This coming holiday season, if you are planning a party, reunion, or any other special event that is sure to draw in a lot of people, you are bound to decide that you need to take things outside your home, school or workplace to a more specialized venue. GenSan itself has seen the convention center and dedicated events-place market skyrocket to new heights. It thus comes down to choosing the right one for your special occasion. The top considerations for these things are an appropriately classy aesthetic and affordability. Many events places in the city would offer these, but not many of them mean it.
But Maxim’s Events and Venue actually does. Under its new management, Maxim’s offers a venue with great ambiance, flexible decorative options, and a top-quality catering menu, all for a range of reasonable total package prices that other convention centers can only hope to match. With its second-floor location, the venue at Maxim’s offer increased privacy and a more pleasing view outside the windows for a more pleasingly intimate setting. And its maximum guest capacity of 150 to 170 people – depending on requested table layout – is hard to beat by others.
Of course, accommodating a large party of guests for an event means making room for vehicles too, and Maxim’s does not disappoint with its open parking space right next to the building itself, saving visitors from a long walk with easy access via a wide stairway to the second floor. Inside, you can have your desired table layout and room decoration fit for any occasion: birthday parties from young ages (Disney Princess theme) and up; to wedding receptions and family reunions, and even business conferences. You can have your guests seated at either long tables arranged end to end, or in intimate round tables; either way they will be supremely appointed with professional tabletop settings (available with the catering packages).
At Maxim’s Convention, you have a choice to rent their events space alone, or avail of their delicious catering package as well fit for over a hundred guests at most. Either way, you and your party will get the run of the place for four hours, with a choice between a lunchtime event (10AM-2PM) or dinner (6PM-10PM). The venue-only rates are among the best deals to find in GenSan: P8,500 for 50 pax, P10,500 for a hundred, and P12,500 for 150 pax or maximum capacity. You can then bring in your own food for your guests with totally no corkage, while outside catering is also welcome for a P2,500 fee.
Catering packages at Maxim’s give you even more wiggle room for your budget. The basic 50-pax with cater is only P18,500; 70 pax are good for P24,000, P30,000 covers the cost for 100 pax, and finally 150 guests will be able to eat their fill with a P40,00 catering pack. The events place also offers free lemonade, juice or iced tea, with a wide variety of add-ons such as additional viands (P5,000 every 50 pax), drink station, dessert bar, pica-pica/finger food, and more to choose from for P10,000 per extra.
Guests will not lack for any activities at Maxim’s Events thanks to its lights and sound system and projector, plus CCTV and free Wi-Fi internet. There is also a karaoke/KTV setup with microphones available for your party to sing to your hearts’ content, absolutely free of charge. You will not even have to worry much about working up a sweat thanks to the well air-conditioned venue, which also includes an entrance nook for photo-ops and where photo booths can be installed. And that is not even all Maxim’s can offer.
Saying that an events place offers its own catering is one thing. But it is providing a truly delectable catering menu that will make or break any party deal. Maxim’s boasts a top selection of viand items: Chicken (garlic or buttered, honey-garlic, deep-fried, Buffalo wings or Afritada); Pork (humba, sweet & sour, barbeque, spare ribs, tapa and menudo); beef (steak, Caldereta, white sauce, teriyaki and broccoli); and fish (fillet or breaded, with tausi, tuna kilawin, sweet & sour, and lumpia) You can choose any two viands and add a veggie/pasta item (veggie lumpia, salad, steam & grilled, chopsuey, pancit guisado, and spaghetti) and finally a dessert (buko salad/pandan, fresh fruits in cream, mango tapioca, macaroni or fruit salad). Rice and softdrinks are available according to pax number of catering package.
Finally, Maxim’s Convention is fully aware and understands if you want to keep the party going as much as you can. Subject to availability, you can request an extension beyond the basic 4 hours with an extra P1,000 fee per additional hour. Maxim’s can also spring for an acoustic band for your event (to play 3 sets subject to availability) or even a magician/clown for your child’s birthday bash. Either of these add-ons are yours for P10,000 on top of your events package of choice. Suffice to say, Maxim’s can provide you with most anything you might need to make your special occasion truly special.
