A: The room rental cost of your party allows use of the room for 3 hours. Not automatically included in the 3 hours are a guaranteed 30 minutes prior and 30 minutes following for setup and breakdown of your event. Immediately following the 30 minutes allowed for breakdown, the next party host is allowed to enter the room to begin their decorating or the restaurant staff is allowed to start seating general guests. These time restraints are firm.

A: Yes! Please do! However, we do have a few limitations:

  • No confetti, glitter or small cutout paper of any kind. A $200 clean up fee
    will be added to your bill if you scatter confetti of ANY type on ANY surface.

    windows, decorations, or tables. If items are adhered to any surface, a $300 repair fee will be added to the final bill to cover damage to surfaces.
