Alaska Coastal Catering, LLC - Serving South Central Alaska         907.230.6184
Venues



The following alphabetically lists venues available in
South Central Alaska where you may bring in your own caterer. 
All phone numbers are '907' unless otherwise noted:
 
 
Tip ~ Think outside the box.  Rent a vacant estate home  and make it your custom venue.  Check with your local Realtor for a listing of large homes that may be available on your event date.  You may need to provide liability insurance and a professional cleaning service or cleaning deposit.
 
Another suggestion - rent a vacant business building for a large venue.  Vacant car dealerships make an excellent large venue!  Again - check with your local Realtor for availability and restrictions.
 
Cannot find a venue that you love?  Try tenting a site you love with one of Over The Top Tents (907-694-9200)  20' tall clear tents with sides!  Winter?  No problem.  Add heaters. 
 
The below venues list their capacity.  Please keep in mind, this most likely is 'standing' capacity, not seated.  You will need room for buffet tables, dance floor, DJ or band, etc.  You also need to allow 2 hours prior to your event for the catering staff, DJ / Band to set up, and one hour after your event for take down.
