15 Common Questions about Private Events in Society’s Scarlet Room

Choosing a venue for a private party or event? Any time you’re considering an event space, you have plenty of questions that need answering. We’ve got you covered.

Here are the answers to 15 of the most frequently asked questions about private events in the Scarlet Room:

1. “So, where is the Scarlet Room? And how is it affiliated with Society?”

The Scarlet Room is a smaller lounge within Society, its “sister” club. The two concepts share one roof, one entrance, and one owner, but offer two different experiences. The Scarlet Room is a more cozy and opulent space in which to hold private events or parties for up to 150 people (standing capacity).

Simply enter Society and take a right into the Scarlet Room.

2. “Are linens, tables and chairs included?”

All tables and chairs will be provided. If you would like to request tablecloths, we will provide this at no additional charge. 7 days’ notice is required for this request.

3. “Can I bring in outside alcohol?”

No. By law we are not permitted to allow beverages brought from outside onto our premises.

Absolutely! We politely request no confetti or glitter. Candles are permitted when enclosed in a hurricane holder.

5. “Can I have a DJ or live performer for my event?”

Of course! We have most audio equipment that performers require and we also have a list of DJs and performers that come highly recommended who are also familiar with our sound system.

If there is a performer that you would like to commission that is not on the list, a site visit between the performer and event venue manager is required prior to the event.
