Let us welcome your guests to the Down Town Club like family! Our professional valet attendants will greet your friends and family curbside, ready and waiting for even those guests arriving up to one hour before your start time. When the weather cools, we provide complimentary staff-attended coat check for your guests. Once inside, they will be offered a glass of our favorited champagne and our staff will be ready to guide them through our abundant cocktail selections, including cold stations, like our famous chilled seafood display, and our popular chef-attended interactive stations. Also included in our cocktail hour and a half is over thirty different butlered hors d’oeuvres, all handcrafted and made with in-house recipes – you can’t get these anywhere else! Of course, your guests won’t be disappointed in our top-shelf open bar, craft beer, and customizable signature cocktail!
Your Event Manager and Maître D’ will welcome your guests while waiting to escort you and your bridal party to your exclusive bridal suite located a floor above your wedding venue, complete with a generous sampling of Cescaphe Event Group’s specialty appetizers and beverages, in addition to VIP Maître D’ service for the Bride and Groom and immediate family. Allow our Event Manager to bustle your gown while you relax – take your time, you have an hour and a half! Don’t stress over the details – we offer a placecard table or seating chart easel, birdcage rental, and soft background music for cocktail hour.
