We love hosting groups in our store!
Our Candle Bar is available for walk-ins any time. If there are 5 or more people in your group, we encourage you to make a reservation with us. That way we can reserve your seats together and be sure we are properly staffed to provide you with the best candle experience possible.
We have four options for reservations. The first option is simply a reservation, where we reserve seats at our bar for you. We can even make personalized cards for your group. You will go through the candle pouring process, then you can head off to shop, eat, drink, or whatever strikes your fancy for 90 minutes while your candles set up. You also have the option to return the next day for your products.
The second option is a Mimosa Hour. This is simply a reservation scheduled before we open. This is not a private event, but you may bring in your beverage of choice! Mimosa Hour ends at 11:00 am, and requires a $125 minimum purchase.
The third option is a private party. Private parties are available Sundays at 3:30 or 6 pm, and Mondays after 5 pm. The entire space is yours for 2 1/2 hours. If you need longer, you can add on additional time for $50 per half hour. We have a $400 minimum for groups up to 20 people. This can be paid by a host or paid separately. Larger groups will incur a higher minimum.
You are welcome to bring your own food and beverages to your private party. We will run your group through the Candle Experience first, then you are free to eat, drink and be merry while the candles set up.
The fourth option is our Mini Bar, the newest addition to Wax Poetic! The Mini Bar is our newly refinished upstairs with it’s own private bar. We offer private parties or reservations. A private party can be booked during open hours at Wax Poetic. The Mini Bar accommodates up to 10 people comfortably (12 if you really like each other). There is a 2 1/2 hour time limit, and a minimum purchase of $400. Food and beverages of your choice may be brought in.
You can also make a standard reservation for 4-10 people to enjoy the Mini Bar. You may bring in a bottle of wine or beverage of your choice to share during your candle making, but your group departs after pouring. You can return later for your finished products. Minimum purchase for a reservation is $48 (two 9oz candles or other products of equal or greater value) per person for up to 75 minutes. During your reservation, there may be other groups sharing the Mini Bar with you. * The Mini Bar is stair accessible only. *
