Private Dining/Banquets - Policies


Final confirmation of the guaranteed number of guests attending your event is required by noon three business days prior to the event. You will be charged for the guaranteed number of guests or actual number of guests, whichever is greater.


We require a deposit of $500.00 to hold the Hemingway Room, $250.00 to hold the Wine Room, and $1000.00 for the Malecon. All deposits are deducted from your final bill at the conclusion of your event. All deposits are non-refundable and non-negotiable unless pre-arranged with the Event Planner.

Additional Charges

All applicable state & local taxes and a service charge of 20% will be added to the final bill. A room set-up fee & bartender fee will be added to the final bill depending on the space rented.


Should the event cancel, and we are able to resell the date/space, the deposit amount can be used toward a future private event within one year of the date of the canceled event. If the canceled date/space is not resold, all deposits will be forfeited.

Alcohol Policies

Only guests 21 years and above will be served alcoholic beverages at Miramar with proper identification. We also adhere to all state and local policies regarding the responsible dispensing of alcohol. Miramar reserves the right to suspend beverage service to any guest at any time.


Valet parking is available at a rate of $50.00 per event plus $5.00 per car after 4:30 p.m. daily. The parking can be sponsored by the host or left to the discretion of the guests. Any additional attendants may be procured at the expense of the host for $50 per attendant in addition to the valet rate.

Custom Amenities

We will be glad to arrange any additional amenities you desire including: floral arrangements, table linens, entertainment, photography, customized menu cards, audio visual aids, etc. at an additional charge.

  • Miramar does not allow any outside food or beverage.
  • Miramar reserves the right to change banquet room assignments due to party size and room availability.
