Private Party Venue Features:

Food and Beverage Options

Unlike other birthday party or special event venues, you are able to bring your own food, or have food catered by a caterer or local restaurant of your choice. However, you may not bring your own alcohol due to liquor licensing requirements. You can order drinks from the in-house bar when they open at 4pm.

We can also arrange catering through John J. Jeffries, located onsite at Lancaster Arts Hotel. We can also provide snack and beverage stations for an additional fee.

Audio/Visual Equipment

Need audio/visual equipment? We can provide AV equipment including screen / LCD projector at no additional charge.

Decorations for Your Special Event

Depending on your event theme, you may wish to decorate the space or rearrange the seating. We think you’ll find our private party room is flexible enough to host a variety of events from elegant cocktail parties to birthday parties for children. While we encourage you to make the space your own, we don’t allow decorations affixed to the walls in order to preserve the art displayed throughout the room.
