Celebrate FAQ

I am interested in celebrating at Nook. What is included in the rental fee?

When you celebrate at Nook, your $600 rental fee includes the space and everything in it. This means furniture, toys, etc will be provided by Nook. Food, drinks, utensils, decor, etc is to be brought in by the party hosts themselves.

Will Nook staff members be running an activity during the party?

Nook’s staff members will be present during the party, but they will not be responsible for running any party activities/crafts. Hosts are more than welcome to bring in a craft or activity for their party, but they will be responsible for organizing/running them.

How much time do I have for set up/clean up?

All parties get a 1 hour set up built into their 3 hour rental time. Clean up time is not included in your rental time, but, you will get 30 minutes for clean up. All deep cleaning will be done by Nook; all you will be responsible for is removing anything that may have been brought into the space by you or your guests. We will take care of the rest!

Is alcohol allowed to be brought into the space?

Yes, alcohol is permitted in the space for adult consumption only. Nook and its staff will not be responsible for serving alcohol.

Are outside entertainers (i.e. balloon artists, clowns, etc) welcome into the space?

Yes, outside entertainment is welcome in the space for your celebration. Please inform Nook before the date of your event.

Am I allowed to hang things up on the walls?

Yes, but only wall-safe materials may be used on Nook’s walls (i.e. command strips, painters tape, etc.). You will be charged for any damage to the walls resulting from your decorations.

Are decorations allowed to go up anywhere outside the designated party room?

We ask that all decor stays inside the party room and away from the play area itself.

Does the “No Shoe” policy apply to parties?

Yes, we ask that all guests take off their shoes once they enter the space. It may be a good idea to notify or remind your guests of this rule before the party occurs.

I understand that Nook is designed for children ages 0-5. If a child over 5 attends my party, will they be allowed in the space?

Yes, children over 5 are welcome in the space. Typically, we do not allow older kids to participate in play during business hours for safety reasons, but for private parties, it is up to the host to decide whether or not they would like the child engaging in play.

When is the remaining balance for my party due?

All remaining balances must be paid at least 14 days before your party date.

Can I make party reservations for the Ballston location?

Ballston party bookings are not available yet. Stay tuned for announcements on Nook’s website and social media accounts.

I am hoping to have over 20 children to attend my party. Is it possible to do so?

Yes, but the maximum capacity for total number of guests is 50.
