I am interested in a very cool venue that says it has room for 200 seated or 300 cocktail. I am looking at about 150 people. Looking at the photos of the venue (I have not had a chance to walk through it) it seems like a very tight squeeze. I want room for round tables and hopefully an area to dance. If a venue says it seats 200 and I seat 150, could the remaining area be enough for dancing? Any thoughts? I am a very new planner so help is appreciated. 🙂

If you have to, you could always pull tables before dancing starts. Not ideal, but it’s one option. Some of the gallery photos show seating arrangements- that should help you figure out the space.

Yes, you seem to be correct. I’d go check out the space, and ask about it with the contact person there, just to be sure.
Our venue, for example, offers 150 seated, but they recommended not going over 130.

In another thread, I saw a bride suggest a request to visit the venue during a wedding setup, just to see how the space looks. I suppose you check it out and leave before the event starts. She said that helped her determine that a place was too cramped.

I think it should be fine. Space for 50 people at tables is probably enough to fit a dance floor. I would just ask them though.
