Additional Rental Information


Renter must obtain at their sole expense a Certificate of Liability Insurance naming Town Hall Association as certificate holder and additional insured, with a minimum per occurrence coverage of $1,000,000 bodily injury and property damage coverage.

Liquor liability coverage is mandatory whenever alcohol is sold at Town Hall; host liquor liability coverage is mandatory for private receptions where alcohol is served. A copy of the required Certificate of Liability Insurance must be submitted to Town Hall 30 days prior to the event.

The Event Helper specializes in single-day/special-event insurance coverage. Town Hall’s information will auto-fill to the form while you make your purchase.

Important: Use the address of our venue to purchase your insurance certificate: 1119 8th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101


While any caterer can be used in conjunction with your event, Town Hall has a list of preferred caterers we work with frequently who represent a range of menu selections and pricing. Catering policies and logistics should be arranged with your event manager.

Preferred Caterers

Gourmondo | Foodz Catering | Kaspars Catering & Events | Cameron Catering | On Safari Foods | Madres Kitchen | Baked in Bosnia

Using a preferred caterer waives additional catering fees typically imposed for non-preferred caterers.

Rental FAQ

How do I confirm a date for an event at Town Hall?

Once a rental inquiry form is submitted, we will send you a proposal with the amount of the security deposit and the rental contract. When we receive payment of the security deposit and a signed contract, the date is confirmed.

How far ahead can I book my event?

You can book your event up to 13 months in advance; there is always more date availability the further out you are booking. Town Hall is sometimes able to accept rental bookings on short notice, based on availability.
