For many, the biggest perk of living in a condominium is access to awesome amenities without ever having to step foot outside. The right amenities can be a seamless extension of living space, and savvy condo hunters have a checklist of must-have facilities alongside great suite designs, finishes, and a sought-after location.
Many of our new Empire condo owners are already taking advantage of all the great amenity spaces their building has to offer. Amenities are designed to be used to the fullest, and it’s a wonderful perk of condo living to be able to host your friends and family in your personal party space for the day.
With so many great events like the Super Bowl, Family Day long weekend and Oscars just around the corner it’s the perfect excuse to host a fabulous party with our handy guide to executing the perfect event at your condo.
ASSESS YOUR OPTIONS
Different events will have different needs. If you’re hosting friends for the Super Bowl or Oscars, the TV will be the main focus, so book the entertainment room or theater, like in Empire’s Eau Du Soleil waterfront condominium, a cozy space with a large television is what you’ll need. If you’re getting your family together for Family Day, the party room will work best, especially if there’s designated dining and lounge areas, such as in our Rain & Senses condominium.
Once you know what room you’ll need, book immediately. Particularly for specific events such as Family Day; you never know who else might be thinking along the same lines as you.
KNOW THE RULES
Know and be respectful of your building’s rules and make sure your guests understand them as well. You may need to book a security guard through your building or adhere to restrictions on the number of guests allowed, and you’ll most likely need to hand over a security deposit. Also, keep in mind the proximity of amenities to neighbouring suites, and make sure your guests are respectful of other residents as they pass through the building.
If you’re guests are driving, suggest carpooling where possible to ensure visitor parking is available for everyone, and if you’re providing alcohol or know your guests will be drinking, ensure everyone has a safe way home. Suggest the Guest Suites in your building to friends coming from far, but make sure to book early to ensure availability. And, as with any party, be prepared to host people overnight if need be.
DON’T STRESS TOO MUCH
The best part of hosting a get together in your building is you don’t have to leave home. Make sure you relax and enjoy! If you’ve forgotten anything from cutlery to paper towels, your condo is a short ways away.
