Food & Beverage Policies – The Arts Council recognizes that you want to plan your event to suit your needs. Therefore, we do not have an approved caterer list. Instead, it is our policy that renters of Arts Council facilities are free to choose their own professional licensed caterer. We have worked with many caterers, bakers, florists and other event specialists and can certainly provide you with some options if needed. In addition, our alcohol policy states that the renter is free to bring the necessary beverages for their private function with a host bar. No alcohol is permitted to be sold on the premises without a State and City alcohol special event license.
