In accordance with the state health regulations, no outside food or beverages may be brought on to the premises, unless provided by a prior-approved vendor.

 

When should I reach out to catering and bar services?

Catering and alcohol services through our in-house providers are planned and contracted separately from The Factory 12 Event Loft. First Class Catering information can be found at www.firstclasscateringin.com. We recommend contacting First Class Catering 6-9 months before your event.

What time will I need to leave the venue? 

Your Factory 12 Event Loft contract will state the load-in, event start, event end and load-out times for your rental period. All personal items, guests and vendors must be removed from the property by the end of your rental period, or an additional fee will be charged.
