We recommend not booking more than two years in advance. After that window, we say now is the time. If the date is open now there is no guarantee it will stay open. Booking season is at its highest September - February and dates go fast then.

What is the Edison Room for?
IS YOUR SPACE HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
The Edison Room is a multi-purpose room. We use it for caterers to plate the meals in. We do not have a stove, only a microwave and fridge. The room can also be used as the guys getting ready room on a wedding day. Through the week we also rent this room out for meetings and various purposes.
In short, yes! We have gone to great measure to assure our space is handicap accessible from our bathrooms to our hallway, ramps and more. With our space being a second story space in a building built in 1883, we are limited with options. We have a commercial chair lift on our stairs to help assist. We do not recommend our facility for someone who can not easily be moved into our chair lift and use a manual wheelchair in the venue.
WHAT IS THE DEPOSIT? WHEN IS IT DUE, AND IS IT REFUNDABLE?
DO I HAVE TO USE YOUR VENDORS?
Nope! We have a preferred vendors list that are only suggestions. You are free to use who you want when purchasing our venue rental. If you chose a package, those vendors come with the package.
We work with Event Source for linens, dishes, and tableware mainly but you are not required to order through them either and can rent those elsewhere.
Our non-refundable retainer is 50% of the rental fee.
DO YOU OFFER A PAYMENT PLAN?
Our rental is 50% up front and the rest of that is due mid-way. Your beverage package is $18-38 a person and due 4 weeks out.
IS THERE A DANCE FLOOR PROVIDED?
Our floor is all the same and the dance floor can be made to set up anywhere.We kept our flooring consistent so the room has flexibility and can be setup how you want. If you’d like a different dance floor you can rent one from Event Source.
We take care of all the set up when it comes to tables, chairs, linens. Your only responsibility is to bring in whatever you want to decorate and take it home with you. We take care of the rest.
