Event Policies

Down Town Association's policies are designed to ensure a successful and enjoyable event.


An “inquiry acknowledges your interest in booking an event; it does not hold or confirm an event or room. Once an event goes to contract a temporary hold is placed on that date for the room and time requested until a signed contract and private dining rules sheet are returned with a deposit (where applicable).

In the event another party requests the same date and room as yours, you will be contacted by our sales office to return your signed contract. In the event that your contract is not returned in a timely fashion the Down Town Association will release the event space and time.

Attendance Guarantee

The Down Town Association requires a guaranteed minimum number of guests to be given to the Private Dining office by noon three business days prior to the event.


All deliveries must be arranged through the Private Dining Office. Deliveries must be made by way of the 20 Cedar St. stairway entrance. A freight elevator is available for all deliveries. The Club’s guest elevator is not to be used for any deliveries. Any materials and or gifts must be removed from the Club at the end of the scheduled event unless alternative arrangements have been made in advance.
