Unfortunately we can not allow food trucks at our venue. We are in a residential neighborhood and we can not disturb our neighbors.

Yes! You can put down a $100 hold, and we will hold your chosen date for 7 days. If you choose to move forward with your event during or at the completion of those 7 days that $100 will count towards the total cost of your event. You may only hold a date once, and you may only have one hold per event.
11. Can we extend our rental past 11pm?
Unfortunately not. We are not allowed to make exceptions to this rule for many reasons, some of which being; Our Neighbors, Our Staff Hours, The Cleaning Crew, and the time it takes to turn the space over for the following event.
12. Can we Grill or BBQ outside?
No. Because we are a historic building, we do not allow open flame of any sort here at our venue. Sadly BBQ's and Outside Grills fall under that category.
