Thanks for your interest in Dark Horse VIP Loft-the coolest, cheapest private space this side of the Kalamazoo River!

VIP Loft has its own dedicated draft system with six beers on tap, including rare or special beers when available. Other features include:
VIP Loft is available 7 days a week and operates under our normal taproom hours of operation; currently 11am-11pm Monday through Thursday, 11am-12midnight Friday & Saturday and Noon-10pm Sunday

Other than your initial deposit charge of $1.00 (see below), all monies are due at the end of the event.
In Dark Horse VIP Loft, we try to take as much of the guesswork out of your experience as possible, leaving you to relax and enjoy your event, whether a work function, a birthday party or whatever else you may be celebrating. As a function of this attitude, we offer pre-built menu services for your group based on years of experience with appetites of all types. You simply select whatever type(s) of food you want from the following options and we construct your menu based on guest count.
Food options are:
Once the menu is built, we email it to you with to-the-penny food cost, along with a copy of our menu for editing purposes. Of course, you may build your own menu entirely, though we have a pretty good handle on it after hundreds of events; and, again, why not leave the details up to us?
**We offer limited gluten or lactose free options if necessary, and generally include meat-free options on our pre-built menus unless instructed otherwise.
In Dark Horse VIP Loft, you have a few options to choose from when considering how you want the bar to operate.
**Other than your initial deposit charge of $1.00 (see below), all monies are due at the end of the event with no prepayment necessary.
Reservations for VIP must be made with a Credit Card either in person or over the phone-no emails for security reasons. When you make your reservation, your card will be charged $1.00 to make sure it is a valid card, after which it will simply be kept on file with your reservation to cover cancellation or lost glass fees, as described below.
Cancellation fee schedule:
Unfortunately, the logo pint glasses we use in VIP tend to sprout legs during events, a cost we cannot abide. Therefore, a glass inventory is done before and after each event, with any missing glasses being charged $5.00 each on the held credit card. You WILL NOT be charged for glasses broken during normal business operation, just the ones your guests, umm, borrow without asking.
Being located in our production facility, we ask that you and your guests follow these guidelines for parking when attending a function in VIP Loft:
