Food & Beverage
We have preferred vendors 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 hire a 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 our preferred list, there is no charge. We just require 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.
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 90 days before the event.
We want you to make the space yours so decorate away. Our only request 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!
You just finished partying, so we try to make this easy. The cleaning fee covers all actual cleaning, so there is 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! (your caterer will take it out for you)
• Rinse and put away any glassware or dishes you use (your bartenders will/should do this)
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. Parkopedia is a super handy online tool that will tell you closest places to park and their rates — including street parking.
We require guests to obtain event insurance. Simple to get online — EventHelper.com is one option — typically around $100-150 depending on the details of your event
Unfortunately, there is no elevator in our building.
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. In other words, we don’t have someone hanging around just for funsies on a random Saturday morning.
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.
