Preferred Catering & Bar Service Partners


Thank you for considering using Pique Travel Event Space for your event! We look forward to having you at our space and offering you different options for catering and bar service to best suit your needs. In all instances, you will contract directly with these vendors and Pique does not collect a catering fee. 


We have partnered with the following companies to offer our clients a wonderful experience for their events:


Host a Toast: - Working with Host a Toast will allow you to have food from some of the best caterers in town like Kowalski’s, Chowgirls, or YOUR favorite caterer, or talk to them about creating a custom menu for your event with one of their private chef partners. When you pair that with their hosted bar service*, where you bring the alcohol and they bring everything else needed to run the bar, Host a Toast offers a one-stop, one-vendor solution for your event.


*Host a Toast bar service only available when you book full-service or staffing with them. Bar must be a fully hosted bar where no guests are charged for drinks. 


D’Amico Catering: If you have been to a wedding or event in the Twin Cities in the last 25 years, it is likely that you have experienced D’Amico Catering. Known for their high quality and impeccable service, from the **bar to desserts, they can offer your guests a premier experience. 


**When using D’Amico for a cash, hosted or combination bar, all alcoholic beverages must be provided by and purchased from these caterers. No client-provided alcohol is allowed. 


Chef Jeff Catering: A smaller, family-owned caterer, Chef Jeff has been serving the Twin Cities area since 2004. If you are looking for a delicious meal, including options for different global menus, and someone to work within your budget, Chef Jeff could be a great fit for you! Chef Jeff does not provide bar service. 


Lucky’s 13 Catering: As part of the Eclectic Culinary Concepts, Inc. family of companies, Lucky’s 13 offers a wide variety of offerings and styles for our clients. They also make it convenient to add on **bar service.


**When using Lucky’s 13 for a cash, hosted or combination bar, all alcoholic beverages must be provided by and purchased from these caterers. No client-provided alcohol is allowed. 


When you use Full-Service catering by one of these vendors, they will be the one to provide all the items you need for food service, including linen options. They are also the ones who will manage the space. Someone from Pique will be there at the start of your rental time to make sure everything is set up as you expected it to be and to answer any questions, but then catering will take over to make sure the restrooms stay clean, rules are followed, takes out the trash and locks up at the end of the event. These caterers know our space well and no outside fees or service is required when using one of them. 


Bar Service Only


If you are working with D’Amico, Chef Jeff or Lucky’s 13 for catering, you also have the option to use  Liquid Motion or Equal Parts Cocktail Company for bar service. You can work with them a few different ways: 


  • Have the bar service connect you directly to a liquor store where you pick out and purchase what you want to serve as a hosted bar. They will pick up the alcohol, bring it to Pique, get it set up and then collect it all at the end of the event. Whatever is resellable gets returned to the store and refunded back to you. No need for you or anyone in your group to manage any part of the bar! Your bar must be hosted for the entirety of your event. 

  • You purchase your own alcohol from whatever source you like and bring it to Pique within your rental time, and plan to take back anything that is left over at the end of your event. Your bar must be hosted for the entirety of your event. 


The bar service will bring all the items to manage the bar with any of these options: coolers, ice, cups, napkins, mixers, lemons, limes, etc. They also may have the option to add on real glassware and other items to complete your event. 




What do you mean by Full-Service catering? Full-service means that catering staff brings the food to the venue, stays on-site to manage and serve it, clears tables, manages trash, and leaves staff until the end of the event to help lock up the space and make sure everything is out. Full-service catering is the only kind of catering allowed at Pique. If you are looking to use a Full-Service caterer other than the ones on our list, please let us know that in your inquiry or email correspondence. 


What do you mean by a hosted or cash bar? A hosted bar means that your guests are not paying for their alcoholic drinks. A cash bar means that they are. If you are looking to have a mostly or all-hosted bar we highly recommend you consider working with Host a Toast for all of your bar and food needs, or Liquid Motion or Equal Parts for the bar, as either of those companies has options to bring your own alcohol. If you are going to have an all or mostly cash bar, you can use Lucky's 13 or D’Amico for the bar.
