BLACK PEARL PRIVATE EVENT FAQs
What type of events can Black Pearl accommodate?
We can accommodate any type of occasion (i.e. social gathering, corporate meeting, celebration, etc.) Our event room capacity is 45 people, but we do have the option of renting out the whole establishment if you have a larger group.
What is the cost of hosting a private event?
We base our prices on a total food and beverage minimum spend. This will range based on day of the week, time of year, number of guests, etc. Please visit blackpearlannarbor.com/private-events and email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a date and get more information!
Does Black Pearl have a UofM Pcard menu?
We are very familiar with university/Pcard pricing and can always accommodate food and beverage based on the standard budget. We also have AdvaMed and PharMa compliant pricing.
Is there a limited menu required for an event?
We typically make a customized menu with up to 6 entrée options. Most events include 4 courses (appetizers, soup/salad, entrees, dessert). We also have the option of doing a buffet.
Are you able to rent linen or centerpieces for my event?
Yes. Anything you would like, we would be more than happy to order for you. If you would prefer to order your own and bring them in, that is fine too!
Do you have audiovisual equipment and a microphone?
Yes. We have full audiovisual equipment that is compatible with Apple and PC devices. We have an 80” TV screen with surround sound and the room is soundproof. We can provide a microphone if you would like, but typically they are not needed due to the layout of the room.
What is the square footage of the event room?
Our event room is approximately 800 sq. ft. including the bar area, with 600 sq. ft. available for guest usage.
Does the event room have a bar?
Yes. Our food and beverage minimum on weekends includes the bar and a private bartender (along with event servers). We are more than happy to open the bar for your weekday event at the same cost of our standard weekend minimum.
