We will work out a custom package deal to make sure that you have the exact experience you desire. We can do large fully catered corporate affairs or casual meet-ups. We will make sure that you get the exact beverage, space and game play options that suit your group for the best possible price. Please carefully look at our bar & token package options below.

SECTION RENTALS
Section rentals are available and pricing depends on a variety of factors including group size and day/time of the week. For larger groups we can provide custom pricing options. Some popularly requested size/time combos include:

$100/hr (3 hour minimum) – Section for up to 20 people (12 seated)
$167/hr (3 hour minimum) – Section for up to 40 people (25 seated)

TOKEN PACKAGES:

Our games only take our Emporium branded tokens.

  • Our games take between 1 and 4 tokens and a token = $.25.
  • Unlimited tokens for the duration of your 3hr event are available for $20 per head (full party participation required). This option is not recommended on busy weekend nights. We require the total to be paid in full upon arrival (or paid ahead of time). People may not give tokens to other people who did not purchase the package. If we see this happening, we reserve the right to end the token deal early with no refund.
  • Pay as you go tokens are available at a discounted rate of 25% off when at least $40 in tokens are purchased ($30 in cost to you). The discount remains in effect for the duration of the event so you can always get more if you start to run low.

NOTE: We prefer to know ahead of time how many tokens you will want so they will be ready for your group, but you can let us know the night of your party. We always recommend starting with less and adding more later. People often overestimate how many they will need. We DO NOT buy back any tokens.

DRINK PACKAGE OPTIONS (for parties of 50 people or less):

  • Cash Bar – Each person simply pays regular price for their own drinks. Easy. Peasy.

    • A maximum tab limit eg. “Do not exceed $1000 on the tab please.”
    • A maximum drink value eg. “Nothing over $10 on the tab please.”
    • Specific allowed drinks eg. “Beer and wine only on the tab please.”

 

DRINK PACKAGE OPTIONS (for parties of 50 people or more):

DRINK TICKETS – A set number of drink tickets can be purchased by a single member of the group and distributed to members of your group.

    • All drink tickets must be organized and paid for in advance. We do not buy back unused drink tickets and more tickets cannot be bought during the event.
    • Drink tickets expire at the end of the event.
