Find answers to our most asked questions below. If you don’t see your answer, please contact us. We’re more than happy to help!

Do you require specific catering or alcohol vendors?

No, we have a completely open vendor policy which means you can use whichever vendors you’d like! We do have a list of preferred vendors we can provide at time of booking if you haven’t chosen your vendors yet.

What staff do you provide?

We provide bartenders and bar backs, security (indoors and for parking), an elevator attendant, on-site event staff for table and chair set up, and janitorial services.

Do you have a floor plan or venue map?

We’re happy to provide a floor plan and venue map, including electrical access points, screen locations, and load in access points. Please contact us for more details.

Are there any limitations for decor?

Due to the historic nature of the building, we do have a few stipulations. We do not allow real flames or wall decor attached by nails, screws, adhesive, etc.

Do you have a catering kitchen?

Yes! We have a full catering kitchen with prep space, an ice maker, refrigerators, and more. If your caterer is asking for more details, we’re happy to provide pictures and layout information.

Do you offer a discount for non-profits?

Yes! Discounts will vary based on time of year, length of rental, etc. Please contact us for more details.

What is the parking situation?

Is your venue wheelchair accessible?

What is your capacity?

Capacity will vary based on the type of setup you want. We can do up to 900 people with a cocktail setup, or up to 500 seated. You’re welcome to mix and match the setup on each floor to best fit your needs.

What are your options for tables, chairs, and linens?

Tables: Cocktail, round tables (seats up to 10), and a long wooden head table.
Chairs: Walnut folding and chiavari (limited number).
Linens: Black or white.

Do you allow LGBTQ+ weddings?

Absolutely! We love all kinds of love and have hosted lots of LGBTQ+ weddings and celebrations. We’re a proud supporter of the Human Rights Campaign and ensure our staff are inclusive and welcoming to all of our guests. We also offer gender-inclusive restrooms on the first floor.

Is that a slide I see in pictures?

Unfortunately, the historic cargo chute is not a slide, and cannot be used as one. But it is very cool and adds a unique detail and conversation piece to the space!

What is your process for booking and deposits?

Deposit and payment schedules will vary based on your event, booking timeline, and financial needs. Please contact us for more details.

How does the venue coordinator help with our event?

You’ll meet with our venue coordinator twice before your event, once 6 months before and again 2 weeks before, to finalize logistics for day-of, floor plans, and vendor details. The venue coordinator is not a wedding planner, so if you are wanting a coordinator to help with fine details, we highly recommend hiring a wedding planner or day-of coordinator.
