Rentals

Occasionally we rent SPACE for nonprofit networking events, corporate parties, or for other private events. We do NOT generally rent SPACE for booking of public events — i.e., you can’t pay to have your band play here, run your own film festival, or finally produce that play you’ve been working on for a few years.

For those public events that resemble the rest of our arts+ideas programming, we will determine whether your program fits our mission, vision and interests, and we may choose to work with you as a presenting partner rather than forming a rental relationship. For public event partnership inquiries, please read our booking guidelines here.

A note on our facilities and capacity:

  • For standing room only, our capacity is 300 people in our main room
  • For audience seating oriented towards the stage, our capacity is 130
  • For seats at tables (as if for dining or working), our capacity is around 50
  • We have our own PA system, projector, screen, and use our own staff for tech work.
  • We comply with all laws regarding the provision and sale of alcohol, and all procurements and sales happen through our bar system. We do not split bar sales with our renters or partners.

For inquiries, please fill out the form below.

Is it open to the public or is it a private event? *
Our pricing is, in part, determined by your intention to generate revenue through your event.
(Sometimes we're able to juggle things on our calendar to accommodate new plans)
What do you need for your event? *
Capacity: Seated (up to 120ppl) / Standing (up to 300 ppl)
We require the use of one of SPACE's sound engineers when presenting live music, and the fee will reflect this cost.
I have checked SPACE's event listings to see if there is something else already scheduled for the day I'm looking for *
I have read the rental information about SPACE's mission and rental policies *
I'm inquiring about a private event or an event that looks different from SPACE's regular mission programming. *
For program inquiries related to our mission, please submit an event proposal through our booking process.
The SPACE staff may be able to help you with your event in a planning or consultant capacity.
