How far in advance should I book my event?
Bookings typically occur 3-6 months in advance. However, we recommend booking 6-12 months in advance for events taking place during the late spring and summer months (May-August) as well as the month of December.
How do I book my event?
Bookings can be done in person or over the phone. To book events greater than 30 days in advance we require a 50% down payment +$500 security deposit and a signed contract. To book events less than 30 days in advance we require the full amount to be paid + $500 security deposit and a signed contract. The security deposit is fully refundable if there is no damage or loss to the premises, or if you have not gone over on time. Balance must be paid in full 30 days before the event. If you fail to pay the balance due on time a $50/daylate fee will be charged. If the balance isnot paid in full 2 weeks prior to the event, your reservation will be cancelled and no event will be provided.
Can I change my date?
Yes. We allow a one time change, as long as the new date you are requesting is available and the change is made more than 90 days in advance. The request to change a date must be made in writing.
What is your cancellation policy?
You may cancel the event for a refund of the amount paid including your security deposit as long as The View receives written notification of cancellation within 72 hours of the day of first booking. Cancellation requests past the 72 hours of the day of first booking will lose the initial amount paid. However, the security deposit will be refunded and any remaining balance will no longer be due. If we are able to book another event to replace the cancellation The View will refund the amount paid, minus a $100 administration fee.
How many guests can The View accomodate?
For a sit-down banquet style event The View can comfortably accommodate 130 seated guests and still have room for food tables, a gift table and cake table, and/or standing guests. The number of guests we can accomodate for a reception style, flow-through event depends on the layout but should easily accomodate 300+ guests throughout the night. For a ceremony style event we can easily accommodate 130 seated guests.
Can we come early? or Stay late?
The rental includes 6 hours or 12 hours of exclusive use of the venue space. This time slot accounts for set-up and clean-up. Extra hours or all day rental can be provided for an additional cost. You, your permitted invitees, and your vendors will have access to The View starting at the beginning of your reserved time block and no earlier. At the end of your rented time block, you, your Invitees and any vendors shall have exited The View, and your event must be cleaned up, taken down, and Invitees departed by your allotted time block. Any items or services that are provided by The View, will be set up and ready to go upon your arrival time and then taken down and cleaned upon your departure. NOTE: Any items or services brought in by you, your invitees, or your vendors must be set up, taken down, and cleaned up by you, your invitees, or your vendors within your allotted block time. This includes taking out the trash.Any time past your rented time block shall incur an additional fee of $200 per hour charged in full hour increments before midnight and $500 per hour charged in full hour increments after midnight. Under no circumstances is your Event allowed to go within 2 hours of another event. If your Event continues to go within 2 hours of another reception or event (at the sole discretion of The View Staff) you will be required to leave the venue immediately and you will be charged an additional cleaning fee of $500.Table, chair, and base linen set up and take down are included with the rental agreement.All other set-up is to be provided by the client and/or the hired vendors.Your event must be scheduled to end a minimum of 60 minutes prior to the ending rental time. The final 60minutes should be used for late guests and for the event party to clear out gifts, clean-up and take out the trash. Any hired vendors are to abide by the same time frame as well.
Do we have to use specific vendors?
No. We are an open vendor venue. There is no charge to bring in your own vendors. We work with some pretty amazing vendors and would be happy to pass on their information to you. All vendors must be vacated no later than the contracted rental time block and are responsible for cleaning up their own services.
Is smoking or alcohol allowed?
As per Utah State Law, smoking is not permitted inside or within 25 feet of the building. However, we do allow for alcohol service to be provided for $500 fee. The alcohol service must be provided by the client and must be a professional licenced and approved bar-tender or bartending service and must have required insurance certificates. We reserve the right to dismiss the bar-tender and alcohol service at any time if we feel like any risks might arise. We also ask for a courtesy cut-off time at 9 PM for serving alcohol to allow enough time for clean-up and closing the venue at 10 PM.
