Rental includes 60 mins setup before the event and 60 mins clean up after. Any time outside of the 60 mins will be charged an hourly rate. Please note: This does not mean that if you pay for an additional hour you still receive an additional hour before that time. A 25% security deposit is required to hold your event date and time. The remainder of the booking fee is due 30 days prior to the event. Failure to do so can result in forfeiture of desired date.
Rental area: This rental agreement is for the space you selected and only that space. No guests should congregate in areas that are blocked off, reserved by other guests or not booked.
Conduct: All renters and their guests are expected to treat our space and staff with respect. Langston Hughes CBRC owners and staff reserve the right to immediately terminate an event if they deem renters and/or their guests’ behavior rowdy, disrespectful, unsafe, and/ or inappropriate.
Example: Event is booked 8am-12pm, Renter is allowed to get in the space at 7:00am to set up and must clean up and leave by 1:00. At 1:01 renter will be charged for the full hour.
