How to rent a hall

Whether you’ve rented dozens of venues or this is your first, figuring out how to rent a hall can be challenging.

Types of halls 

Banquet halls don’t have to be dark and stuffy — i.e., the hotel halls you remember from back in the day (that still haven’t been renovated). Halls like this beauty in downtown Los Angeles, CA, show that you can have a bright, creative space for less cost than a typical hotel banquet hall. This one comes with plenty of A/V equipment, as well as chairs and tables for all types of events. The 3,000 square feet of space can be used for weddings, professional workshops, or product launches. Take a look at this review from a past renter who used the space for a company off-site: 

“This space is such a gem, as is [the host] Julie. My first experience with Peerspace and Julie set the bar high. From beginning to end she made herself available. She answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was very accommodating with our needs both prior to, and during our event. The space was clean and looked exactly as it did on Peerspace. There was plenty of parking and the area is very secluded and quiet. I highly recommend renting this space for your event or meeting.”

“We had a wonderful baby shower event! The space in West Town was perfect for our group of over 50 people. Light, airy, charming space and numerous amenities… Enough room for family and friends to mingle comfortably. Working with Kahrin, our main contact, was really special. Being a novice at planning something like this, her help was invaluable… The event went smoothly-no issues-but it was reassuring to know she was close by if we needed her. In the end, family and friends had a great time in a wonderful space, everyone was happy!”
