The Hall is open for private events and we are accepting requests to rent our Hall.  The Hall capacity is 230 people (170 for the main room and 60 for the Mess Hall).  We will follow whatever the current COVID restrictions are at the time of your event.  The Hall has been used for many different events to include weddings, receptions, banquets, award ceremonies, birthday parties, retirement parties, dances, celebrations of life, fundraisers, community organization meetings or parties, private lessons or classes and more. 
Our hall rental fees are $500 for a minimum 4 hour block.  For every hour in addition to the 4 hour block it is $125/hour.  We have a $200 fee for security, clean-up and maintenance per event.  To secure a date and time for your event, a $100 down payment is required along with a signed contract.  We do have a full bar.  If you wish to use the bar, our bartender fee is $100 for a 4 hour minimum and any hour after 4 hours is $20/hr.  If you expect 100 people or more we require 2 bartenders. The additional bartender is $20/hr.   

We have the Mess Hall available for smaller events at $200 for a 2 hour minimum and $50 per hour after the first 2 hours.  If you have a short event such as a business meeting or luncheon, contact us to see if the Mess Hall would apply.  For either Hall we do have other cost options for certain events and groups.  Contact us to see what those are and if they apply to your event/group.  If you would like to see if the date you would like to hold your event is available, check out our Event Calendar.
You may bring in your own food at your own risk or hire your own cater that needs to bring their own equipment.  No use of our kitchen is allowed unless your cater is the cater that contracts with our Post.  To contact that cater you may email him at tom@eliteepicurean.com.
