Additional Information

If liquor is to be served to the public, a permit has to be secured from the Town of Lenox for your event.

This costs $25 per event and has to be applied for three weeks in advance. Our event coordinator will assist you with this process. A licensed bartender or caterer is required to serve the liquor and has to be named on the application.

It is possible for the caterers to bring necessary materials before the event and to have them picked up later. However, this must be scheduled in advance as our space for storage is severely limited.
