How do I check in or checkout?
• A key will be available for you at your rental time and instructions to retrieve will be provided by a staff member. A member of the Bluesky Events Studio team can be available at entry to conduct a walkthrough and to lock up at the end of your event if you choose to include an onsite attendant in your rental. We will make sure that you have all that you need, before we leave the space in your hands. We ask that you treat it as you would your own home. A checkout list is posted on the large refrigerator in the break room area. One will also be left on the counter for you to checkoff and sign before leaving the building.

Are we required to clean up after the event?
• We ask that you remove all trash from tables and chairs and wipe them down with the provided sanitizing wipes. Please sweep up any large debris from the floor and dispose of it in the trash. Mop up any spills to avoid accidents and attracting critters. Trash bags should be placed in the dumpster to the far-right hand side of the plaza. Please take all your personal items immediately at the end of your event. Items rented from other vendors such as decorators should also be removed at the end of your event. If the venue is not returned clean and, in the condition, it was given to you, your $150 security/damage fee will not be refunded.

How long do we have to use the venue? Does the rental package include setup?
The package you choose will include your setup time for your decorator, DJ, Photobooth, etc. It will also include your party time as well as the time for breaking down your event. If you need extra time, you may be able to add it to your package.

• Your contract will specify an “in-time” and an “out-time.”

What if I need additional time?
• If additional hours are needed please communicate this to us as soon as possible. Depending on availability and no other events before or possibly after your event we will do our best to accommodate.

An additional $125 per hour will be charged if the event goes over the specified time.

What if I booked additional time and don’t use it?
• If you purchase additional hours but you finish early you WILL NOT receive a refund. By purchasing additional hours another client was not able to purchase that time so you will not be refunded for leaving early.
