What do most banquet halls have in common? Perhaps a large, open area for dining and dancing, catering options, music, decent restrooms, decorations, and event staff? Many banquet halls look similar and offer similar packages, with minor differences here and there. But what if you want to host your event somewhere unique? Somewhere cozier, or with better food?
CityGate Grille is a classy place to hold any kind of event, with various event spaces available, trained event planners to help you figure out all the details, stellar serving staff, incredible menu options, and AV equipment to make sure your event goes off without a hitch. Guests who’ve hosted wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, showers, family events, and corporate parties have been highly satisfied with the end result! Let’s take a look at what makes us special.
CityGate Event Spaces
If you’re looking at booking a banquet hall, you’re likely planning a larger event, and our Terrace Room might be a great fit. Large enough for 200 guests and featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, our Terrace Room is a beautiful place for a wedding reception or other large party. This room also opens up to our awesome patio where Edison lights twinkle overhead, and a fire keeps your hands warm while you enjoy some fresh air.
If you’re planning a smaller event, our Trading Floor is a great setup. Or, you can do an event completely outside on our patio!
CityGate Event Menu Offerings
Our event menu is out of this world if we do say so ourselves. We have a wide variety of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres that you can select one-by-one or as a display. We also offer butcher block carving stations where our chefs will serve you a slice of fresh meat to go with our tantalizing sides. If you want to provide a full dinner menu, we can serve soup, salad, and an entree for just $35 per guest. Our dinner packages include coffee, tea, and soft drinks!
After dinner, we can serve delectable desserts to each guest, or provide a sweet table where people can choose what they want to sample.
For guests who have dietary restrictions or preferences, our menu is clearly marked with gluten-free options. Other dietary needs can be discussed during the event planning process!
We also have a wide variety of options when it comes to serving alcohol at your special event: we can create a signature drink for guests to try and we can do a hosted consumption bar, a beer and wine bar, or a cash bar.
For showers, we have a light lunch menu, or a salad menu and you can add on dessert if you’d like. Another unique option we offer is a breakfast buffet, complete with an omelet station if your event will be held in the morning.
Our event menu is very thorough, helping you know what your options and costs are upfront so there are no surprises when the bill comes!
CityGate AV Equipment
We know it can get tricky trying to prepare fun slideshows or playlists for your event when you aren’t sure what equipment you need, so we try to make it as easy as possible. Our event spaces are equipped with built-in screens and projectors and acoustic ceiling tiles. We also have flat screen TVs and a DVD player available, as well as a couple of microphones. Let us know what you’re planning, and we’ll help you make sure you’re all set.
When guests book an event at CityGate Grille, they’re not just getting a beautiful space or great food, they’re receiving quality hospitality from our well-trained, competent, friendly staff. We will float around the room making sure everyone’s drinks are full and stomachs are happy, while staying out of the way so everyone can enjoy the party.
