Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring in my own food?

Yes, you can. You can also use our kitchen to keep your food warm or cold. However, you may not cook your food at The Summit, as the kitchen is not appropriately licensed for food preparation. All of the food The Summit provides when catering is prepared offsite. If you are unsure which option would be best for you, you can discuss with our sales staff and compare the cost and services of a Summit catered event.

Can I bring in my own alcohol?

No, you cannot. The Summit has a liquor license, much like a bar. The law requires that all alcohol served at The Summit must be provided by The Summit. You may host some part or the entire bar if you wish to, or simply offer a cash bar. There are multiple options depending on your budget. We provide bartending staff at each event.

Can I bring in my own non alcoholic beverages?

Yes, you can. We have large insulated coolers available that you may use to chill your beverages. We also have ice available.

What time do you close?

Most of our events end by midnight with one hour afterwards to get your personal belongings into your cars. If you desire a different ending time, you can discuss this with our sales staff.

What happens if I need to cancel my reception?

In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your reception, we will try to resell your date. If we are able to resell the date for an event of comparable value, you will have to pay a $500 cancellation penalty. If we are not able to resell the date, you will need to pay for the full amount of the contract, not including the damage deposit.

Why does room rental pricing vary by weeknight and over the course of the year?

Our business is governed by the laws of supply and demand, just like any other business. Demand for event space varies considerably over the year. Demand is highest in the summer months, and demand is highest for Saturdays. So pricing for Saturdays in the summer is the highest of the year.
