  • What’s included in the cost of rental?
    Our main goal is to make the booking and planning process as simple as possible. Beyond offering in-house food and beverage catering, we include tables and chairs, table linens, glassware, compostable plateware and utensils, votives with candles, and seasonally rotating dried floral arrangements. Ceramic plateware, proper silver, and linen napkins can be added to your rental for an additional fee.
  • What is the curfew for the event space?
    The event space is open from 8am through 9pm Sunday through Thursday, and until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Can I use outside caterers?
    We are lucky to have an incredible catering and bakery team right in our own building! As such, we do not allow outside caterers for food or beverage.
  • Do you have parking?
    We share a parking lot with our adjoining retail shops. Smaller events are welcome to utilize the perimeter spots of that lot, while larger events (groups of 40 or more) are asked to take advantage of the residential parking nearby. Your Event Manager will provide a parking map prior to your event, and we are also happy to coordinate valet on your behalf.
  • Do you have any sort of AV set up?
    Our event space is equipped with two wall-mounted and two rolling TV screens with HDMI or screenshare capability; one hand-held and two lapel microphones; Bluetooth hook up sound system; and video conferencing capability.
  • Are you family/kid friendly?
    Family has always been at the core of the France 44 businesses! Kiddos are more than welcome in our space for private events, though certain public classes and pop-ups may be designated as 21+ depending on the context.
  • Are you pet friendly?
    As much as we wish we could welcome all of your furry friends in our space, it goes against food safety and health regulations. We politely ask that you leave your pets at home (but we’ll always welcome a picture to show what we’remissing out on!)
  • Can you accommodate food allergies and aversions?
    We’re always happy to work with folks on dietary restrictions as much as we are able. Please inform your Event Manager of any applicable allergies or aversions during the booking process.
  • Are you handicap accessible?
    Our event space is handicap accessible via elevator. One of our lovely team members would be happy to guide you or your guest(s) up to the space upon arrival for your event.
  • What happens if we rent the patio space and it rains?
    We’ll never have two events going on at the same time, so rest assured that in the event of rainy weather, we’ll have the classroom space available to the group as a back-up plan.
  • Do I get Club 44 points when I book an event?
    Our Club 44 points are reserved for in-store purchases in our retail shops, and unfortunately do not apply to private event bookings.
  • Can I use my Club 44 points to book an event?
    While we do not accept Club 44 points as a form of payment for private bookings, we do extend a 3% discount to Club 44 members organizing an event with us.
  • Do you serve hot food?
    We have a variety of food options available on our in-house catering menu, including some wonderful hot food items! To see a full menu, please inquire via our intake form or with your event manager.
