When you work with Cocoon, you are honoring those values.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book a space with Cocoon?
Contact us and tell us about your event. A member of our customer experience team will assess your needs to ensure we are able to make your vision a reality.
If you decide to move forward, the event manager with whom you spoke will visit the space with you in person and take further notes on your ideas, and will begin organizing decor, catering, other vendors as needed (such as djs, live music, a/v tech, etc.), logistics, and insurance. For the day of the event, you will be assigned at least one Casa Manager (depending on the size of the event) who will be onsite with you to ensure everything runs smoothly and to help coordinate deliveries, guest arrivals, and anything else you may need.
Do you offer event planning services?
Yes! One of the biggest advantages of going with us is you are spared the hassles of searching for caterers, florists, mixologists. We have an extensive list of event vendors and we present you with options.
It is important to note that we believe strongly in supporting our vendor communities to create a diverse business ecosystem in NYC. This means that we do not accept payments from vendors to be listed with us, we do not add a markup of our own to their quotes, and we are constantly seeking to include new and talented vendors in our network.
What types of events can I host in these spaces?
- Private events: Birthday parties, baby showers, family reunions, engagement parties, chef dinners, cocktail parties, Super Bowl parties, leaving town farewell parties, retirement parties.
- Corporate events: Hackathons, design sprints, multi-day team building retreats, happy hours, company holiday parties, product launches, product showrooms, board of directors meetings.
What happens after we choose to work with Cocoon?
When you choose to work with us, you will be assigned a dedicated event manager to handle your event planning needs. First, we will listen to your idea and event size and present you with an array of space options that fit your needs.
With that foundation in place, we consult with you step-by-step as we build your special occasion. We bring all the options to you—your life will not come to a standstill during this process, we work hard to make sure you experience all of the joy of hosting an event, none of the hassles.
What are my payment options?
Credit card, wire transfer, direct deposit, and Paypal.
What are some of the services you help with?
We secure florists, catering, bartending, photographers, party tents, videographers, after-party bar reservations, car services, hair and makeup, nearby hotels, music, cakes and bakeries, photo booth rentals, performers, lighting equipment, furniture rentals, balloons, and decor. Nearly anything you can think of, we can provide.
Do I need insurance to use your spaces?
Yes. We can help you with this. For weddings, we partner with a few insurance providers and our management team can work with you to get an insurance quote that meets your budget and needs.
Will you be there on the day of the event?
Yes, and ready to handle everything that comes up! You are assigned a Casa Manager who will be there before the event to make sure everything is set up properly; during the event, to make sure everything runs smoothly; and afterward to oversee proper breakdown and clean-up. You are liberated to focus on your guests and special occasion.
