RENTAL FEE The Haus may be rented for 2-4 hours ($1,600) or 4-8 hours ($2,200). During our off season from November through April, we apply a 20% discount on the house rental. We book only one event per day, and the rental party may use all of the public spaces, including the Ratskeller, ballroom, and outside grounds. We do not have an elevator indoors, but we can set-up a portable ramp outside for access to the main floor.
The downloadable Haus Rental filegives further information about the rates and reservation process. CAPACITY The Haus can accommodate up to 220 people for a seated dinner. Wedding ceremonies can be held on the outside lawn and patio. In the case of inclement weather, or if you would simply prefer to be indoors, the ceremony moves inside. Receptions may also be held both indoors and outdoors. The third floor ballroom is a unique and exquisite space for post dinner dancing and fun, which can accommodate up to 300 guests while standing.
CATERING SERVICE We are proud to offer three outstanding caterers, who will work with you to make your event delicious! Their catering menus and websites can be seen on our Preferred Caterers page. We do allow an outside catering service for a fee, provided they are approved by the Event Services Director.
BAR SERVICE The Haus has an authentic German Ratskeller in the lower level, complete with a fireplace, bar, and three pub rooms. The bar can hold up to three beer kegs. There is a smaller, auxiliary bar across from the ballroom, and we can set up an additional bar on the main floor. The renting party supplies their own bar beverages. This allows the host to determine the alcohol selection for their event and results in a substantial cost savings for the party. The GAI hires a certified, staff bartenders for your event.
