Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN IS THE VENUE AVAILABLE FOR EVENTS?
Z Party Upscale Events is available to book events on:
Fridays | 6-9 pm
Saturdays | 12-3 pm, 4-7 pm, 8-11 pm
Sundays | 11-2 pm, 3-6 pm
Rental times may be extended at the discretion of the Z Party booking staff with a rate of $50 for 30 extra minutes.
MAY WE ARRIVE EARLY TO SET UP OR STAY AFTER TO TAKE OUR ITEMS OUT OF THE VENUE?
No. Hosts and guests will not be permitted inside the venue until the rental time has started. Failing to arrive on time will result in the forfeiture of your security deposit. Parties that have not vacated the venue by the end of the rental time will be charged $20 for every ten extra minutes (i.e. A party that arrives late and leaves late will forfeit their security deposit + $20 for every ten minutes after their rental time). Additional time may be purchased.
HOW MANY GUESTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?
We can accommodate up to 100 guests. Our standard and premium packages are limited to 60 guests, so any additional tables and chairs must be purchased as a la carte items.
WHEN DOES MY EVENT'S BALANCE HAVE TO BE PAID?Your balance must be paid in full 2 weeks prior to your event. 50% of your remaining balance after booking is due halfway between booking and your final payment date.
IF OUR PARTY IS DONE EARLY, CAN WE LEAVE?
The host is required to remain at the venue until a Z Party team member has arrived at the agreed upon time. If there are extenuating circumstances requiring you to leave before that time, you must call the owners at 361-944-2133 or 361-816-5346 to make arrangements.
MAY WE TAKE ANY OF THE DECORATIONS THAT YOU PROVIDE?
No. All tables, chairs, and decorations provided are property of Z Party Upscale Events.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN DECORATIONS?
You may elect to bring your own centerpieces and decorations for the gift and cake tables. Please keep in mind that packages are not discounted if you bring your own decorations. Wall or ceiling decorations are prohibited.
MAY WE SERVE ALCOHOL?
Yes. Please consider that you are responsible for your guests and any actions that they take during your event.
DO YOU HAVE A FREEZER FOR STORING COLD ITEMS?
Yes, a freezer is available for your use.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD?
Yes. We encourage hosts to provide food that is mess-free so that your clean up is quick and easy. Foods such as barbecue, beans, chilis, and soups can damage the table linens. Please keep in mind that any damage to the tablecloths will be charged to the host's card on file.
DO WE DO ANY SET UP OR TEAR DOWN?
No. Z Party's packages include the set up and tear down of your party. All tables, chairs, and decorations should be left as they were found. You are required, however, to do a quick sweep of the floors, remove the trash, and remove all items that you brought in.
DO YOU OFFER CATERING OR CUSTOM DESSERTS?
No, but we are able to offer local recommendations.
DO YOU HAVE A DJ?

Foods that are acidic or greasy will likely stain our beautiful table coverings. Customers choosing to provide these types of foods will be required to pay a $150 refundable security deposit (regularly $50). Barbecue, fried foods, chili, and beans have ruined linens, and we highly suggest that you avoid these types of foods. Thank you for your understanding.
