On June 8, 2016, Muzik Event Centre opened their doors to professionals in the events, public relations and special events industry, to witness their multi-million dollar renovations. Muzik wanted to showcase their renovations to be considered for hosting weddings, corporate dinners, fundraisers, exhibitions, banquets and be more known as an event venue.

The open-concept, grand entrance to Muzik was highlighted with long, family-style tables and assorted floral arrangements. The entrance led to Muzik’s grand venue space. For this event, it was set up with a central bar under the glass dome but is also often used for a larger stage.  Behind the central bar was a small stage where exciting music was playing all evening.The inside of Muzik can hold 3000 attendees for standing events and 750 for seated events.

One of the most anticipated renovations at Muzik was the pool and patio makeover. The patio is outfitted with numerous black and white cabanas, a full-bar and three infinity pools. The outdoor patio, also known as The Beach, has room for roughly 5500 guests while the private pool and patio area can accommodate 1000 of those guests.

 

The Food Dudes, a local, full-service catering company, provided snacks and desserts for the event. Foods included: sizeable charcuterie boards (which were continually replenished), steak and asparagus, fish and coleslaw, fish tacos, eggplant and guacamole roll-ups and the crowd favourite – popcorn chilled with liquid nitrogen, chocolate and a candy table. Grey Goose was also represented at the event as bartenders were making feature cocktails.

Overall, the open-house at Muzik was a great success with over 1000 expected attendees. Attendees fully enjoyed the food, drinks and music that was provided by the event centre.  For any upscale event that requires a big venue, be sure to consider Muzik Event Centre and their recent renovations.
