Property Rules and Event Guidelines
Ensuring safety for all onsite attendees (vendors and guests) is of the utmost importance. The State of California has issued Industry Guidance for Private Venues & Events to support a safe clean environment for workers, clients and guests. The full Guidance can be found HERE.
We want to make our complaint events as smooth as possible for our clients and vendors alike. Below is our Property Rules and Event Guidelines.
All events are limited to 90 guests. All events are closed events and will not allow walk-ups.
