What is your refund policy?
Full refunds are available up to two months before your event. Refund policy is up to the venue's discretion after that.
What type of events do you throw here?
Almost anything! The space is highly customizable. Study groups for crowds of ten people would fit in our Diner, supper clubs using our full kitchen can fit, immersive theatre shows can build into the walls and floor, and all sort of parties and shoots will fit. Weddings are also great here as we can fit a ceremony and reception. Just tell us what you are planning.
How many people can I have at my event?
The maximum occupancy changes depend on the space(s) you rent. The Diner seats around 35 max, the Main Gallery can seat around 230 with a stage area, and the Project Room can seat around 16o with a stage area. The standing room is up to you and how packed you want your event to feel.
Yes, with the proper permits that we can facilitate with the city. Private and corporate events (that are actually private) can often times host a bar legally without too much permitting. If you have questions about permitting you can pay us to manage or consult for you.
