When can I view the space?

Fees apply should anything be left behind.

How do I hold a date?

A hold is not secure until an e-signed contract is returned and 50% deposit processed. In the event that another party is interested in the venue before we receive these items, we will offer you a deadline to submit the contract and deposit before releasing the hold to the other party. If the date you requested has an existing hold, we will offer the previous party a deadline and then contact you when the deadline is over.
