You’re welcome to create an inviting space for the public by opening the doors, purchasing catering to share, etc… but the public should not be approached or solicited anywhere inside the Commons.

The Day of Your Event: Policies & Expectations

We’ll be ready! ​The room will be clean and ready for your arrival. Your group name will be noted on the sign outside the doo​r and we will communicate locking/key instructions the day of your event. ​Please come in time to set-up your decor and the tables and chairs as you’d like them for your group. We also recommend visiting the space a few days prior to test our AV equipment if possible. (Please work with us to set-up an available time.)

Catering should be ready! ​Again, to ensure all our vendors are ready for you please pre-order food & beverage. If you plan to order onsite at the bar/counter we highly recommend contacting vendors about your group so they are ready, especially if you would like to start a master tab for your guests.

Expectations on your event time & cleaning: ​Events should not run past the contracted event time for your group so as not to interfere with other events at The Commons. All events must conclude by 9 pm in the private room. All guests and event decor/materials should be removed no later than 9:30 pm to allow for closing/locking The Commons building. Failure to adhere to this timeline will result in additional rental fees. Unless prior plans have been made with our caterers, please bus all your party’s dishware to the common area trash and dish receptacles.

Please drink responsibly. ​No one under 21 will consume alcohol at The Commons. Each vendor offering alcohol reserves the right to refuse alcohol service at any time for any reason. Retail alcohol from The Community Tap cannot be consumed in the private room or any other space of the Commons for legal and tax reasons. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in additional corkage fees and refusal of management to book future events with your group.
