Outside event vendors are permitted with the exception of alcohol service which must go through our vendor that is licensed by the state to serve on premises.
Vendor or renters needing to unload may use our gated lot. All others use the city parking in front of the building. The ABQ Ride, route 11 bus, stops in front of the building.
We have ADA parking in front of the building. The facility entrance through our courtyard is a graded slope and easily accessible.
We have two separate areas for food service:
**We do not have any commercial cooking or prep facilities, therefore Albuquerque city code does not allow any preparing of food from scratch. You may use the ovens or cooktop to reheat already prepared items.
We have two public/guest restrooms.
-The women’s restroom has two stalls (one handicapped designed) and a sink.
-The men’s restroom has two urinals, one stall (handicapped designed) and a sink.
We have two additional staff restrooms in the Prep Room.
-These are both single restrooms with a toilet (handicapped designed), sink and side table.
They are especially great for outside vendors. The women's staff restroom has a baby
changing station that a guest may use when needed.
Fifty percent (50%) of the package total is due when signing the contract. This will book and block off the date for your event.
We will not hold or block off dates without the down payment and signed contract.
The remaining balance may be paid in any installments or a lump sum. All monies must be paid in full 30 days prior to your event date.
There is plenty of city parking available in front of our building, including several ADA spots by the entrance. During larger events, overflow parking is available at the pool or skate park.
For public transportation, we are directly on the ABQ Ride, route 11 bus (Walker/Lomas), that stops in front of the building.
Vendor or renters needing to unload are allowed to use our gated lot, please arrange this ahead of time to ensure someone is available to unlock the gate. This lot will be closed to further entry at the beginning of any event.
Yes! For an additional fee we can change the led screen to announce your event in 24 hour increments. Less text is better, just let us know when booking your event.
Our current inventory consists of:
All furniture must stay in its perspective room and may not be moved to hallways or other locations.
We do not supply any items for use in our gardens. Garden items must be rented and approved for use in a garden or lawn.
All outside rentals must be both dropped off and picked up within your rental time frame. Please make sure any company that you rent from is able to accommodate drop off and pick up to avoid any additional penalties.
Yes, we have all of these!
Our media fee includes:
We currently do not have an onsite or preferred caterer, so you may use whomever you wish. We do not recommend vendors but we do have information on local options at our rental info desk or directly from the Venue Manager.
Please note that neither the State of New Mexico or Albuquerque City requires any permit or license to serve food at private events (attendees from an invited list). All public events (anyone can attend) must register with the city and submit proof of license or permit in our office before an event can start. You can contact the Department of Environmental Heath at 505-768-2738 or https://www.cabq.gov/environmentalhealth.
We require that you have an insurance policy (“Events Insurance”) unless you opt for the refundable damage deposit ($500 or $1000 if serving alcohol).
Event Insurance policies are required to have $1,000,000 in liability insurance with us named as an additional insured. This will cover you in case there are any unexpected incidents or damage.
There are many companies that provide this service that ranges between $75 to $200.
Event Insurance is a policy designed to provide broad protection for situations in which an event holder must defend itself against lawsuits or pay damages for bodily injury or property damage to third parties. This policy also gives protection to the venue and or sponsors of the event by adding them to the policy as an additional insured. Examples, such as a slip and fall or damaged floors are covered by this type of policy. The different policies can also cover things such as theft, weather, military deployment, non-refundable deposits and more.
Our general liability insurance will cover injury or damages that occur due to the structure of the building or fault of the facility and or its staff.
We allow alcohol service at most events. Events excluded could be, but are not limited to, teen parties/graduations or events where a majority of the attendees are underage.
All alcohol must go through our state approved vendor. You will treat them just like any other outside vendor as far as payment, service and scheduling. If you have a favorite or special spirit, check with them as they may be able to serve it for you.
Keep in mind that even a small champagne toast will require this service in the state of New Mexico.
Service at any single event is limited to a maximum of 4 hours without exception. There is an additional fee, above the cost of the package, that covers security that we require to be present during service.
Note: Alcohol service for an event requires a minimum of 60 days notice, therefore it is not available for any last minute bookings.
We do not allow open flames of any kind or in any situation due to insurance and liability.
This does not include sterno lights, used in keeping food warm.
We have information available at the venue for many different vendors.
We do not recommend or endorse any third party services or products. We recommend that you verify any critical information from such parties on your own. Any information we have or display is brought in by the vendor directly or paid for by them without any expressed endorsement.
Yes. There are many layouts of venue that can accommodate your event needs depending on the size of your wedding. Tell us what you are looking for and we will let you know how that might work.
Yes! High-speed Wi-Fi is available with our facility and most of the gardens.
We will directly provide you a Wi-Fi password for computers and equipment. For mobile devices and guests, there are signs in the rooms with 'automatic logon' QRC codes.
We do not allow any celebratory activity of this manner inside or outside the building.
The remnants of these activities leave a trail that stays in-between the hardwood floor slats and outdoor public areas. Please know that this is not an exhaustive list and would include anything that would be left behind, throw a spark or spill.
We do allow fresh flower petals in the garden area. We also recommend the following as substitutions: bells, flags, paper airplanes, noise makers, glow sticks and ribbon wands.
