Should you request to provide alcohol to the event, you are obligated to purchase host liquor liability insurance for $1 million if it is not provided through your caterer or bar service.  The event must end by 10:30pm to allow for cleanup and full closure of the venue by 11pm. We require a $1 million general event liability insurance certificate for your event and $5 million for general aggregate. Cover for the provision of alcohol must also be included which can be obtained online or through your personal insurance company.  (If you are booking insurance on EventHelper, choose YES for alcohol coverage and YES to waiver of Subrogation as they are mandatory).
