Beach Parties
Central Coast Event’s premiere venue, the Monterey Beach House, is known for its Classic Californian Beach Party. We rope off the sand and create a personal waterfront party equipped with palm trees, tiki torches and cool Adirondack chairs, surrounding gigantic bonfires ready for s’mores. With a mouthwatering selection to choose from, we offer a served buffet or action stations placed throughout the beach house and along the deck for a bite of something different everywhere you go. The Monterey Beach House is dancefloor ready but our amazing sound system blasts right over the crashing waves and we party all night with our toes in the sand. Having an exciting Beach Party with Central Coast Events at the Monterey Beach House includes a permitted indoor/outdoor beach facility for a party of 30 or more. The inside of the Beach House can accommodate up to 200 seated and set-up includes Tables, Chairs, House Linens and Biodegradable/Compostable Tableware. Our indoor games include Pool, Foosball, and Ping Pong for some competitive entertainment. Beach Volleyball and/or Beach Bocce Ball are some of our favorite to have set and ready for fun!
