of the room. It was clean and organized. The booking process and staff were easy to work with. I would definitely use again in the future! Thank you!
— DeAnn C. Marengo, IL
Super easy to rent out this space because the tables and chairs you need are already in the building. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There is a 50-60 inch television for your presentation or slideshow, microwave, refrigerator and a speaker to plug your music into.
— Mitch R. from Google Reviews
The Woodstock Venue blew me away when I walked in. The space was huge and there was a ton of room to run around. It had everything we needed for a party (sink, fridge, bathrooms). I’ll definitely be booking in the future.
— Destiny H. Woodstock, IL
Mixin Mingle is a great affordable location for the party of your choice! We hosted a first birthday party in the McHenry venue and it was so nice not hosting at our house! The kids and guests really enjoyed themselves and the Mixin Mingle staff on site did a great job making us feel at home the whole time!
— Courtney S. Marengo, IL
You were great to do business with! Very friendly, affordable and all of my guests loved the space! They all asked for info on how to rent the same space for birthday parties and big events. Thank you for making my party a great success!!!!
— Melisa C. McHenry, IL
We had a perfect experience with Mixin Mingle! We held our 16 year old twins Surprise Murder Mystery Party with them. The event was flawless! Super accomodating—great communication! Beautiful space—great location! Their set up AND take down service was invaluable to us. Thanks for everything, ladies!
— Joel & Krysten Z. Wonder Lake, IL
We have our annual Christmas party at Mixin Mingle. It’s convenient for all of our family members. The place is always clean and ready for us. The space is the perfect size for our family and very affordable! Melissa and Naté are always very accommodating.

The 2017 Art for the Paws fundraiser was a huge success! We had a total of 286 completed canvases up for bid and bidding got quite fierce as the evening went on. There were a total of 857 bids this year. We raised a total of $9,843 from the auction alone, $2,000 more than last year. Along with donations, frame sales and event sponsorship, we raised over $17,500.

Thank you to Nate’, Melissa and Teresa for our rehearsal dinner success. I highly recommend renting Mixin Mingle for events. Great spot for our son’s rehearsal dinner; site was clean, plenty of parking nearby, everything we hoped for! The colorful mums out in front were a delightful greeting!
— -Ruth and Emil M. Hartland, WI
Arranging and signing the contract for our event was a breeze and the packages they offer are very reasonable! We did the baby shower package that included setup and take down of all tables as well as a event day coordinator on site to help with any requests! Our coordinator was very courteous and had great setup recommendations. The convenience of having the tables and chairs set up/take down was a huge help! We needed more tables then we had anticipated for food and the gentlemen there was so nice & sweet to pull out more for us. The gentleman there for set up and take down was very helpful, it was greatly appreciated!!!! We will definitely be booking again in the near future!
— Kelley D. McHenry, IL
Mixin Mingle is such a wonderful place to hold an event! I couldn’t believe how easy it was throwing a party with them and not to mention affordable, I never thought I’d be able to afford having the party somewhere other than my house. They were so kind and hospitable from day 1 and checked in with me a few times leading up to the event! My husband’s surprise 30th birthday party was such a success thanks to them! Never will I host a party at my own house again! Thank you Mixin Mingle!
— Rebekah O. McHenry, IL
Naté and her staff are wonderful to work with in planning events and gatherings, and their venues are the perfect canvas to make your vision a reality! YOU CAN DO IT at Mixin Mingle!
— Erica B. with McHenry County Living Cary, IL
Our vow renewal was held here 2 weeks ago. Everything turned out perfect! We are coming up with excuses to celebrate just to make plans to book again. Awesome job ladies!
— Jeri R. McHenry, IL
We had a Bridal Shower in McHenry for 40-50 people and it was plenty of space for everyone and three food, two drink, one cake and three gift tables. The linen tablecloths looked very nice too. Thanks to Teresa from Mixin Mingle who helped with decorating and help setting up. All my friends are talking about what a nice venue it was. Thank you for everything.
— Terry M. Spring Grove, IL
I looked around at different venues and Mixin Mingle was by far the best priced. They were so helpful and attentive in helping me with the details. It’s such a cute and good sized place.

— Megan N. Lake Geneva, IL
For the second year in a row, Mixin Mingle was the perfect place to hold our Wine and Beer Tasting fundraiser. The Square location makes it easy to advertise and for people to find. We appreciate having tables, chairs, free wifi and other amenities included in the price so that we did not have to rent these separately. Nate’ and Melissa are great to work with. Come to our third tasting fundraiser at Mixin Mingle next August!
— Maggie C. with St. Vincent de Paul Society. Woodstock, IL

— Deb R. Union, IL
I hosted my birthday party there with family and friends for about 60 total people. It was a lot of fun and we would rent the space again.
The check-in staff was very helpful and nice. And the staff member who stayed throughout the whole party was just as great. Everything they said would be available to us was and easy to access. My guests really liked the place. Thanks for making 50 a piece of cake!
— Cathy P. Woodstock, IL

— Donna G. McHenry, IL
We had 40 people attend our baby shower event and the main room was the perfect size to accommodate us. We used 7 round tables for seating, set up 2 long tables in front of the window for the gifts, 2 long tables for food, and one for a sweets table and beverages. I felt close enough to lend just the right feel without it feeling crowded. The attendant was perfect and helpful. Everything was done on schedule and it was a very memorable event. THANKS!!!
— Pat W. Woodstock, IL

Great space, location, & price. Naté was wonderful to work with. Will def. have my next event here!
— Michelle G. Marengo, IL
The historic Square is home to the spacious room, dubbed Mixin Mingle by its owner, Naté Grindeland. The airy space waits patiently for the next business meeting, mixer or social event to crowd its halls and bring people together. Its nondescript walls and open floor plan lend themselves to whatever event should happen to come through its doors.
— Olivia Morrissey, McHenry County Magazine
This venue for my Casino theme surprise 50th for my husband was so perfect! Naté is wonderful and so helpful I will most definitely use Mixin Mingle over and over. I hired a person from her staff to help me with my party throughout the night, and she did a great job! Actually, she didn’t just help, she did everything for me and I was able to thoroughly have fun at my party, which I can NEVER do because I’m busy keeping up with the continuous clean-up, etc. so thank you! You guys are wonderful and my guests loved your place!
— Cathy H. Crystal Lake, IL
Oh my gosh everything went AWESOME!!! So many people complimented the decor and everyone loved the venue too!! I’m so happy I came across Mixin Mingle while hunting for the perfect spot for our daughter’s special day! I can’t thank you all enough for your help and guidance along the way. I’ll definitely use the space in the future and recommend it to friends and family.
— Katie D. Algonquin, IL
Amazing, versatile space that’s affordable and conveniently located at the Woodstock square. Naté (the owner) is very pleasant to work with - she is very friendly and does anything she can to ensure you’re taken care of. Mixin Mingle is the ideal location for anything from a small group gathering to a party venue! Love MM!!! Tell your friends :)

Mixin Mingle is an event venue available for rent for classes, workshops, markets, dance parties, weddings, birthday parties, and more. I have used Mixin Mingle for several events, both public and private. The location is superb (right on the historic Woodstock square), the venue is beautiful (two large rooms, bathrooms, kitchenette, and two smaller rooms, tons of options) and the pricing is affordable and appropriate. The owner is friendly and very easy to work with. I recommend for public events and private parties. Check out the calendar, there are always interesting classes available.
— Krystle M. Richmond, IL
The recent Art for the Paws reception and event was a great success! Over 150 people came out to the art reception at Mixin Mingle to view and enjoy the 16’ by 4’ foot mosaic of original art from local artists in McHenry County and surrounding areas. We are extremely pleased to announce that this inaugural event raised over $9,500 for our programs and services. Thank you for letting us use the facility and for your incredible support.
— Helping Paws Woodstock, IL
Every time I stop by there’s something new and different happening at this place. I’ve never taken a class but I love the HoneyCraft Market <3 and went to a birthday party there. We could bring in our own food.. which kept cost down and Naté, the owner, suggested this amazing balloon artist .. he made a palm tree hat and life size octopus.. AMAZING
— Amy F. Chicago, IL

We had a great baby shower at Mixin Mingle in Woodstock. It worked out so well with all the area and we had toddlers there so the play room and room with mirrors was awesome. Again thanks and also a GREAT KUDDOS to the helper on duty - she was awesome. I will be passing around this to anybody who is looking for a spot for a party.
— Margaret J. Woodstock, IL
You now have a loyal follower! Guaranteed, I will be bringing all sorts of ecological shenanigans to your place every other year!!! (as long as you’ll still have me) :-D
— Nicky O. Crystal Lake, IL
Mixin Mingle is an awesome concept for an event venue! I searched everywhere for a venue to have my “post-destination wedding reception” and found it to be difficult to come across a venue that was : AFFORDABLE, flexible, looked nice, accommodated my party, allowed the ability to bring in my own food, drinks/alcohol, decor, etc. and had the basics I needed for my party (tables, chairs, kitchenette). SO glad I was recommended to check out Mixin Mingle! Naté the owner was super friendly and hospitable. She met me the same day I contacted her (they are very available and easy to reach via facebook or email or text or call) and showed me the venue for MCHENRY. She answered all my questions and was very responsive to my texts following the viewing before booking. Booking the venue and payment was very easy and all done online with a form she sends via email and complete it online. After booking, she continued to answer all texts with questions I had, which I appreciated! The night of the event, Teresa, was the attendant at venue for us and she was incredibly nice and friendly and helpful! I thank God for her being there because she assisted us so much with set up as I had brought a lot of decor (table and napkin linen, centerpieces, lighting, speakers and audio equipment, projector and screen, tons of drinks and food, etc) and even with 8 of us (my family and my husband and I) we wouldn’t have finished set up in time without Teresa and her kindness. Thank you Teresa! She is a GEM! And throughout the night, she checked on us and was very helpful. At the end of the night, we all helped each other to clean up and take down everything. The McHenry venue was perfect for our occasion and our guests loved it! Would definitely recommend booking this venue if you are looking for an AFFORDABLE, ACCOMMODATING, the sky’s the limit kind of venue with a great owner and helpful staff. Location is great too in downtown McHenry off the Riverwalk. There is a pizza/bar, salon, and cake/cupcake next door to the venue which is perfect for various needs as well. Book this venue for sure! 10/10 rating A+++
