How do I schedule a tour?
Go to “Contact Us” on our website or email to request a tour.
Do I have to use a caterer from your Preferred Vendor List?
You are welcome to use any caterer you would like but there is a fee if you use a caterer that is not on our preferred list.
Can I have a DJ or a Band?
Yes, we welcome both. We do have recommendations. All outside vendors will need to provide insurance for the day of the event.
Can I have catered food dropped-off and then serve it myself?
It’s your party, you should enjoy it! If you’d like to get food dropped off, we require that you hire Carol’s Eventing Staffing to help serve and clean up.
Do you have a parking lot?
Loft Lucia does not have designated parking. Guests are welcome to park at the McDonald's Headquarters on the weekends, it is less than a block away. We are 2 blocks away from the Morgan Pink/Green Line Stop.
What are your BYOB Restrictions?
Alcohol needs to be purchased through your caterer or from Prestige Wine & Spirits in Westmont. Prestige will pick up any unopened product at the end of your event and reimburse it to your account. All alcohol must be served by your caterer or Carol’s Event Staffing. We do not allow shots, bottle service, or any other self serve options.
Are tables and chairs included in your rental price?
Yes. We include bar tables, rounds, farm tables, lounge furniture, dining chairs, benches, a projector, and flatscreen TV in our rates. Just ask for a list of our inventory.
Is there wifi available at the space?
Yes, we have commercial-grade WiFi.
Do you have a sound system we can use?
Yes. We have a house sound system that allows you to create playlists remotely. Our microphones are also available for an extra $175.00.
Can we set up custom decorations?
Yes, within limits. We ask that you do not use nails, screws, etc. and that you remove the décor at the end of your event. You will need to hire an insured professional for any installation that involves a ladder.
Are there hotels nearby?
The Hyatt House is the closest hotel to Loft Lucia, it is only a 2 min. walk from the venue. The Hoxton is also located within walking distance!
How long is our rental window? When can we start setting up?
We offer a 10-hour event window that includes setup and breakdown. We have a 12:00 am curfew on Friday and Saturday, and an 11:00 pm curfew Sunday-Thursday. The event should end one hour before the rental window ends. If you would like to set up earlier than the contracted time you can access the space for $150.00/hr.
Can we have our stuff dropped off the day before? How about picking up the day after?
Possibly. It depends if there are events scheduled the day before and after. We can usually let you know 1-2 weeks before your event.
Can we ship packages to your venue?
Unfortunately, we are not set up to receive packages. Please ship your items to the nearest FedEx for in-store pickup.
Is your space handicap accessible?
Yes, it is fully accessible, including all four multi-person restrooms.
Do you have a coat room?
We have plenty of coat racks but no designated coatroom.
Do you have a bridal suite?
We do not have a bridal suite. Wedding parties take advantage of our multi-level venue and let the reception area serve as their staging area pre-ceremony.
Are there any restrictions on types of events?
We do not allow ticketed events.
Do you have a kitchen?
We have a large commercial-grade kitchen included for your caterer’s usage.
Do you have an event planner on staff?
Our team is available to help throughout the process but we cannot take the place of a day-of coordinator. There will be a Loft Lucia representative on-site throughout the entirety of your event.
Do we need insurance?
You will need to purchase “Day of Event Insurance” through the link provided in your contract. It will cost roughly $180.00. If you would like us to use your company’s insurance it will need to be submitted 30 days prior to your event.
