How far in advance can we book?
We schedule events as far as 1 year in advance. Considering we are a small space, many people often book with us in short time frames. We do recommend a three month minimum if you’re lucky.
How is parking in the area?
All parking in the area is free. We can designate a space for you to unload in front of the venue. All other guests are allowed to park anywhere along the side streets. All parking is in comfortable walking distance from the venue.
Do you have a preferred vendor list?
Unlike many other venues, we don’t have a preferred vendor list. In order to allow hosts to choose their own vendors, we opted to not have a mandatory exclusive list. With us, you are free to choose the vendors you know and love. However, we do have vendors that we work with often. Once you book, we can provide you with that list.

3rd party insurance will need to be provided by you. We recommend using a website such as www.theeventhelper.com. They provide day of event insurance that covers your event in case of any incidentals.

Do you require a deposit?
We do hold a reservation deposit, which is 20% of your overall invoice total. The deposit applies to your final payment which is due a week prior to your event date. We don’t hold a security deposit, however we do require we keep a credit card number on file.
For events that are open to the public, we do hold a $500 refundable deposit, along with a credit card on file. We consider a public event an added liability considering you do not personally know all the guests who are arriving. It’s also best to note that standing-only events are considered public events regardless of event type.
Why do you charge more for mid day events?
Due to our increased inquiry volume, we have grown to accommodate more than one event per day. Our minimum rental time is 4 hours. However, we understand that sometimes you may want to host your event midday such as 2pm-7pm. This complicates availability for other interested guests. If you need a midday rental, we charge a mandatory 8 hour booking.
