FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the maximum capacity?
The Village Gathering Place is for events with less than 50 guests.
How does meal service/catering work?
You can bring your own food, hire one of our preferred vendors, or hire your own caterer. We provide a full size fridge/freezer for food storage and a utility sink for clean-up. Food must be prepared offsite and brought to the venue. If you are hiring a caterer for your event, we can set-up a time for them to tour the space.
What is the policy on alcohol?
Wine, champagne, and beer only are permitted; no hard liquor allowed. All alcohol must be served by one of the two preferred bartending services listed on the Vendor section of our website (additional fee required) and must be provided by the Client(s) for the bartender. Alcohol may not be served to minors. Absolutely no BYOB or cash bars allowed. Illegal substances are not allowed at any time on the premise. Drunken/Violent disturbances are prohibited and subject to immediate removal from the premise and possible termination of event with a $250 fine for any breach of contract.
What is the payment schedule and how do I pay?
The full payment is due upon booking to reserve the date. The time frame rented must include set-up and clean-up. If the event goes over the time frame rented, the client will be charged in 30 minute increments.
Upon your arrival, you will be required to fill out a credit card authorization form in case of any additional charges. For example: damages to the property, staying beyond the reserved time slot, etc. You will be notified before any charges are made.
What about decor?
Our space is tastefully decorated to be a backdrop for whatever you have planned! Leave it as is, or feel free to bring in your own decorations to make your event even more festive. Centerpieces, tableware, and serving ware is not included in a rental of the venue. We ask that any wall decorations be only attached with temporary adhesive (such as Command hooks); no tape or nails, please!
What does arrival & departure look like?
Upon your arrival, the on-call host will greet you and confirm your set-up details, clean-up details, and have you fill out the credit card authorization form (see payment info above).
At the conclusion of your event, we ask that all trash is bagged, tables & surfaces are wiped down with provided supplies, and that the chairs are stacked on the tables. We ask that you notify the on-call host of any damages prior to departure. When leaving the space, please turn off all lights and close the door behind you. We will close up after the event has concluded.
Your reservation duration includes your set-up and clean up time; please make sure your request reflects adequate time for both. Typical set-up and clean-up time is anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes additional before and after your event.
