FAQs

Can we bring our own food?

Yes, you may bring your own food or use an outside caterer. If you use an outside caterer it is important to find out if they will be attending the event while food is being served. We have found that we will get asked questions regarding the food. This could be very important if any of your guests have food allergies. All caterers are required to provide us with proof of insurance and health department/ food license – PRIOR to event date no exceptions.

Booking Policy for availability

We try to keep our booking policy as clear as possible. We do not hold dates without a signed agreement and the required deposit. We book hundreds of events per year so you can imagine the amount of inquiries are significantly higher than just the booked dates.

When we receive phone calls or meet with guests, our policy is to check the computer calendar and then to check the physical file for contracts. We do this to make certain we do not get double bookings.

There are instances when inquiries are made for dates and contracts have been sent out for customers to assume that the date is booked. Again we like to state quite clearly that this is just one step in the process and the final arrangement for booking is: we must receive the contract and deposit.

We speak to many people regarding availability on dates and we try to be clear with our policy. There are times that the contract will arrive by mail and on the same date we may have been stating that the date is available. This is because the physical contract and deposit are not in our hands. We will, however, go by the mailing date on the envelope when two people wish to book the same date on the same day to determine the booked event.

Are there nearby rooms for guest to stay?

There are a few hotel/motel accommodations within a few minutes of the California Room.

Do you allow Photo booths?

We do not allow outside photo booths. We do have a photo booth for rental. The cost is $349.00 for a four hour rental.

Can we bring outside beverages?

New Hampshire state law does not allow for any outside beverages into a licensed premise. This includes water bottles, punches, soda or any alcoholic beverages. We do allow gift baskets for raffles and fundraisers to contain alcoholic beverages. These baskets after they are awarded or given away will have a name tag placed on them and be held in the back room until the guests decides to leave the event.

Can we attach decorations to the wall?

You may attach a reasonable amount of decorations to the walls using blue or green painters tape only. No other fastening method will be allowed including 3M removable hooks, pins, nails or screws.

Can we attach decorations to the ceiling?

You may attach a reasonable amount of decorations from the ceiling providing that they do not interfere with the sprinkler system or the structural integrity of the ceiling. The method allowed to do this is by Magnets only.  We do not allow items to be tied up over the ceiling grid.

Can we rearrange the tables and chairs?

Yes, you may rearrange the tables and chairs anyway like providing that they are not dragged. The table bases have a tendency to grab the carpet seams and tear them, therefore they must be carried to the new location. At the end of the event the tables and chairs need to be moved back to their original location.

How many tables and chairs are in the room?

We have a few ways you can arrange seating. There are approximately 16 tables 38”×38”and six tables 30” x 60”. The 16 tables can be brought together and seat either six or eight persons for a total of 64 people. The six tables can seat six people each for a total of 36 people. Our second room has 20 tables that can seat 4 persons or they maybe move together to seat ten tables of 8.

Do you supply table linens?

The cost of square table cloths are $2 each, you may however substitute these for additional colors if they are available at cost from the linen company. We also offer the option of renting linen napkins for $40.00 for 100 napkins in 21 colors.

Do you have linen napkins?

Yes, we have 21 colors available for an additional cost of $.40 each they are available in bundles of 100.

Does the rental include a DJ?

The rental does not include an actual DJ person. It includes the use of our built in DJ sound and light system. This system will run by itself from any device that plays music with a headphone jack. We do not allow outside DJs to use our system they must bring their own equipment, not exceptions. This house system is for use when no DJ is being used. However we do recommend a DJ service from the seacoast that provides entertainment for many events in the room. We have a negotiated price of $350 for a four hour event or $500-600 for a four-five hour wedding. Pricing may vary with additional hours or specialized needs. We do not receive any compensation from this referral.

Do you have a preferred vendors list?

We do not have a preferred vendors list. We believe that it limits your choices to customize your event.

Do you have food packages?

We have an interactive menu on our website that will calculate out the exact charges if you were to purchase food through us. We believe this is a better method to allow you to design your own menu rather than having a caterer tell you what you can or can’t do.

Is there a kitchen that we can use?

We do not have any availability for use of a kitchen for heating or food storage available.

Do you have plates and serving utensils available?

We do offer the option to use our dinner plate’s and flatware. The current fee for this is $125.00 up to 60 people and $175 over 60 people. If you need chafing warmers the fee is 9.00 each. If you are ordering food from us the cost is included!

Is there any type of item you do not allow in the room?

We do not allow chocolate fountains, piñata’s, latex body paint, black lights, glitter or confetti of any type. If you are unsure about an item please ask prior to the event.

Are there a minimum number of hours for a rental?

Yes currently we have a minimum four hour rental. The cost is always based on $75 per hour. We do ask that at the end of your event that you do cleanup promptly as there may be another event scheduled within hours of your event.

Do you charge extra for weddings?

Our rental prices are the same for any type of event. We do not believe that is correct to charge you additional money because you’re having a wedding reception

What are we required to do for cleanup?

Is expected that you remove your decorations, food and any trash that you may want to discard. We do have trash bags and barrels available and have a dumpster on site. We do ask that you do not remove the table cloths. We will pick them up in a manner that will keep his much debris on the tablecloth rather than the floor. We don’t expect you to vacuum however if there is a large amount of food such as cake we would ask that a reasonable attempt is made to clean it.

I had my wedding and reception at the California room Jeff was very accommodating and very well priced in this economy. He exceeded my expectations. Before you rent a VFW, check his place out!! It was an amazing and memorable experience. Jeff provided food, alcohol and even a DJ, at such a great rate. The room is very well done. I would absolutely use him again.

We had our wedding and reception here. Jeff was very nice and set the hall up just the way we wanted it to be. We have rented halls for other functions in the past. They were no where near as personal and inexpensive as The California Room. Thanks for helping us create amazing memories!
Thank you both! Your wedding was great!

We had my Dad's 84th birthday party here. We also had his 80th here as well. I hope we are able to host another one for him here as well. The hall was very clean and set up beautifully when we arrived. Bathrooms were immaculate. The food was awesome, and plenty of it. The bartender was delightful. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
Thank you Jeff, you and your staff did an awesome job!

We had our son's college graduation party in the brand new room at the California Room on 9/21/13, approximately 50 people. The room was plenty big; enough room to mingle, dance & eat. We brought our own food & music. It was great, we plugged an I-pod into the sound system provided and had a blast! It got warm in the room due to AC problems; Jeff was right there with a solution though and was able to cool it off. We liked the fact that Jeff Crocker was on the premises & available to help if needed. We highly recommend the California Room to anyone!
Thank you,
Jeff & Suzette Miller

On Sunday, August 18, 2013 we had a party to celebrate our friends 30th wedding anniversary. This is actually the 2nd time we have rented the California Room. The room is a great place to have a party like this. Jeff Crocker is very accommodating and wants to ensure that everything is setup well. Jeff is always reachable by phone or email. The sound system is great; we brought our laptop and put iTunes on shuffle and had great music playing for the duration. The bar service is good. The room layout is very nice and offers plenty of space. This time around we brought our own food. The first time we had it catered. Either way, it sure beats having 50-60 people at your home. I highly recommend The California Room to anyone that wants to have any type of function like this. We will definitely come back again!
