Private Event Planning
If you are interested to hold a private event at Berkley Coffee, please start a conversation with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have 2 different spaces that could be reserved:
The East Room, depicted below, has a reservation rate of $100/hr with a non-refundable 50% deposit. It can hold up to 46 legally. With the day-to-day tables & chairs and "living room" area that we have setup in there, up to 28 could be seated comfortably. We are open to discussing rearrangement of furniture.
There is no technology in the East Room. It's quiet. There is door access control available at the door to the Main Room, and South East exterior door, which we are happy to lock during your event if you wish. We would give you key cards to let people in/out as you wish.
The East Room has a garage door which can be opened, weather-allowing, between the City-ordained April to November timeframe.
The Main Room, depicted below, has a reservation rate of $400/hr with a non-refundable 50% deposit. It can hold up to 71 legally with tables & chairs, or 160 in a standing room configuration.
If you rent the Main Room, then you inherently get to use the East Room as well, because we can't keep JUST the East Room open to the public. The public need access to bathrooms and the bar!
The main room has a stage and well-equipped audiovisual system. More detail is available on those systems HERE. If you wish to use any of this equipment (for instance to have a presentation or Zoom meeting, or to record the event, or to have a musical performance), please discuss your needs with us in advance. We will do our best to oblige at no additional cost. If we determine that your use case requires us to have additional staff to accomplish, then we will need to charge additional fees.
Regarding Food/Drink Available During Events:
We will generally staff our bar as usual during private events in either space, so the regular menu will be available.
If you want us to setup anything special for your room (like airpots of coffee or whatever), we are happy to discuss feasibility. We may even be able to get special orders from our regular suppliers if desired.
We are open to private events bringing in outside food or catering, but with a few ground rules:
-Commercially produced foods only (so no home-made cakes, etc.)
-No alcohol. This is not negotiable. We are an intentionally Non-Alcoholic space.
-Please respect our offerings by not bringing in food/drink that directly competes with our house menu. Our menu is on our website if you want to review. If there is any question whether something you are planning conflicts with this, please discuss.
