All weddings and most social and nonprofit events will require a deposit to reserve the room and the date requested.  All deposits are non-refundable but are used against the final event order for that function.  In the event of cancellation four months prior to the event date or less, a cancellation fee of 50% of estimated charges will be required.  If a menu has NOT been set then City Club will base the cancellation fee on the food and beverage minimum set for your event.  Cancellation within one month of your event will result in a 100% payment of estimated charges.


All decorations are at the expense of the host.  Deliveries to the club must be coordinated through the Catering department.  No nails, heavy tape, staples or tacks may be used on walls, ceilings or furniture.  Confetti (with the exception of biodegradable confetti), sparklers and open flame candles are not permitted.  Fresh white or ivory rose petals can be thrown outside the building per Sundance Square management policy.
