PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM TO TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR EVENT, SO THAT WE CAN RESPOND TO YOU WITH THE APPROPRIATE INFORMATION
WHAT IS THE CAPACITY OF THE SPACE?
For a sit-down dinner the capacity of ARCA is 100 – 120 people. For a stand-up canapé, buffet, or cocktail event we can accommodate up to 300 people.
The back bar can accommodate up to 150 people. We do not offer sit-down dinners in the bar, only standing events with bar snacks.
WHAT KIND OF FOOD DO YOU SERVE AT ARCA?
The cuisine at Arca is a unique style of modern farm-to-table Mexican cuisine using local and seasonal ingredients. Our menu changes frequently according to the season and availability of produce.
ARE THERE OPTIONS FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS?
Yes, we can certainly cater any of our food packages to be suitable for vegetarians vegans, and pescatarians. If you have any dietary requirements at all please just let us know.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS? CAN TARPS BE USED TO COVER THE SPACE?
If your event is 50 people or less, we have enough covered space from the rain in our dining room and bar. If your event is larger than 50 – 60 and there is a strong chance of rain, we strongly suggest having your event planner work with us to organize tarps beforehand. We do have some small tarps, but if larger ones are required they will have to be rented.
CAN WE USE THE SPACE DURING THE DAY, FOR A BRUNCH OR LUNCH EVENT?
We currently only offer the space for events in the evening, from 6pm – 12am.
WHAT KIND OF SOUND SYSTEM DO YOU HAVE AT ARCA? IS IT SUFFICIENT TO USE WITH A DJ?
Our house sound-system is not suitable for use with a DJ, only if you are using an ipod.
To have a DJ, it is necessary to hire an external sound system and the appropriate equipment.
CAN I RENT ARCA WITHOUT THE BACK BAR?
The rental fee of ARCA includes the back bar, so if you are hiring the restaurant, you will automatically have use of the bar space as well. It is not possible to rent ARCA without also renting the back bar, although the back bar can be rented exclusively from the restaurant.
DO YOU OFFER CANAPÉS?
Yes. If you require canapés in addition to our sit-down dinner menus, or canapés alone, please contact us for more information and a package can be made to suit your needs. In the back bar, our snacks are a little larger in size than regular canapés.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ARRANGE A TASTING OF THE MENU?
Because our menu is seasonal and changes frequently, it is not possible to do a tasting of the actual dishes you will have for your event until 4 weeks before your event date. Please ask us for more details if you wish to arrange a tasting for a confirmed event.
CAN I BRING MY OWN FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS AND OTHER TYPES OF DECORATIONS?
Yes. You may arrange to bring your own decoration including your own serviettes and tableware if required. The only thing we do not allow is the use of confetti.
CAN MY EVENT GO LATER THAN 12 AM?
We can extend until 2am but extra fees will be charged. Please contact us for more information.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I HAVE TO RESERVE MY DATE? WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
You can reserve your event date with us up to 18 months in advance. First, please check with us to see if your desired date is available. Once you have chosen your food and beverage packages and confirmed all of the details, we will send you a contract to sign. At the time of signing, we ask for a 50% deposit to confirm the event.
