Frequently Asked Questions
I’m interested in renting your venue. What’s included in the rental fee?
Our rental fee is all-inclusive! This means that when you book with us, you not only get use of our venue space, but also:
A set of 22 tables: Four highboy cocktail tables, Four (6 ft) rectangular tables, Four (8ft) rectangular tables, Six (60 inch) round banquet tables, Two (48 inch) round banquet tables, One (32 inch) round table, One (6 ft) white dining table with five white chairs, plus 60 silver chiavari chairs.
Amenities: kitchenette/bar area with full refrigerator, sink and amble counter space, wireless internet, two bathrooms.
Linens: Your choice of black, white, or gray tablecloths. However, a $90 cleaning fee is required if you use our linens.
How many hours should I book the venue?
You can book the venue for the amount of time you need it for, including the time that you need for your own set up and breakdown. Normally two hours prior to your event to set up and one hour after the event to breakdown is sufficient.
Can we come in early to set up?
You are allowed access to the space when your time block starts, so if you know you will be needing extra time to set up, make sure you include your set up time in whatever time block you choose. When your time block begins, we will have all of your tables, chairs and tablecloths set so the room will be ready for you to begin your set up at that time.
What is the booking process for securing the venue?
We require a deposit of $475 (or $565 if you use our linens) as well as a signed contract in order to secure a date. By request, dates can be held up to seven(7) days without a down payment and contract. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to the event date. The deposit will be applied towards the final balance.
What is the venue’s capacity?
The venue’s capacity largely depends on the type of event you are hosting as well as the set-up. The venue can comfortably accommodate up to 75 people banquet style, 85 people for a cocktail reception/party (standing) and up to 60 people for a wedding. If you want everyone seated, we generally recommend no more than up to 75 people if you would like additional room for dancing/mingling. Additional chairs may have to be rented.
What are your rules for decorating?
We are a DIY venue, so please feel free to use as much (or as little) creativity as you'd like when decorating for your event (but please, no glitter!). We do ask that you use only thumbtacks, or scotch/duct/masking tape for hanging on the walls – no screws, large nails, staples, or other types of adhesive.
Do you offer event planning or day-of coordination services?
Absolutely! we would love to help your special event go off without a hitch. With our planning, we listen to your vision and assist with transferring that into reality with a budget and schedule of what needs to be done, by whom, and when. Day-of coordination is available for those who are happy to handle the planning aspect, but would like us to step in on the big day to allow you to enjoy yourself while we make sure everything goes off without a hitch. The venue owner is a certified and professional wedding planner.
Am I responsible for cleaning up after the event?
Being a DIY venue means anything you do must also be undone. We ask that you return the space to us in the same way that you received it, which makes you responsible for taking down all décor, removing all items you brought in, cleaning up any spills, and taking out your trash. If you don't want to do this, we can do it for you for an additional $275. If you select this service, you do not have to pay the $75 cleaning fee.
Who am I allowed to use for catering, bartenders, and other vendors? Do I have to use your preferred vendors list?
Though we have a preferred vendors list, you are welcome to use any vendors of your choosing - caterers and bartenders included. You are also welcome to bring your own food if you would like to go that route.
Can I bring my own alcohol?
We do allow you to bring your own alcohol, but it must be served by a licensed bartender. If you don't have one, we can provide one for an additional cost.
