Music You are welcome to hire a DJ or musician(s) for your event. Amps are fine, but the music can’t be too loud. We can discuss this further during your tour. Live music must finish by 10pm. ---------------- WHAT WE PROVIDE We provide the space itself. Any furniture, decorations, plates, cutlery, rentals, etc. are your responsibility. ACCEPTING RENTALS All rentals must be delivered the day of your event, and someone from your team needs to be there to accept the order. No rentals can be stored at our location over-night (sorry, we just don’t have the space). SECURITY DEPOSIT We require a security deposit of $500 in the form of a check. The renter or on-site representative is responsible for any damage caused by any individual associated with the event. Any damage to our space and/or equipment will be documented, and the costs of repair will be deducted from the security deposit and/or billed to you. The security deposit will be held for five days (72 hours) after the event; at that time, any charges will be deducted. Otherwise, the full deposit will be returned. HOURLY RENTAL FEES Our rates include setup and breakdown time. Fees are assessed from the moment you enter the space, to the time when the venue is completely clean. Below are fees for exceeding your contracted time: * Space rental: $500/hr * Bar: 25% of your total contracted bar fee/hr COOKING EQUIPMENT Your rental gives you access to our full commercial kitchen.

MUSIC Music allowed between 6pm and 10pm. DECORATIONS You’re welcome to decorate the space in your unique style. We just ask that you clean everything up when you leave. Please check with the event manager, or email us in advance of the event to confirm that your decorations will be suitable in our space. Because tape on our walls will often peel off paint when re-moved, there is a $500 fine if we see any residue or damage from decorations. One thing we don’t allow is glitter: it’s impossible to clean up! CLEANLINESS Since this is a working kitchen, we want to leave the space ready for people the day after your event. We ask that you leave the space as you found it, with all floors swept, all surfaces wiped clean, all equipment cleaned, fryers emptied of oil, and trash emptied. A $500 cleaning fee will be charged if the space is dirty or any decorations are left over. THE EVENT MANAGER The event manager will help you get acquainted with the space, answer questions, and assist in emergencies. He/ she will open and close the space, respond to inquiries during the event either in person or by phone, and perform a final walk-through with you at the end of the event. The event manager is not responsible for assisting with setup and breakdown, or with cleaning after your event. PROOF OF INSURANCE Prior to using our space, you need to provide a copy of your certificate of liability insurance, naming host as an additional insured party, with a minimum aggregate limit of $2 million and an occurrence limit of $1 million. Most insurers can easily add us as an insured party for a minimal fee. Clients should coordinate with their caterers/event managers (Renters), as they are required to carry that level of insurance and can arrange to add us to their coverage. This applies to booking through Peerspace. FINAL WALKTHROUGH Please contact the event manager 30 minutes before the end of your event to schedule a final walkthrough.

We used this space for our wedding reception and I have to say it was a phenomenal experience. Iso and Matthew were very helpful with the space, helped us bring in vendors, and met with us several times so we could take looks at the space. The Kitchen was a fantastic place to serve food for our guests, and the lot was large enough for a big dance floor and plenty of room. Also, the lights and surroundings required no decoration on our part. I could definitely see doing another event here.

Iso was great and gracious! We loved the space. We used it for a mixer event for 100 teachers. Would use it again! Patio is great for the summer/fall.
