Cocktail Hour

Historically people would host "cocktail hours", also known as "happy hours", at a speakeasy, cocktail lounge, or social before eating at restaurants where alcohol could not be served – that is not the problem with The Dining Studio. The term ‘happy hour’ also suggests a scheduled period of entertainment – this too is flexible here at Create. 

Happy Hour(s) can be a welcome reception, or social gathering prior to dinner service, allowing for staggered guest arrival. Happy hours can be informal events all on their own to gather or introduce coworkers, friends or family. Whats your idea of hosting a happy hour? Commonly happy hours are serviced with passed apps or Hors d' oeuvres for guests to enjoy alongside their cocktail, wine or beer. Create offers both a Happy Hour Menu and Hors d'Oeuvre Menu to choose from. Create's classic Hors d'Oeuvre menu options for events can be adjusted based on total guest count, happy hour theme, dietary restrictions and menu favorites. Choose several and we will help advise on quantity based on anticipated guest count. The tailored Happy Hour "pick list" style menu options for events with 12-24 guests. Choose a few, or multiples of several. Dietary considerations are listed along each menu option.
