Can we request a specific furniture layout? A: The venue is set up as a social club / lounge, but can be configured (with some limitations) to accommodate a more "boardroom" style layout, depending on which area. Q: Can we bring our own alcohol? A: Our licensing and insurance do not allow for “BYOB” and therefore this is not allowed. If you would like a bar package as part of your meeting (or at the end for a happy hour, for example), please inquire with host for pricing and availability. Q: How about food? Do you have preferred catering vendors that you work with? A: We have preferred vendors who can give you a separate quote and take care of all food-related needs. We do not handle food in-house, and we do not have a full kitchen on-site. If you work with an outside caterer not on our preferred vendors list, we charge a $250 fee. This covers time and expenses required for a new vendor, such as permit and insurance verification / paperwork, added email communication, required venue walk through, etc. If you do not hire professional catering but decide to bring in food or have it delivered, we charge a $100 fee to cover added staff clean-up time and waste disposal. Q: Is there parking included, or a garage nearby? A: There are no included parking spots with the venue, and unfortunately, The Castro does not have a parking garage. We are located right on Market Street, and there is generally street parking available within 1-2 block radius. Of course, for any guests who will be consuming alcoholic beverages, we strongly advise taking a car service or public transportation, which is readily available outside our venue. We are located less than a block from Church St. MUNI station. Q: How do vendors or personnel load-in to the venue? Is there a loading dock or designated area? A: There is no loading dock or designated loading zone, however, we do have a side gate on Market Street that goes to the lower level (Speakeasy or Outdoor Terrace). This can often be the easiest way to load in, depending on which space you have reserved. Street parking is available or you may temporarily double park on Market Street for quick drop-offs. Please coordinate specific arrival times with venue management, and be advised that all set-up time must be part of the hourly rentals. Your event contact can go over these requirements to ensure a smooth experience. Q: Do you allow guests under the age of 21? A: Our licensing does permit guests under age 21, however, they will not be served alcoholic beverages per state law. Any minors (guests under age 18) must be supervised by a parent or adult guardian at all times. Our venue is not suitable for young children, and we strongly recommend childcare services in lieu of bringing kids to the venue.

Shelly C. booked a team offsite for 7 people
We used this space for an outdoors offsite and it was perfect! It can be chilly in the morning but once the sun came out it got warm so if you're there for a full day I would suggest wearing layers. The onsite manager was super friendly and attentive, we would definitely book this space again!
