Mingling with friends over a couple of drinks is one of the loveliest ways to relax and let go of the day and the worries that come with it. If getting together means hosting your own cocktail event, it can be quite a daunting task. However, if you plan a little ahead, it can be a lot of fun. The key to enjoying your own cocktail party is to delegate and sit back and enjoy the event as much as the guests.

Factory 51 Cocktail events  are a great way to host a party without the stress of making arrangement. These events include cocktail events, birthday parties, social functions, engagement parties and charity events.The room is blessed with rustic red brick walls, polished concrete floors, exposed steel beams, a giant crystal chandelier and a private entrance.

Start by taking a call on how you want the event to be. Casual, formal or themed. Other options will follow what you decide. Weigh the pros and cons of what you decide and inform the management well in advance. If there is a theme you would like, then decorations and layout will need to maintain the theme. Similarly the same needs to be mentioned in the invite. Keep in mind that the invites need to go out well on time, so the kind of event you want to host, needs full prior consideration and consultation with the person handling the event. A creative theme can make your party feel special without adding to your budget, and it will help you come up with ideas for food, drinks, and decorations.


Decide on the drinks and snacks you would like to serve. Some options are practically possible and some that look easy may be difficult to provide. Keep a good list ready with you, so that if a particular item cannot be served, you have an alternate to suggest to the person handling the event. Decide on the number of snacks that you want served, and also the frequency of serving. When it comes to drinks, serve the standard drinks and make sure you and the bartender are on the same page, when it comes to fixing cocktails. There are some basic cocktail mixes  that should be available if required. Food and drinks are the life of a party and make sure the ones you serve are easy to eat without being messy. Keep the occasion in  mind when you select the food.
