Event Venue in Tulsa

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Event Venue

Choosing your venue is perhaps one of the most important aspects of planning an event. Whether you are hosting a wedding reception, a corporate event, or even a birthday party, the venue can dictate the success of your event! At Stokely Event Center, we strive to make your decision as simple as possible. 

Here are five factors to consider when you are choosing a venue for your upcoming event:

1. Event Venue Features

An event venue is so much more than an empty room. It is important to choose an event venue that offers features to impress your guests and simplify your responsibilities. Stokely Event Center offers many additional features including free arcade games for entertainment, an in-house sound system that offers audio and visual capabilities, and much more! 

Best of all, cleanup is included for every event hosted at Stokely! This allows you to truly enjoy your event without the dreaded task of hours of cleaning once your guests leave.

2. Unique Atmosphere

One of the factors that can set your event apart from the rest is the atmosphere in which you host your guests. A unique atmosphere not only sets the tone for your event but also minimizes the amount of decoration necessary. Stokely Event Venue maintains the title of Tulsa’s most unique event venue! 

With over 300 nostalgic Tulsa signs, Route 66 memorabilia, and more, your event is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.

3. Flexibility Regarding Food & Beverage

Unfortunately, many event venues restrict you to using their preferred vendors for food and beverage. This can be quite restricting in allowing you to create an event that truly communicates your style! 

While we can certainly recommend local food trucks, catering companies, and more, we allow each host to bring in their own food and beverage. We have had guests set up a portable smoker in the parking lot, hire a food truck for their event, or even host a formal 4-course dining experience!

4. Event Venue Staff

The staff of the event venue can be an invaluable resource as you are planning and hosting your event. It is important to choose an event venue staffed by a team of experienced professionals. At Stokely Event Center, we are passionate about helping our hosts create an exceptional party experience! 

5. Accessibility of Event Venue

As you are planning your upcoming event, it is important to consider your guest’s experience from start to finish. There are not many things more frustrating than attending an event that is hard to locate. Stokely Event Center is conveniently located with plenty of parking for all of your guests!

Regardless of the size of your upcoming event, planning a party can be a stressful experience. We know that choosing an event venue can seem quite daunting! Our team is always ready to answer questions regarding your event, providing you with the information you need to make your event a smashing success!
