What does each space include?

The Lounge includes the A/V System with a 20-foot projection screen, projector, a restroom, and a VIP / green room / bridal suite.

The Ballroom includes the catering kitchen, bar service window & area, and a restroom.

The Gallery is a raw room with no amenities and is attached to the Lounge.

The Deck includes 3 areas: a fully-enclosed second bar, a covered area with a fireplace, heat lamps & lounge area, and a fully-exposed outdoor deck area furnished with outdoor patio furniture.  All have a fantastic view of the city.


Does the Ballroom & Lounge open up into one larger space?

The Ballroom & Lounge are joined by 2 large sliding barn doors.  The wall between the barn doors is permanent; they cannot be "joined" as one large space without a separating wall.


Can I bring in my own food?

Yes, but all food must be prepared by an establishment with a catering license and/or a restaurant license. All caterers must have a catering license and be insured.  All food handlers/servers must have their Food Handler’s Permit.   All licenses & permits must be presented the night of the event.


Do you offer any furniture with the rental of WithinSodo?

We have light seating on the roof and one small couch downstairs.


Do you have more pictures of weddings / their set-ups other than what I see here?

Is my date available?

When we receive your request via the website’s contact form, we will be happy to tell you what our availability is.


I am in the neighborhood, can I stop by and take a look?

Due to the volume of requests, we give site tours by appointment only.


Can I put a hold on a date?

We wish we could do this but it just doesn’t work for our schedule to run smoothly. Once you’ve seen the space and had all your questions answered, we’ll receive a signed contract and a deposit and then the date is yours!


Do you work with any specific or preferred caterers or other vendors?

We have companies we like to work with however we don’t have any partnership restrictions on who you can bring in to help with your event.


Is there any other paperwork I need to have before I can have my event there?

Apart from any permits that your event requires, we have a standard contract/agreement. We also require every event to have a Certificate of Liability Insurance naming WithinSodo as “Additional Insured.”


Is there anything else I should know before I come see it in person and fall in love with WithinSodo?

Please know that we can’t wait to make your event a reality!
