Booking fee (secure your time/date) is 1/3rd of the total rental fee. Please notify us of any changes in reservations at least 48 hours before booking time.
Booking time must include set-up and break down time within the time of your booking. The booking time starts running when the first person enters the Loft.
Moving or rearranging furniture is the responsibility of your team. Our space can be customized, but comes as is, therefore has to be rearranged as well after all bookings.
If you need a professional team to set-up or break-down for your event, we can pre-order it for you for a flat-rate of $450 for 2hrs. The team will only be present for either setup or breakdown. (The venue has to be booked during set-up and break-down.)
Notify us about all delivery and pick-up times before the event, so we can make sure someone is on-site. We allow a 2-3 hour delivery window for no charge for most events, if requested in advance.
(You can request a delivery window at least 48 hours prior to booking time for an additional fee.)
Overtime will be billed in hour increments at a rate $435/hr, unless it is requested prior to the event.
Do not use glitter, confetti, fire sparklers, or filled balloons. No paint, chalk, or other traditional media are allowed to be used on walls or flooring. No smoking allowed in the space. No drinking outside of the space.
No music past 11:00 PM. For events we allow candles if they are safe and pre-approved by manager. We do not allow music to be played very loud.
All furniture, decor, and equipment brought in the space must have felt floor coverings on their feet/bottom to protect our white treated floors.
Since our walls have special textures/treatments, no nails, screws, command strips, tape, glue, tacks, etc. can be used on the walls. Please respect the property.
We can stretch up to 85 for some events.
There is no grace period. Setup and cleanup time is a part of the rental hours.

We do not provide tablecloths and our dinnerware is not sufficient for larger events. You might need to order these from caterers or other suppliers.
If you are planning a special event anywhere other than a private place, or an establishment with a liquor license and wish to serve alcohol you will need to apply for and obtain a Special Occasion Permit (SOP). Private Event SOPs are for occasional events for invited guests only, such as a birthday party or wedding. You can obtain one here: https://sla.ny.gov/permits-available-online
If you intend to bring your own alcohol (beer, wine, or cider), I will require an alcohol permit which will be processed through the NY government website. It’s about $36 and takes about 2-4 weeks to process (I can tell you more about it in later steps). If you are going to choose one of our caterers/bartender to serve food and alcohol, they can provide me with the necessary permit/copy of their liquor license instead.
Yes, you can have someone by the stairs for check in (this is normal, and required for all events or events with a large guest list)
We charge $300.00 for early deliveries and $600 for overnight storage.
Yes, there is a passenger elevator and freight elevator. Freight elevator is open from 8:00AM – 4:00PM, let us know in advance what time deliveries will arrive.
We charge $300.00 for early deliveries (deliveries that come more than an hour before the event, without prior notice). We must be informed in advance of all deliveries and they must be scheduled from 8:00AM – 4:00PM.
