WHAT'S YOUR VIBE?
We are a brand-new, state-of-the-art, sleek, and eco-friendly performance and art space. We can accommodate most event needs.

We require that someone from your team schedules a walkthrough prior to booking your event.

WHAT IS YOUR MAXIMUM CAPACITY?
Each event is unique and requires a different plan based on the nature of your event (ex: seated-only theater style, partial seating with “dance floor”, high-top tables, etc). When inquiring, please provide as much information about your event so that we can help determine the maximum capacity. The space is able to accommodate 97 seats in the proscenium theater setup. For an additional fee of $800, it can be cleared to fit 200 people. The lobby and gallery can hold an additional 100-125 people. Other configurations will accommodate fewer guests.
AM I ABLE TO HAVE A FULL SEATED DINNER?
We can accommodate seating in the cleared configuration, but Art House is better suited for dance parties and other festive functions. We recommend having a few communal tables and high tops, plus renting tall cocktail tables and tablecloths. Please check in with our technical manager, Kevin Rees, for approval before placing a rental order.
I'VE SCHEDULED A WALK-THROUGH, WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
Upon booking the space, you’ll receive a contract. Please note that half of the rental balance is due upon booking to secure the space.

FOOD & DRINK FAQs
WHAT TYPE OF FOOD CAN I HAVE AT MY EVENT?
Outside caterers are welcome, however we do not have a full kitchen at Art House. Our second floor has a basic kitchenette with a sink, beverage refrigerator, freezer, and microwave.

We recommend hiring food servers; most caterers can provide this additional staff. All caterers are required to formalize and confirm menu details, set up, and deliveries with our technical manager in advance of your event. Food trucks are another popular option, however we can’t guarantee parking right in front of the venue.
