Yes! We would be happy to schedule you a tour and answer any questions. We are available by appointment Monday-Friday, 11 am-4 pm. Call or text (972) 715-3232 to book your tour.
We can seat up to 375 guests indoors with a DJ and/or band and dance floor. If a DJ/band and dance floor are not needed, we can seat up to 450 guests. If you do not need seating for each person, we can hold 600+ depending on the flow of the event.
It depends on the day of the week and your guest count. Please contact our venue manager for pricing or see our pricing brochure Here.
If the date is available and you have a proposal, we will offer a 7-day hold while details are discussed and a contract is drawn up. A hold is not secure until a signed contract is returned with the required deposit. If another party is interested in the venue before we receive these items, we will offer you a deadline to submit the contract and deposit before releasing the hold to the other party. If the date you requested has an existing hold, we will offer the previous party a deadline and then contact you when the deadline is over. Once you have booked the space, our events team will be available for additional walk-throughs for you and your vendors.
Yes, we require a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to secure your date. If you must move your event date, we can easily accommodate that if your new desired date is available. Your funds will transfer over if we can accommodate the change.
