THE 101 Has a flexible vendor policy so that you are able to customize your event to your liking!

Follow-up question: Are there any In-House/Exclusive partnerships?

THE 101 Beverage is our in-house, customizable beverage provider, and we have to say, it’s pretty epic.

Follow-up Question: What are vendor load-in and load-out times and logistics?

Vendors can load in at 10AM the day of your event, and can load out until 10AM the following day.

Follow-up Question: What are the vendor’s insurance requirements?

We require proof of liability insurance, which any licensed vendor will have, anyway!

We require proof of liability insurance from all clients and their hired vendors. Any licensed vendor will have this insurance coverage, and client event liability insurance can be purchased any time after THE 101 has been booked, but at least 30 days before the event. We encourage clients to use The Event Helper for their event day insurance needs. It will be the easiest insurance experience you have ever had!

THE 101 can accommodate 220 guests for a seated event and much more for a standing cocktail reception style.

When you reserve THE 101, you get the venue for 24 hours (including all taxes and fees), tables and chairs for 200 guests, your very own personal Client Concierge, and access to Walkthrough Wednesdays every week. Our other amenities, including our photo booth and  coordination are optional add-ons.

24 Hours. 10 AM the day of your event, until 10 AM the following day. Yes, you read that right. The 24-hour rental gives you more than enough time to set up, party, and tear down.

Follow-up Question: Is there a the curfew?

No amplified noise (read: dance parties) before 5PM Monday through Friday; Alcohol must stop by 2AM. 

Follow-up Questions: Can I come back in the morning and get my belongings? Can my vendors come back in the morning and get theirs?

Yes and yes. We do suggest you appoint someone to take gifts, and any personal items, home the night of.

Your Client Concierge is your dedicated venue representative from the moment you book, until the end of your event. They are there to make sure the venue functions perfectly for your event. 

The Night Manager comes on site once alcohol starts flowing, to ensure we have a dedicated person for facilities needs. Our Coordination service is an additional fee, and is 110% worth it.

Our coordinators give you your life back and make sure your event goes off perfectly. They will stay the entire evening, and handle everything from your set-up and flip, to vendor logistics, to getting you down the aisle even if your ceremony is offsite.

There are parking structures within 2 block blocks of THE 101. Street parking is also available and we recommend taking the streetcar for a true Seattle experience or catching a Lyft so you can travel worry-free!

We do not have one in-house. Typically, your DJ will provide A/V along with their services. We also have a number of Epic Vendors we work with regularly, that can facilitate a rental.

A room flip would be performed by a hired vendor unless you decide to work with us for your coordination services. At that point, we’ll take care of the details for you!

Typically, your vendors will handle set-up and remove what they bring to the venue. Clean-up (sweeping, mopping, bathrooms) is included in your rental fee; the client is only responsible for trash pick up. We do recycle, as well!

If you book coordination, your coordinator will handle your personal items and make sure you don’t incur any excessive cleaning fees.

Your caterer has ample power in the prep kitchen for warming plates. When using grills or ovens, they can set up in the alley near the loading dock, under a pop-up rental tent. This also needs prior approval from building management.
