Food & Beverage Policies
FOOD AND BEVERAGE All food and beverage is to be purchased solely through King St. Ballroom & Perch. All food and beverage charges are subject to a 24% service charge plus taxes, applicable on service charge and food & beverage. Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have a medical condition. Please notify your catering/conference services manager about any food allergies or restrictions.
GUARANTEES A final guarantee of attendance must be submitted by 10:00 AM, three business days prior to your event. Guarantees are not subject to reduction. If guarantee is not received, the expected number of guests indicated on the BEO, or the number served, whichever is greater, will be charged. Hotel will set 3% more than the guarantee request. Hotel requires signature approval of all banquet event orders, and must receive a signed copy prior to arrival.
EVENT SPACE Event Space, Rental Fees, and Food and Beverage Minimums are based on the event type, setup and the number of people in attendance. Should advance setup and late teardown be required, an additional charge may be incurred. Final room assignment is subject to change. Additional setup fees may be incurred should additional resets or turns be requested above and beyond the contracted space.
OUTDOOR EVENT SPACE Indoor space will be reserved for all outdoor events. Rain calls will be made at least 4 hours prior to the event. If a double set of both indoor and outdoor is requested, additional fees will apply. A $10 per person outdoor setup fee will be applied toward all outdoors events, excluding ceremonies and cocktail receptions. Events taking place outdoors must conclude musical entertainment by 10:00 PM, unless pre-approved by the Hotel. Hotel reserves the right to make final weather call.
