Q: What are your rates to book the space for an event or meeting?
A: Our rates fluctuate depending on day of week, but for weekday evening events pricing starts at $1,000. Weekend rates start at $1,500 for just the day. For meetings, our rates start at $150/hour (with a minimum of 3 hours) or $900 for the full day.
Q: Can I pop in today to see the spaces?
A: No, but you can schedule a tour. Tours are by appointment only and are based on availability as we do not interrupt other bookings for tours. Please email us at to inquire about setting up a time for a tour.
Q: Can I come early to set up for my event?
A: Please account for setup and breakdown time when you book the hours you’ll need the space. You will be given access to the space 5 minutes before your rental starts to complete the check-in process, and our team will be back for checkout at the time your rental ends.
Q: Is clean-up included in my rental?
A: The space must be cleaned up and returned to the condition of check-in at the time your rental ends. Alternatively, we offer a clean-up add-on to your rental for a fee of $250.
Q: Can I add extra time to my rental once I’m onsite?
A: Absolutely, as long as there is no booking after yours, it is possible to add time the day of. Please note that any time added after your event has started will be charged at $150 an hour for The Annex or $300 an hour for both The Annex and The Garden. If you decide to add time, please text or call us so we can confirm availability.
Q: Do you have a caterer or can I hire my own?
A: We have preferred caterers that are pretty spectacular; we’d be happy to introduce you. However, you’re welcome to hire your own as long as they have the proper insurance. Please note that our prep facility is small and not fully stocked for cooking, so your caterer must bring their own equipment.
Q: Are there any beverage restrictions?
A: You are welcome to bring alcohol for private consumption during your event. Commercial serving of alcohol is not allowed.
Q: Do I need insurance?
A: Yes, we require a COI (certificate of insurance) for all bookings. You can secure the proper COI here or use your preferred insurance provider.
Q: Do you require a damages deposit?
A: Yes, all bookings require a refundable damage deposit.
Q: Can I bring my own decorations?
A: Absolutely! You’re welcome to decorate the space for your event as long as your decorations don’t damage any surfaces nor leave any residue. We can provide you with a list of acceptable (and prohibited) décor items.
Q: Can I have rental furniture delivered for my event?
A: Sure, but please coordinate drop off and pick up with your event manager.
Q: Do you have additional décor items available?
A: We have a number of “extras” available to rent including furniture, rugs, pillows and more. Please inquire when you book the space.
Q: Do you have projectors, easels, and flip charts that I can use?
A: Yes, we have a high-definition projector and screen installed in The Annex; everything else is in limited quantities, so please request what you need when you book.
Q: Where do I park?
A: There is a dedicated lot behind The Annex. There is also free, on-street parking available on Lyndale Avenue, Aldrich Avenue, and 28th Street. We recommend reading signs carefully, as some sections – although free – have time restrictions.
Q: How far in advance do I need to book the space?
A: We suggest booking 30 days prior to your desired date(s).
