Damage Fees:

Damage fees are refundable provided all policies are followed and no damage is incurred during your event.  Event hosts must check in and out with our staff at the Welcome Desk so that the condition of the room may be documented.  Any issues or damages will be reported to our rentals manager, and fees assessed accordingly.

Residency Requirements:
Anyone 21 years or older that lives in the cities of Richmond Heights, Maplewood, or Brentwood is eligible for resident rates on facility rentals.  The resident must be present for the entirety of the event and proof of residency is required at time of booking. 

After Hours:
Reservation times that fall outside of THE HEIGHTS' hours of operations are charged an after hours rate in addition to the hourly rental rate.  After hours rates begin at 8:30 pm Monday through Thursday, 8:00 pm on Fridays and at 5:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.  Requests for after hours events must be submitted a minimum of 30 days prior to the event date to ensure we have the necessary staff to accommodate your event.  See the table above for after hours rates based on residency.
Decoration Policies:
All groups must follow the decorating policies listed below. If any of these policies are not followed, the event host risks having their damage fee revoked and additional fees assessed for cleanup and repairs.
  • Confetti, glitter, glue, slime, paint and/or dye are not permitted.  Balloons are allowed as long as they do not contain confetti or glitter.
  • Candles or open flames are not allowed with the exception of gel fuel canisters for chafing/warming dishes.
  • Decorations may not be attached to the ceilings, light fixtures, windows, door/window frames or sprinkler system. 
  • Only painter's (blue) tape or 3M Command strips may be used to adhere decorations or signs to walls, tables, chairs and counter tops.
  • Glass containers or decorations are not allowed in our meeting rooms.

Food, Catering & Alcohol Policies:

Each meeting room is equipped with a microwave, sink and small countertop.  Prepared food & drinks may be brought into THE HEIGHTS by the event host or a caterer.  Our catering kitchen may be added to your reservation, which provides access to industrial sinks, food prep/serving space and a residential size refrigerator and freezer.  The oven and stove are not available.

If your group is interested in having alcohol at the event, a caterer with a current state liquor license must be present to serve it.  Arrangements must be made in advance and a copy of the liquor license must be given to the rentals manager at least one month before the event.  Alcohol is not permitted without the use of a licensed caterer.  Exceptions may be made for non-profit fundraisers.

Changes, Cancellations & Refunds:
We understand things change quickly and often when it comes to planning events.  Did your guest list suddenly grow?  Need to add more time?  We'll check our existing schedule and try to help in any way possible. 

Cancellations must be made thirty (30) days prior to the start of the scheduled event in order to receive a full refund.  Partial refunds, or refunds due to cancellations less than thirty (30) days before the scheduled event are not available.

If there are no issues, additional equipment needs or policy violations, damage fees will be refunded within 10 business days after the scheduled event.

Submitting a Reservation Request:
Reservation requests may be made by completing our interest form and will be returned in the order in which they are received. Please allow 3 business days for our team to check availability and reply to your form submission.  All fees are due at the time of booking as deposits or down payments are not available.

Requests for after hours events must be submitted a minimum of 30 days prior to the event date to ensure we have the necessary staff to accommodate your event.
