No, due to our location.

Yes, but with a few restrictions. You must have a licensed bartender with insurance. The insurance must list the Alpine Art Center as an additional insured. The Alpine Art Center must have a copy of their license prior to any alcohol being consumed. The Alpine Art Center staff will not clean-up/bus any alcoholic beverages. Please, make sure you read and understand our Alcohol Policy.
8: Can we have open flame candles at the Alpine Art Center?
Yes, you can! The candles must be contained so the wax does not drip on the linens. If wax drips on the linens, the renting party will be charged an additional fee.

Any rehearsal scheduled prior to the finalization date is subject to change as we continue to book events. We suggest you plan on 1 hour for your ceremony rehearsal.
