DO YOU BOOK PRIVATE EVENTS (ex: baby shower, bridal shower, work events) We do allow private events, however, if it is during our regular business hours and we have to close our shop.Our regular business hours are currently Monday-Saturday 10AM-7PM and Sunday Noon-5PM
CAN I CALL A FEW DAYS PRIOR TO A MEETING AND RESERVE A TABLE FOR A SMALL MEETING OF 5-6 PEOPLE? This is not a standard practice at Socra Tea. Most often we encourage you to arrive 30-40 minutes before you plan to meet with your group in order to secure a table.
Rates are $150.00 per hour, a minimum of 3 hours is required. This time will include any set up and tear down/clean up time you will need before and prior to your event. Each additional 30 minutes is an additional $50.00. This additional fee is due at the time you depart that day.
DEPOSIT TO RESERVE SPACE: 50% non refundable deposit is due in order to reserve/secure your space rental. The remaining balance is due at the end of your event, to be paid in full.
MAY WE ORDER BAKERY ITEMS FROM SOCRA TEA PRIOR TO OUR SPACE RENTAL?Yes, of course! If would like to pre-order tea, bakery items we would be more than happy to meet with you and review the menu and offer suggestions. All pre-ordered bakery orders are due two weeks prior to your event and payment for the bakery orders is Due in Full at that time.
IS OUTSIDE FOOD OR CATERED FOOD ALLOWED?Outside catering is allowed, however, we prefer to have documentation that they are licensed properly for events. You (the rentee) is responsible for clean up and removal of any trash the cater or food vendor create.
MAY WE DECORATE FOR A BRIDAL SHOWER OR SPECIAL OCCASION?Some decorating is allowed. We are also a gallery that houses quarterly art shows, so there is often art work on all walls, so all decorations would need prior approval by Socra Tea management prior to your event.
We can comfortably accommodate 36-40 people. We recently purchased all new tables and chairs. 20 Chairs4 30x30 tables2 30x60 tables4 benches (each seat 4)Lap Top Bar - seats 8
