Client Responsibilities

When can I begin setting up?


Rental time begins at 3 pm. This is when you can begin decorating and when caterers, florists, DJ’s, bartenders, etc. can have access to the room. We do offer early set up depending on availability of the room, which we can discuss no earlier than two weeks prior to your event.

Your clean up duties includes taking all of your decorations and food. Trash can be taken to the dumpster behind the brick wall conveniently located in the south-east parking lot. Spills and messes need to be swept and mopped if necessary. The catering room needs to be swept and mopped as well. Chairs need to be folded and placed on tables. Your hostess will be able to direct you in clean up. All of this must be done before 10pm unless otherwise indicated on your contract.
