Rental FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the seating capacity in hall?
Our max capacity is 180 (arranged in rows). For a sit down dinner we recommend 120 to 140. 170 comfortable folding chairs, 30 3′-diameter round tables, and 8 8′ rectangular tables are included in the rental of the Livery; the chairs can be arranged in theatre-seating (capacity approx 180), around the round tables (capacity approx. 120), or at rectangular tables (capacity approx. 140).

Does the hall have a kitchen? What is included in the kitchen (stove, fridge, sink, dishwasher)?
We do have a kitchen. The kitchen has a fridge, three-catch sink and an oven. It is not a caterer’s dream. We recommend that the caterer visits the location ahead of time. There is also a kitchenette and small bar fridges in the front lobby; this is generally where a renter will have a bar.

Does the rental include plates, cups, cutlery, linen, etc.?
No.

Do you have tables and chairs available to use?
We do have tables and chairs for use, included in the cost of the rental. The available items are:
– 30 three foot diameter round tables (seats four for a meal, six for drinks)
– 8 8′ rectangular tables
– 170 black cushioned folding chairs (more substantial than a regular folding chair)

Do you only allow specific caterers?
No we welcome any and all caterers. Again, we recommend that they visit in advance to plan.

How can I check if the Livery is available for a specific date?
As we have a number of groups operating out of this space, no dates can be confirmed without the confirmation and approval from the General Manager.

Can I have a bar at the Livery?
The Livery is not licensed, and it is the responsibility of the renter to obtain a Special Occasions Permit from the AGCO – the application form is available here and can be processed at your local LCBO. It is a good idea to obtain event insurance through your home insurance company for the event as well.

Can I use the parking lot?
There is a small parking lot next door to the Livery which you are able to use, whether it for a small smoking area or to put up a tent, etc. When booking the space, please let us know the intended use of the parking lot as we need to notify the town to be able to block off the entrances.

How many washrooms are there?
There is one accessible washroom on the main level of the lobby, and 3 women’s and 3 men’s washrooms on the upper level of the lobby.

Can I use the sound system?
Our sound system is available to connect to a music player (such as an iPod or laptop) that can be maintained by someone from your event. If you require more extensive technical needs or use of the theatre lights, we require one of our technicians to be there to operate the equipment. These costs are not included in the basic rental fee.
