Facility Rental FAQ

Are you available on my selected date?

You can preview our availability calendar here. If you’re ready to move forward, please submit your request in the online form on the lower part of that page.


Can I tour the space?

Yes! Email info@thenabe.org with a proposed time between 10 am - 4 pm on weekdays.


What is the process once you confirm my date is available?

We will send you an initial Proposal of the fees for you to sign. Once you approve the Proposal, we will create a more formal Contract for you and our executive director to co-sign, as well as an Invoice. With a co-signed Contract, and receipt of 10% of the overall fees, due within one week, the booking is confirmed. The final balance is due at least 2 weeks prior to your event. The proposal, contract and payment are done online through a tool, though you may pay with a check as well.


Do I get time to set up and break down the space for my event in the Theater?

Yes! We give you one hour free before for set up, and one after the event for clean up.


Do you provide tables and chairs for the Theater?

Yes! We can set up 5’ round tables that seat 8 people and several rectangular tables, for a maximum seated dining capacity of 120 people. We also have high top cafe tables that can be placed on the adjacent deck and courtyard areas in the front of the building. Clients are responsible for tablecloths and other decorations. No balloons, open flame/candles or glitter, please.


What is the sound system in the Theater?

We have one mic, speakers and a sound system that a phone or similar device can be plugged into (no Bluetooth but we have adapters). You can also have a live band or DJ, but after 8 PM it can be no more than “8” on the dial (80 decibels), and you must close the theater doors out of respect for our neighbors.


What equipment do you have for presenting images or video in the Theater?

We provide a pull-down screen but you would need to bring your own projector. We have an AV Cart you may use. Additionally, we have a monitor in the lobby mounted on the wall that can be used to screen a presentation.


Are there any rules for the gym?

To protect our floors, the gym can only be used for athletic events (not parties), and no food, beverages or street shoes are allowed in the gym.


Can I serve alcohol at my event?

We approve this on a case-by-case basis and if it’s approved, you will need to follow specific requirements to ensure it’s compliant with the law.


Do you handle compost, recycling and trash?

We provide containers for recycling, compost and garbage. However, if you exceed the allotted containers, you must take it with you at the end of your event.


What parking is available?

There is no white zone for loading/unloading, but there is ample street parking. Please ensure your guests do not double park.


Is the building ADA accessible?

Yes!
