We have a zero-tolerance policy on underage drinking -- guests under 21 are welcome, but will not be allowed to participate in alcohol-related activities.
Client is responsible for signing an event agreement after booking with ThisOpenSpace, agreeing to all of the below rules as well as any others pertaining those the particular packages being offered and utilized.
CATERING -- Heating devices and open flames of any kind are strictly prohibited within Venue's first-floor indoor production facilities. This includes torches, microwaves, sternos, hot plates, fryers, lighters and toaster ovens. Any on-site cooking must be done outside the Venue, either on the sidewalk or in our parking lot area via kitchen build. All cooking done on the sidewalk is at the vendor's own risk. Our private lot constitutes private property. Warming Trays are available for a security deposit of $150. Client may contact Venue if they/their catering company wish to use them in the case of needing to heat food inside the distillery. No other heating devices will be allowed inside the distillery for safety reasons.
*The use of any open flames on the first floor, especially the distillery production floor, is an EXTREME DANGER due to our alcohol production facility's operational nature and storage. Even in a safe environment, with no equipment running, the use of open flames or heating devices in that area poses a threat to the well-being and safety of everyone in the building. We have a list of approved caterers who are familiar with our restrictions and limitations. Caterers not on the list may be required to attend a site walk-through prior to the event. It is the responsibility of the Client to inform any outside caterers of this fact. Venue is not responsible for any complications, logistical issues or extra fees incurred by Client due to a vendor's inability to use certain heating devices. Please contact Venue for any catering questions or to schedule a walkthrough with a caterer that is new to Venue premises.
PROHIBITED MATERIALS CLAUSE -- Please Read Carefully: Outside liquor, non-service animals, firearms, candles, sparklers, fireworks, glitter, confetti, wedding rice, smoke-, snow- and fog-machines are strictly prohibited. Outside beer and wine is permissible with the purchase of certain bar packages from Venue, but not without written consent of venue manager. Indoor smoking or use of a vaporizer is strictly prohibited. In addition to the aforementioned items, balloons are not allowed on the Distillery Production Floor space. Venue reserves right to remove offending guests or, in extreme cases, end Event upon first violation of the Prohibited Materials clause. Use of any prohibited materials will enact a $250 surcharge billed to Client in order to make up for damage, extra cleaning, or lost revenue from the violating materials.
TICKETING & PRIVACY -- Client agrees that their Event is not open to the public, and therefore will not sell any tickets to the public. Private businesses and organizations may sell tickets within their membership or group, but these tickets may not be publicly accessible. Said organizations or businesses must be private entities, meaning members of the public cannot “join” the entity with relative ease -- e.g. joining a company = being hired, or joining an alumni association requires prior education at a specific institution -- these would be private entities.. Otherwise, selling tickets to any event held at Venue that is serving alcohol more than six (6) quarter-oz. pours of spirits per person per day is a violation of California State Law and will result in the immediate cancellation of the event and forfeiture of any deposit.
RENTAL ITEMS -- Rental items may be stored in the Venue's first floor loading bay up to 24 hours prior to the Event start time, and may be picked up from Venue up to 24 hours after the Event end time. These appointments must be scheduled in advance. Items will be stored in our loading bay area. Total rental item space may not exceed 8’x8’x4’ (HxWxD).
Venue staff are not responsible for the movement, loading, unloading or set-up of any rental items coordinated by Client. Venue is only responsible for arranging furniture owned in accordance with Client needs. Any and all rental items used for an Event are the sole responsibility of Client. Client assumes responsibility for ensuring all rental items are placed in loading bay or taken outside of the building within rental hours listed above.
OUTSIDE VENDORS -- Client is responsible for the exit of all vendors within allotted rental hours listed above. Overtime caused by vendor exit taking longer than the listed hours and grace period will be billed to client at the rate of $350 per hour.
TIME SPENT IN THE SPACE AND OVERTIME -- This is a full-time working distillery, active office and popular event space. Therefore, it cannot accommodate the use of the space outside of Client's rented hours, except for pre-schedule site visits and tastings. Rental charges will accrue from initial entry to building until all guests have left and all furniture, equipment, vendor items and personal items have been removed (or moved to loading bay area with consent of Venue Manager). These rental parameters include any vendors contracted by Client, including but not limited to: caterers, musicians, AV technicians, DJs, etc. If a Client's hired vendors need to be in the space, this will be included in Client's hourly rate. Overtime will be charged at a rate of $350 per hour and will be charged if Event exceeds 15 minutes past the agreed-upon end-time above. Additional hours may be purchased on Event Date for $300 per hour per space, if available, and requested before the end of the event. These are not guaranteed to be available, and are at the sole discretion of the on-site venue representative.
