Evenings and weekends until 11:30 pm. Enjoy downtown Kingston’s nightlife after your event – we are steps away from all of your favourite restaurants and bars.
5. How Much Does It Cost?
We can work within most budgets and can provide options at various price points for your event. Please see our pricing page for an outline of our costs.
7. How Does Food Service Work?
Fête has an on-site, open concept commercial kitchen. We work with all of Kingston’s finest chefs and caterers and can provide a variety of culinary options for your event at various price points. As we wish to ensure only the finest quality cuisine is served at Fête, all catering arrangements must be pre-approved by Fête.
8. How Does Bar Service Work?
The Fête bar offers premium wines, Prosecco, beer and a specialty cocktail as well as non-alcoholic beverages (sparkling and still water, coffee, and tea). BYOW and THTR (Bring your own Wine / Take home the Rest) program is not offered at Fête at this time.
9. Why Should You Choose Fête for Your Special Event?
Fête is the venue of choice for the discriminating customer. A premiere downtown location, exquisite surroundings, artisan-crafted furnishings, elegant decor, the finest quality tableware, glassware and linens, an on-site commercial kitchen, partnerships with Kingston’s notable chefs and caterers – all of the elements necessary to ensure that your event will be perfectly executed. Fête is not suitable for large groups. Fête is not particularly well-suited to children’s events, although arrangements can be made for on-site care-giving and crafts for small groups of children in a private room.
