Questions?

My wife and I used Rochester's event space in March of 2020 for our wedding. It was the perfect size for what we needed and had plenty of room for set up and had no problem with outside food catering. Their staff was excellent, responsive, and flexible with working with us on our big day. The beverages (tea, coffee, and beers) were all top notch and we would highly recommend their event space and services if you are considering it.

Questions

Can we get in earlier to set up?

Can we do the drink minimum during our event but pay just the room rental fee for set up and tear down time?

Can we bring our own alcohol?

What products are included in the drink minimum?

Do you have liquor?

DO YOU HAVE WINE? 

CAN WE BRING IN FOOD?

What happens if the city mandates A SHUTDOWN OR OTHER REGULATIONS THAT AFFECT OUR EVENT?

Your set up & tear down must be included in hours rented. So if you need two hours to set up and one hour to tear down, you'll need to add three hours to your rental.

Absolutely. You're very wise friend.

Yes, but with some additional requirements and restrictions. Bringing in any outside alcohol requires written approval (such as an email) from Rochester prior to the day of the event. If you are bringing in outside alcohol, you must go the drink minimum route. If you plan on having hard liquor at your event, you will need to hire a third party bartender to serve it. Outside beer or wine must be kept behind the bar and handled and served by Rochester staff or be served by a third party bartender.

The whole Rochester drink menu from beer to tea to coffee. Go to town.

We are not licensed to sell liquor. You'd need to hire a third party bartender to manage and serve liquor during your event if you choose to have it.

We do not sell wine, but we typically have cider options. You are welcome to bring in wine if you go the drink minimum route and notify us in advance. We would just have to keep it behind the bar and our staff will serve it for you.

Of course! Outside food can be brought in, catered, or delivered. We require that if a caterer is going to be serving your guest in our facility that they be licensed and insured.

We are working empathetically with our clients to find a good solution that works for both parties. Remaining flexible is key. We will work with you to find another date that is open on our calendar.  We will be sending a contract Addendum to all our current bookings so we can all be on the same page as well.

Still have questions?

Can we get our money back if we don't spend all our drink minimum? Or switch to the hourly rate?

What is the mask policy?

The difference between the drink minimum amount and your actual tab during the event cannot be refunded. Additionally, the remainder can not be applied towards merchandise, to-go products, gift cards, etc. Also, we cannot switch the rate type during or after your event. We are happy to help you determine which route makes the most sense for you. The drink minimum route is the best deal if you anticipate your group ordering a decent amount of drinks, but it can be a gamble if you don't have a to ton of drinking buddies.

Per current city regulations we are allowed full capacity in our event space and half capacity in our taproom/cafe space. When you are in the private event space it is up to you to enforce if your guests wear masks. We require everyone entering the building, exiting the private event space into the front taproom/cafe or back restroom area and approaching a staff member to wear a mask. When sitting and eating/drinking at tables masks are not required. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone not following these rules.

Do you have a list of preferred vendors?

We do. We are happy to provide our recommendations if needed.

What products are included in the drink minimum?

The whole Rochester drink menu from beer to tea to coffee. Go to town.

IF WE DON'T SPEND ALL OUR DRINK MINIMUM CAN CONTINUE TO CHARGE PRODUCTS TO IT AFTER THE EVENT HAS ENDED?

Only products ordered by you or your guests during the time of your event will apply towards the drink minimum. Any products purchased before or after the event will need to be purchased separately. Additionally, products cannot be purchased for other Rochester customers not attending your event and be applied towards the minimum.

We host a lot of fun events throughout the year for the holidays or just because. Come join us. Sign up for your favorites below. We can't wait to see you there.
