What are my options for food and beverage?

No gathering is complete without something to eat and sip on! We are proudly bringing you custom food menus, so you just need to show up with your mask! Please inquire about our packages.

A 1-day permit from the City of Boston is required to serve alcohol at Love Child. This costs $75 and must be done 2 weeks prior to your event.

You are welcome to bring your own food into our space.  We ask that you please follow our "Hosting during COVID" guidelines, which includes individualized food and beverage.

Do you host trunk shows?

Absolutely!  If you aren't looking to rent out the entire space, but would still like to get your product in front of our audience you can opt for a trunk show option during our Blooms & Booze retail hours. Thursday & Friday 12-5 PM.  Please inquire for pricing.

Where can my guests park?

Have you ever tried to park in Southie? Yeah, it can be challenging, but all along West Broadway is public parking. Bonus: on the weekends, you can park in residential parking!  We are a 10-minute walk from the Broadway MBTA Red Line stop and a 1-minute walk from the 9 bus stop.
