Frequently Asked Questions

How much does everything cost?

For 3 hour events prices start at $650 for Monday-Thursday, $1,200 for Friday-Saturday, and $800 for Sunday.

 

Additional venue fees vary on many factors including day of the week, A/V technician fees, and additional decor needs. For this reason, it’s better to speak with us directly to discuss rates customized to your individual needs. Use our Reservation Request page to confirm your dates are available and submit your request. If your event is more than 3 hours we will respond with a custom quote for your event. All sales are subject to sales tax.

What is your COVID-19 Policy?

Due to the event limitations set by the state of Florida and the size of our venue, your guest count cannot exceed 45 people. It is strongly encouraged that all attendees wear masks, but it is up to the discretion of the client.

 

If the state orders a lockdown or safer-at-home order and the venue has to cancel your event, you will receive a full refund. You will also have the option to reschedule your event with no extra cost.
