We love seeing how you spruce up the joint. Please note the following about event decor.

All decorations must be approved in advance. Reach out in advance to chat with us so we can give you the green light.

Because we are an art gallery as well as an event space, we do not allow tape on the walls.

For safety reasons, nothing can be hung from light fixtures and there can be no open flames.

If you plan to move furniture, we need to approve it and we’ll take care of it per the space rental agreement fees.


Vendors, Catering & Staffing
