All bar services are coordinated through The View. Mercantile & Mash is the exclusive catering service to the venue. We do require an event planner for all events. Please ask our Sales Managers for a list of preferred vendors.
DO YOU ACCOMMODATE CEREMONIES ONSITE?
The venue can accommodate up to 75 seats (depending on the floor plan) on the Terrace for on-site ceremonies. Rehearsals must be scheduled with the Venue Manager between 90 to 30 days prior to the event date. The time and duration of the rehearsal will be subject to other events taking place that day and may not last longer than one (1) hour.
Note: In-house chairs are not allowed outside on the Terrace for ceremonies; additional chairs must be rented through an outside vendor like Curated Events, Snyder Event Rentals, or Event Works.
Do you offer on-site event coordination or planning services?
Weddings require the use of a full-service or partial service licensed professional event/meeting planner to ensure proper care and use of The View and its facilities. The planning package must be more than a “day-of coordinator.” This planner may not be someone who is a guest at the function. Clients who fail to obtain a professional event coordinator will pay a 30% surcharge on the total event invoice (this includes coordination of rental and linen orders, drafting floor plans, etc. by The View staff unless otherwise approved).
A meeting with the Catering Services Manager is mandatory to discuss presentation, floor plans, rentals, timelines and vendors thirty (30) days prior to the event. Upon completion of the event, a walkthrough with an on-site management representative is required to assess any possible damage or excessive clean-up that may have occurred during the event.
Do you have a list of recommended vendors for other event services?
Yes, we have a list of recommended event professionals. Please ask your Sales Manager to provide.

No duct tape or any other form of tape can be used.
Do you provide audiovisual equipment and technical support?
The View has a built-in sound system and the host can provide their Sales Manager with a playlist to pipe the music through the speakers. All TV’s, projectors, speakers, microphones, and podiums need to be rented from an outside vendor. There is no AV person on-site. Clients are responsible for setting up their own presentations, etc.
