Rent space at The Left Bank

We have renovated The Left Bank specifically for community use, and we welcome a wide variety of activities, from lectures to ping pong, and concerts to  receptions and birthday parties.  If you have an idea, please be in touch and we will work with you to make it successful!  We are constantly discovering new types of programs that appeal to our community.

Our Lobby community space (the former bank lobby) and our Garden Room (in the renovated basement) are each available for rental by individuals and groups.  Depending on the activity, the Lobby is good for up to 40-60 people; for a seated workshop with tables, it is fine up to about 25.  The Garden Room is accessed by stairs only and is good for up to 12.

The lobby and first floor are handicap accessible.

You will need to be in touch with us to confirm the time, day and fee, and to make arrangements to have the space unlocked/locked. In general, our guidelines include:

 

  • One time rental is $25/hour for the lobby and $10/hour for the Garden Room

  • If you will use the space on a regular or repeating basis, the price can be lower; we can discuss this with you but it is usually $20/hour or class for the lobby repeating use.

  • If you are offering a program open to the public, free of charge, we will not charge a rental but ask that you have a donation bowl and share the donation with the Left Bank.

  •  You will be responsible for setting up chairs and tables, and putting them away at the end of your program.  You also will be asked to sweep the floor.

  • We have a modest kitchen so you can bring food, warm it up or keep it cool, and tidy the kitchen when you leave.  We do not permit meal preparation.

  • We have about 30 chairs and 8 tables; if you need more you usually can borrow them from the school, town office, or library.

  • We have a sound system, projector and screen that are available for use.

  • No alcohol may be served unless you have a licensed bartender, and we must have copies of the license.

  • If you are offering a program with physical activity (yoga, tai chi, gymnastics etc.) your instructor must have proof of liability insurance.

  • Long term rentals always have precedence over one-time requests.

  • When a date, time and fee have been agreed upon we will email you a simple contract that will reserve your date.

 

Please be in touch with Rhonda Ratray or Christine Graham to start making your arrangements.  We would like to show you the space before you reserve it, to make sure it meets your needs. 

Thank you!
