Event FAQ

Food & Beverage
We have preferred vendors that we are happy to recommend but guests are welcome to bring in the caterer and/or bar service of their choice. We encourage guests to go as simple or extravagant as they’d like. Guests can bring in their own alcohol — we do require that they a hire licensed and insured bartending service to serve (we have several recommendations in our preferred vendor list). They will also need to obtain a banquet permit online from the Washington State LCB — it is super simple and costs $10. If guests choose someone outside of our preferred list there is no charge. We ask that they let us know as they hire. We will reach out to the vendor to answer any questions they have, clarify expectations and potentially schedule a site visit to ensure the event runs as smoothly as possible
Booking
Once a guest decides they would like to move forward with booking the space we can send over a contract and proposal. All we need is the confirmed dates and time — including setup/cleanup. Guests can both sign the contract and pay the deposit online. We typically require a 50% deposit with the remainder due 30 days before the event.
Decorations
We want you to make the space yours so decorate away. Our only requests is simple — don’t do anything that leaves permanent damage or that’s super challenging to get clean (glitter, confetti, etc). As a general rule — if you wouldn’t do it to or in your home we just ask you don’t do so in ours. Otherwise, make the space your own!
Cleaning
You just finished partying so we try to make this easy. The cleaning fee covers all actual cleaning so no need to sweep, mop, wipe down counters, etc. We simply ask that guests do the following before leaving: • Take out anything you bring in (decorations, party favors, remaining food/alcohol, etc) • Sort your waste into the designated trash, recycling and compost bins provided — yay the environment! (we’ll take it out for you) • Rinse and put away any glassware or dishes you use (your bartenders will/should do this)
Parking
Friday/Saturday night in Ballard means that street parking may be challenging. If driving around the block and looking for parking doesn’t sound fun, we recommend ride-share or parking in one of the close by paid lots. The closest paid lots to the venue are at 5444 Ballard Ave NW and 2221 NW 56th Street. (see map for general parking around Cathedral)
Insurance
We require guests obtain event insurance. Simple to get online — EventHelper.com is one option — typically around $100-150 depending on the details of your event
Elevator
We believe in fitness and healthy cardio (aka…we don’t have one).
Drop-offs & Pick Ups
Drop offs and pickups must be completed during the rented time. The majority of our guests don’t need access to the space all day so we don’t charge a rate that reflects that. To keep our rates as is we only staff the space for the time our guests reserve it. Want access to the space all day for rentals and drop-offs? We got you. Opt for our all day rate and the space is yours from 9 AM - 12 AM.

Model FAQ

Do You Really Donate All Your Profit to Charity?
We do! It might sound crazy but there are actually existing organizations already doing this — Newman’s Own for example.
Choosing a Charity & How It Works
Like our preferred vendors, we have preferred charities we love to recommend and work with closely. We will send those over with additional information before your event for you to explore. If you have another charity in mind you are welcome to choose them. We are passionate about helping people engage with the things they care about but don’t feel like we need to tell you what that it. We pay our bills — rent, utilities, taxes, employees. At the end of the year, instead of profits going to investors or owners, ours profits go to the causes our guests choose to benefit.
Who Are Our Featured Charities
We update our partners regularly so this changes from time to time. Most are based here in the greater Seattle area and work in diverse range of fields
Are You Looking For Charities To Add To Your Recommended List?
Always! We love connecting with and learning about great people working with great organizations doing great work. If you have a non-profit you love — or work for one — send them our way and we will reach out to connect and learn more.
