RENT THE VILLA TERRACE - FAQs

What do the rental fees include?
When renting the Charles Allis/Villa Terrace Art Museums for your special event you receive the use of the facility for your private event, photography and the option to entertain outdoors.  The rental fees also include room rental, the option for a docent-led tour of the home or garden and initial set up and use of tables and chairs.  On-site event staff is also provided to ensure your event runs smoothly from set up to breakdown.

Museum staff members are not to handle or set up any rented or personal items brought in such as flower arrangements, sound systems, guest books, party favors, programs, food, beverages, payment to vendors, etc.

Is parking provided?
Both Museums are located in urban neighborhoods that provide street parking.  Please ask the Events Manager for parking options.  Valet parking may be arranged for either location.

Am I required to use a caterer from your Approved Caterers List?
Yes. The Museums are delicate facilities and each caterer on our list understands the particular rules and limitations that are required of them. Each vendor also has liability insurance on file with us. We have a very extensive list of some of the best caterers in the city and we trust that any one of them will make your event a memorable one.

What are your beverage service policies?
Our exclusive bar service is provided by Zilli Hospitality Group.  All alcohol must be contracted through Zilli Hospitality Group. 

Can I have my event in the Renaissance Garden?
We invite you to use the garden for your photography, tours or event.  Please inquire about rates and restrictions.


Will you hold a date for me?
Due to the high volume of requests for dates that we get each day, we cannot put dates on hold for your wedding or event. A date is confirmed with a signed contract and a deposit.

Please contact the event manager for more information or to make an appointment to view our venues.
