Booking Your Event

How far in advance do I have to book an event?

We recommend booking at least 4-6 weeks in advance to  allow time to secure the space, accommodate your requests  and give your guests sufficient  notice. If you are in need of a last-minute event, reach out to your account manager or utilize the chat feature in the bottom right corner and we will assist in securing a great experience.

Can I order food/beverage at my event that is not included in the package?

Additions or substitutions to the experience menus can be facilitated with the help of a Kapow rep. We strongly encourage that all upgrades be made prior to the event date so the supplier is fully prepared and your event is a success. However, if you need to increase food and drink on-site, you will be required by the venue to put your credit card down and cover any incidentals.
