Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Come See The Space?

Yes! We would be happy to schedule you a tour and answer any questions. We are available by appointment Monday-Friday, 11 am-4 pm. Call or text 945-536-0886 to book your tour.

What Is The Venue Capacity?

We can seat up to 375 guests indoors with a DJ and/or band and dance floor. If a DJ/band and dance floor are not needed, we can seat up to 450 guests. If you do not need seating for each person, we can hold 600+ depending on the flow of the event.

How Much Does It Cost To Rent Each Space?

It depends on the day of the week and your guest count. Please contact our venue manager for pricing or see our pricing brochure Here.

How Do I Hold A Date?

If the date is available and you have a proposal, we will offer a 7-day hold while details are discussed and a contract is drawn up. A hold is not secure until a signed contract is returned with the required deposit. If another party is interested in the venue before we receive these items, we will offer you a deadline to submit the contract and deposit before releasing the hold to the other party. If the date you requested has an existing hold, we will offer the previous party a deadline and then contact you when the deadline is over. Once you have booked the space, our events team will be available for additional walk-throughs for you and your vendors.

Do You Require A Security Deposit?

Yes, we require a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to secure your date. If you must move your event date, we can easily accommodate that if your new desired date is available. Your funds will transfer over if we can accommodate the change.

What Forms Of Payment Do You Take? 

We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. We make it super easy to make payments online with a client portal.

How Long Do I Have Access To The Venue On The Day Of My Event?

We have a room rental minium of 6 hours and our longest rental period is 15 hours. How long you have access to the venue is based on how many hours you decide to rent the space for.

When Can We Start Setting Up For Our Event?

Your setup time starts at the time of your contracted rental time.

Can I Drop Off Items The Day Before?

It is unlikely, but you can discuss this with our Venue Manager after booking. Since we have limited storage, you will not be able to store items at the venue. However, if there is not an event booked the day prior to your event, we may be able to accommodate you. Venue Forty|50 is not responsible for items left unattended.

Does My Event Have To End At A Certain Time? 

Yes, all events must conclude by midnight, with the breakdown from 12 am-1 am.

When Do I Need To Have Everything Out Of The Space & What Is Required For Cleanup?

All rentals, personal items, and anything else brought in for your event must be removed from the space at the end of your contracted rental time. You have one hour after your event end time for cleanup. If you exceed the contracted rental time, a minium of $250 per hour fee will be charged to the card on file.

Can Two Events Happen Simultaneously On My Event Day?

No, we will never book two events on the same day. You have exclusive rights to the venue during your event even if you are only doing a partial rental (The Reserve only or The Rustic only)

Can I Access The Venue For Rehearsal Prior To The Event?

A one-hour rehearsal is coordinated with Venue Forty|50’s event schedule and is subject to availability.

What Are The Options For Getting Ready In The Space Prior To My Event?

We have a couple of options. We renovated our Rustic restroom to combine the 3rd and 4th stalls to make one large changing area complete with a full-length mirror, bench, and rug. The Chandelier room can be transformed into a bridal suite for an additional cost. The package comes with vanity mirrors, full-length mirrors, and beautiful sofas + chairs. Please check with the venue manager for pricing.

Who Provides Linens, Glassware, Etc?

We do! We provide black or white floor-length linens for all food and beverage tables. If you would like to rent black or white linen for your guest tables, we can provide those starting at $18 per linen to help complete your event vision. Our in-house caterer, Macklin’s Catering Co., provides all china, flatware, napkins (any color), and glassware with your menu selection.

Can I Use My Own Caterer?

Our in-house caterer, Macklins Catering Co., is phenomenal and can prepare all types of cuisines; however, we do allow outside caterers for cultural reasons. The fee for an outside caterer is $12 per person. The fee covers chafers, sternos, china, flatware, glassware, and colored linen napkin.

Can I Have A Food Truck? 

Yes, food trucks are very fun in our space. Food trucks can set up either in the front or side of our venue.

Can I Provide My Own Alcohol?

Yes! We do require a one-time event insurance policy. Alcohol may only be brought in by the host of the event and must be served by one of our TABC-licensed and bonded bartenders. We realize not everyone over 21 drinks, so we charge by the drinker:

The cost to BYO:
Beer + Wine: $6.00/drinker
Beer + Wine + Liquor: $9.00/drinker

Venue to provide: Tea | Water | Sodas | Mixers | Fruit garnishes | Ice | Beverage Napkins | Glassware

Do I Have To Provide Day Of Insurance For My Event? 

Yes, if alcohol is served at the event, a one-time event insurance policy must be purchased when bringing in alcohol. This can be done easily through www.wedsafe.com (weddings) or www.privateeventinsurance.com (for all other events). This policy must be issued in the User’s name and must name Mackbeth Corporation and Milrose Restaurant Group, LLC as the additional insured. This policy provides coverage for both the client and the Venue in the case of any alcohol-related lawsuits. This policy MUST be returned to the venue manager within 14 days of your event.

Will There Be Security At My Event?

If alcohol is served, then yes! Venue Forty|50 hires and passes along the cost of an off-duty police officer to monitor events. Officer rates start at $60 per hour and require a 4-hour minimum. We are required to have at least two officers at the event regardless of headcount. 

Can I Use An Event/Wedding Planner?

Yes! We prefer the use of an event/wedding planner or organizer as it will allow for a more successful event because they are experienced and well-equipped for most situations. You will be assigned an experienced Venue|Forty50 Coordinator to work with your planner on all final details of your event.

What Is The Responsibility Of The Venue|Forty 50 Coordinators?

The Venue Forty|50 Coordinator will work directly with you and your planner to make sure your vision is executed flawlessly the day/night of your event. They are responsible for all things venue-related (set up of tables, chairs, bars, food stations, etc.) as well as managing all of our staff. The Venue|Forty50 Coordinator will be present during your event to make sure everything is running smoothly and you enjoy your night!

What Is The Lighting Like? 

We have beautiful Edison bulb chandeliers, track lighting, and overhead lighting. All Chandelier lighting can be dimmed. We also offer complimentary uplighting that can change colors to best complement your event.

Are Candles Allowed?

Yes, however, all candles must be contained in votives, and the flame must be 2” below the top of the container. Open flames are not allowed anywhere in the building.

Are There Decorating Restrictions? 

Yes, you may only affix objects to the walls with painter's tape or command strips. If you are hanging items from the Grey Wall or chandeliers, we suggest using fish wire. We do allow draping and rigging from the ceiling and our chandeliers when done by a professional company. We do not allow the use of glitter, confetti, stickers, or silly string. Rose petals, rice, bird seed, and/or sparklers may only be used outside the facility and must be cleaned up after the event.

Do You Have A Surround Sound System? 

Yes, we have newly installed a surround sound system which works well for background music for an event, speeches and presentations with short videos. It is not ideal for music provided by DJ's and for auctioneer use. 

Can I Have A Live Band?

Yes. We have six 20-amp dedicated outlets for bands on our band stage.

Do You Have an Elevated Stage?

Yes! We have two elevated stages — one in the Reserve and the other between the Rustic and Reserve. We can close off the curtains for a large stage in the center of the room.

Cigars only are allowed to be smoked on the Patio. Cigarette smoking is not allowed inside the venue or on the Patio but is allowed outside on the south side of the building in the parking lot.

What Is The Parking Situation, and Is There Valet?

We have 300 complimentary parking spaces located on the West side and South side of our building, but if you would like to have Valet, we would be happy to connect you with our preferred valet company. Please inquire with the venue manager when booking an event.

What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

All payments are non-refundable. If you need to change your date and we have the date available, we will be happy to move your date at no additional cost.

How Far In Advance Should I Book? 

It is hard to say, but we always encourage the sooner, the better. There are months when we have a full calendar a year in advance and months with openings up to a month prior.

Do You Charge Tax and Gratuity?

We charge 8.25% tax; however, we do not automatically charge gratuity. We believe our staff is wonderful and will treat you and your guests to an exceptional event. Therefore, we let gratuity be up to your discretion.

Do You Charge A Service Fee, and What Does It Cover?

Yes, we do charge a 22% service fee. The service fee does not go to the servers, event managers, or coordinators who work with you during your event.
