Sometimes it’s hard to know how many guests you’ll have at your event, that’s why we offer two convenient options for payment.
- Advanced ticket sales – Two weeks before your event pre-purchase your tickets. Tickets must be picked up from Niabi prior to your party and handed out to guests before entering.
- Tally your guests at the door – With a debit or credit card on file, your guests can let us know at the admission gates they’re with your group then we’ll tally up and charge you at the end of your event.
