Below you will find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out directly to us.

We are here to help.

Do you allow outside vendors?

With the exception of food and beverage service, yes. All outside vendors must provide a Certificate of Insurance as part of an approval process. We may also require a vendor to complete a walkthrough of the space with us if the set-up or services are deemed outside of our normal scope. Check out our Locals We Love page to see a list of wonderful vendors who work in our spaces.


When is my payment due?

25% is due upon the contract signature. 50% is due 6 months prior to your event date. The remaining balance is due two (2) weeks prior to your event along with a final guest & entrée count. Please refer to your contract for your individual amounts.

Do you offer tastings?

Absolutely! Your Catering Sales Manager is happy to review available dates and pricing with you.


Is there a microphone or sound system to plug into?

Both Kaplan Hall and the Joy Moravitz Room have an in-house sound system. If you need additional AV for your event you will soon be able to find AV vendors on our Locals We Love page.

Does The Ora offer a rental discount to non-profit organizations?

Yes. With proper documentation, The Ora will offer a 10% facility rental discount for non-profit organizations that are issued a 501(c)3 status.

Is it possible to rent the entire building for our event?

Yes. We recommend buying out the entire venue for large or private events!
