Want some tips on how to make the booking experience more budget friendly? We recommend that you check if the restaurants offer any BYOB options, which can reduce the cost of the venue rental. If you’re a fan of home cooked meals, but prefer having someone else wash the dishes for you, then you’re going to love this option. If the situation allows it, you can opt for splitting the bill with your guests. This is a great solution if your private dining option involves a get together with friends. And if all else fails, try to negotiate the price with the manager of the venue, who knows, maybe you’ll be able to get a few dollars off your private dining event!

Guest list

Perhaps you’re throwing an intimate networking party, or an integration for your employees? Whatever the occasion may be, and whoever you plan to have at your small private dining room party, make sure that your guests RSVP, so you don’t overpay for the venue. Also, it’s good to just have a peace of mind about who’s coming, and who’s not.

Booked Entire Space at Cafe Skye
Cafe Skye helped me host a party for 26 friends. The venue went above and beyond to accommodate our preferences. The owner Cameron was extremely organized and easy to work with. The staff at the party was amazing — even the chef and kitchen crew checked in to make sure we had a nice time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to host an event.
