There are several factors involved. We can give a more specific answer once we determine the particular needs of your event.
The typical rental time is 2-3 hours, but we are flexible.
Your room rental covers the “day of the event.” Access can typically be gained up to two hours before your event on the day of the event. If you feel that you need to gain access the day before a fee may apply to reserve the room. This detail can be discussed at the time of booking the venue.
If the room is being used for another event the following day the items must be removed after the event. If the room is not being used we can make arrangements for you to come the following day. The venue is not responsible for any items left in the room before or after the event.
We do not encourage an extremely early delivery of cakes/special pastries to the facility due to the delicate nature of most cakes. If a cake is delivered early we cannot make provisions for the cake to be placed in a cooler due to limited space. Due to the risk of damage, venue staffing will not move a cake once it has been set in place. The venue and its staffing will not assume any responsibility for a cake/special pastries during or after delivery. The cake/special pastries is the full responsibility of the person providing the dessert and the client purchasing the cake.
The room rental fee includes the set up of your chosen area and your own private server/bartender throughout the duration of your event.
Absolutely. However, the venue will not assume responsibility for lost or damaged linens.
The Rumsey Room has a dance floor you can utilize. Our venue out back has a bar area with a concrete floor that is covered you can use for a dance floor.
