What are the rules associated with alcohol?
You have the option to bring in your own beer, wine, and liquor. If your event involves liquor/cocktails, you will need to apply for a “Limited Special Occasion Permit” from the North Carolina ABC Commission https://abc.nc.gov/Permit/SpecialPermits
All beverages (beer, wine, cocktails) must be served by a licensed and insured bartender, either through a catering company that provides bar service's or by a bartending company.
What are the rules concerning decor?
We love creativity! However, we do have a few decor guidelines to keep in mind. Candles with live flames are permissible if they are within a container, and the flame does not extend over the top of the container. Only no-mark hooks/strips should be used on the walls, no nails or tape please. Glitter, confetti, sprakerlers, and loose feathers are not allowed.
Do you offer half day pricing?
We do not book multiple events in a day due to keeping the best service possible on our end and offering plenty of time for our guests in terms of setup, event time, clean up.
What is the parking situation like?
Maven Monroe provides two designated spots for the client. Since we're only a 2.1 miles ride from Downtown, we encourage guests to use Uber, Lyft or another taxi service. If your guests choose to drive, there is plenty of FREE off street parking nearby.
What is the tear-down process after the event has ended?
During the standard rental time, the last hour is dedicated to personal/vendor cleanup. During this cleanup time, all personal items and decor must be removed from the venue. No items may remain overnight, with the exception of contracted items with pre-approved vendor pickup times. You do not need to break down the tables provided by the venue as we take care of your setup and breakdown of those items; your caterer and planner will handle cleanup of your rentals.
