Where do my guests park?

The venue does not have private parking; guests must pay to park on Ocean Avenue from April 1st – September 30th. Some side streets offer free parking.

When would my event have to end by?

All events must end no later than 11:00 pm. Vendors and guests must be off-premise no later than 11:30 pm.

Can I have a beach ceremony?

Yes, there are certain rules and restrictions for beach ceremonies. Ceremony set-up can not begin until after 5:00 pm.  Space is not guaranteed nor can you ask beach patrons to move. Taylor Pavilion equipment is not allowed outside the venue nor are any rented  outside chairs allowed inside. All rentals must go through Shore Catering.  The rental company would be required to set-up and breakdown ceremony at an additional charge.

Can I have a gazebo ceremony?

Shore Catering would rent the Gazebo for 3 hours. Any ceremony chairs would need to be rented separately through Shore Catering. The rental company would be responsible for set-up and breakdown for an additional fee. 

Can I have an indoor ceremony?

Yes, an indoor ceremony would consist of the dance floor being used as an aisle, a row of chairs for immediate family, and all other guests would be seated at their tables on the left and right-hand side of the dance floor.  The charge for an indoor ceremony would be an additional hour for the staff on site.

How early can I get in to decorate?

The building will be unlocked according to your “staff arrive” time noted on your contract. Any additional time would be $35/hr (plus travel) per staff member as needed.  If tables/chairs are needed for decorating, a minimum of 2 staff members will be required for set-up depending on the size of the event.

Can I have flame candles inside?

Yes, but all flames need to be in a glass holder to prevent both dripping wax and a fire hazard. Candlesticks are not permitted.  If linens are damaged by wax, the client would be held responsible for damages.

What is the alcohol policy?

Anytime alcohol is brought on premises, a registered Belmar-approved bartender would need to be hired by the client hosting the event. A $100 fee would need to be added to your invoice to cover liquor liability insurance.  You would be required to contact your homeowners and/or renters insurance for one-day event liquor liability insurance. Please name Shore Catering as additionally insured for this coverage on the day of your event.

Who handles rentals?

All rentals must go through Shore Catering, this includes the venue rental, applications, and 3rd party rental companies for all your furniture/equipment needs (round tables, padded chairs, service bar, cocktail tables, string lighting, etc).  Let us know what you are envisioning and we will provide you a quote.

Do I have access to the beach for my event?

Although the beach is not included in your rental, guests are permitted to walk on the beach after 5:00 pm. Prior to 5:00 pm, guests must purchase beach badges to access the beach during in-season months.  Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the beach and/or boardwalk.

How early and/or late do my vendors have access?

Your vendors may enter the venue according to the staff arrival time noted on your contract. They would be required to vacate the premises within 30 minutes of the event end time.  If you need additional time, it would have to be discussed prior to the event, and additional $35/hr fee would be added.

Can I rent the space and not have catering and/or staff?

The Pavilion can only be rented with one of our catering packages and on-site staff. We are responsible for unlocking, setting up, ensuring pavilion rules are being followed, and locking the building.

Can I bring in outside food?

In addition to one of our catering packages, you are allowed to bring in outside desserts, cake, or beverages. Other items are on a case-by-case basis; let us know the item you wish to bring.

Are there any high chairs on site?

Unfortunately, there are not highchairs on site.

What is the cleaning fee?

 The township has strict cleaning guidelines overseen by the Department of Public Works. The venue is professionally cleaned after each event. Please have a check in the amount of $275 made payable to George Komitas on the day of your event.

How many bartenders would I need?

 The usual ratio is 1:80 guests. Your bar service will give you recommendations for bartenders and how much alcohol to supply. We recommend using plastic for bar drinks. If glassware will be rented for the bar, a bar-back responsible for racking glassware would need to be hired.

Can I go see the venue anytime?

No, venue tours are by appointment only. On your first tour, we suggest taking photos/videos to refer back to. All additional venue walk-throughs are subject to travel/time charges.

What is the room set up fee?

If using the Pavilions tables and chairs an additional $2 per person charge for the time and labor to set-up and break down would be added. 

What is a Maitre D?

It is a service charge for the front & back of house manager, who oversees the timeline, event details, staff, food, service, and an exceptional guest experience. They also ensure all township rules & regulations are being followed.  This person is mandatory for any Full-Service Event.

Are there any TV or projections screens on site?

No, there is no audio/video equipment at the venue. All equipment must be supplied and operated by you or your vendors.
