What is your policy for changing rooms?

Our room prices are the same for both rooms. However, there are times when booked parties confirmed guest counts exceed capacity of the original room booked. We do reserve the right to switch rooms once we have confirmed there is an issue. We will allow guest to choose the room they prefer, keeping in mind if we have to change the room selected to accommodate the number of guests we will and notify the two party’s of the changes.

Can we bring our own food?

Yes, you may bring your own food. If you use an outside caterer it is important to find out if they will be attending the event while food is being served. We have found that we will get asked questions regarding the food. This could be very important if any of your guests have food allergies. All caterers are required to pay $275.00 per event and  provide us with proof of insurance and health department/ food license – PRIOR to event date no exceptions.

Booking Policy for availability

We try to keep our booking policy as clear as possible. We do not hold dates without a signed agreement and the required deposit. We book hundreds of events per year so you can imagine the amount of inquiries are significantly higher than just the booked dates.

When we receive phone calls or meet with guests, our policy is to check the computer calendar and then to check the physical file for contracts. We do this to make certain we do not get double bookings.

There are instances when inquiries are made for dates and contracts have been sent out for customers to assume that the date is booked. Again we like to state quite clearly that this is just one step in the process and the final arrangement for booking is: we must receive the contract and deposit.

We speak to many people regarding availability on dates and we try to be clear with our policy. There are times that the contract will arrive by mail and on the same date we may have been stating that the date is available. This is because the physical contract and deposit are not in our hands. We will, however, go by the mailing date on the envelope when two people wish to book the same date on the same day to determine the booked event.

Are there nearby rooms for guest to stay?

There are a few hotel/motel accommodations within a few minutes of the California Room.

Please call the following and mention you are calling from the California Room and you are looking for discounted rooms for your event.

Do you allow Photo booths?

We do not allow outside photo booths. We do have a photo booth for rental. The cost is $349.00 for a four hour rental.

Can we bring outside beverages?

New Hampshire state law does not allow for any outside beverages into a licensed premise. This includes water bottles, punches, soda or any alcoholic beverages. We do allow gift baskets for raffles and fundraisers to contain alcoholic beverages. These baskets after they are awarded or given away will have a name tag placed on them and be held in the back room until the guests decides to leave the event.

Can we attach decorations to the wall?

You may attach a reasonable amount of decorations to the walls using blue or green painters tape only. No other fastening method will be allowed including 3M removable hooks, pins, nails or screws.

Can we attach decorations to the ceiling?

You may attach a reasonable amount of decorations from the ceiling providing that they do not interfere with the sprinkler system or the structural integrity of the ceiling. The method allowed to do this is by Magnets only.  We do not allow items to be tied up over the ceiling grid.

Can we rearrange the tables and chairs?

Yes, you may rearrange the tables and chairs anyway like providing that they are not dragged. The table bases have a tendency to grab the carpet seams and tear them, therefore they must be carried to the new location. At the end of the event the tables and chairs need to be moved back to their original location.

How many tables and chairs are in the room?

We have a few ways you can arrange seating. There are approximately 14 tables 36”×72 in the large room. Our second room has 20 tables that can seat 4 persons or they maybe move together to seat ten tables of 8.

Do you supply table linens?

The cost of square table cloths are $2.75 each, you may however substitute these for additional colors if they are available at cost from the linen company. We also offer the option of renting linen napkins for $75.00 for 100 napkins in 21 colors.

Do you have linen napkins?

Yes, we have 21 colors available for an additional cost of $.75 each they are available in bundles of 100.

Does the rental include a DJ?

Please contact us for our policy regarding DJ’s.

Do you have a preferred vendors list?

We do not have a preferred vendors list. We believe that it limits your choices to customize your event.

Do you have food packages?

We have an interactive menu on our website that will calculate out the exact charges if you were to purchase food through us. We believe this is a better method to allow you to design your own menu rather than having a caterer tell you what you can or can’t do.

Special requests are not a problem, we have many items that are not listed online. Please ask.

Is there a kitchen that we can use?

We do not have any availability for use of a kitchen for heating or food storage available.

Do you have plates and serving utensils available?

If you need chafing warmers the fee is 9.00 each. If you are ordering food from us the Plates and Flatware cost is included!

Is there any type of item you do not allow in the room?

We do not allow chocolate fountains, piñata’s, latex body paint, black lights, glitter or confetti of any type. If you are unsure about an item please ask prior to the event.

Are there a minimum number of hours for a rental?

Yes currently we have a minimum four hour rental. The cost is always based on $75 per hour Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday rates are $100 per hour. We do ask that before the end of your event that you do cleanup promptly as there may be another event scheduled within the hour of your event.

Celebrations of life have no minimum rental period.

Do you charge extra for weddings?

Our rental prices are the same for any type of event. We do not believe that is correct to charge you additional money because you’re having a wedding reception

What are we required to do for cleanup?

Is expected that you remove your decorations, food and any trash that you may want to discard. We do have trash bags and barrels available and have a dumpster on site. We do ask that you do not remove the table cloths. We will pick them up in a manner that will keep his much debris on the tablecloth rather than the floor. We don’t expect you to vacuum however if there is a large amount of food such as cake we would ask that a reasonable attempt is made to clean it.

TESTIMONIALS

I had my fiance's 30th surprise party here and I couldn't have been more happy with this location! The room was clean and ready for us right on time. The bartender was extremely nice and the owner answered all of my phone calls and emails quickly leading up to my event. For the size of the room and the services provided, it's very affordable. Would definitely recommend and rent again!

I had my wedding reception here and it was perfect! Jeff took exception care of the room to present it perfectly. It was very affordable and turned out amazing. The food was delicious and hot! All my guest raved about how great the food was! We had stuffed chicken and stuffed shells, roasted vegetables and potatoes. I was very impressed with the turn out of the room and its presentation. The photo booth was also a huge hit and all my guest loved and had fun going inside and getting to take there photo home with them! Jeff truly cares about the outcome of your event and will work with you to ensure it's exactly how you want it!

We just had my parents 50th wedding anniversary party here(65 people). The food was really good. We got the house salad, chicken broccoli rigatoni and the chicken parmesan, so good. They were very open to letting us organize it how ever we wanted. The whole event went great! Its hard to see the place when you are driving. Everyone said that had to turn around. Not a big deal. Maybe balloons and a road sign for your next event.

We just had my daughter’s 16th birthday party here last night and it fit what we were looking for. We planned to bring our own food (a taco bar) in order to keep costs down. Just be sure to bring EVERYTHING you might need for the meal including a power strip/extension cord if you need to plug things in. We used their sound system connected to my phone to be our own “DJ” and this worked out very well. The dance floor and lights were perfect. It was the right sized venue for our 70 person group. Just be aware that all drinks have to come from them (also no tap water only bottled). We used drink tickets for the teens and cash bar for the adults. We all had a fun night!

I attended a wedding over the weekend. More people showed up than were expected. Which filled the tables that were already set. The mother of the bride had asked the staff to please set up two extra tables in advance, upon the arrival of the bridal party. Which they only had two waitresses on, and one was the bartender! The bride's mother felt ignored, and the staff didn't put the tables up until after the DJ announced it was time to eat! I couldn't believe it! Sure, the wedding party could get their food, and what, eat while standing?! I will say the food was good, the soda was a bit pricey. The set up of the room was nice...But, why weren't the staff in uniform?

Chef Jeff, was amazing cooking Cameroonian and Ethiopian cuisine for one of my Event back in March. The whole course meal was cooked as if he lived in Africa and have already cooked the food prior. With little knowledge cooking African cuisine, he was able to think outside the box and create a meal that everyone raved about. I was impressed and would be using him again to carter upcoming events. Thank you Chef Jeff for all you did to make our event a success.

This is a nice place to rent out for a party. The inside is clean with a good amount of space for about 60-80 people. They have a dance floor and a bar. The bathrooms were pretty nice as well. The place is also reasonable priced. There seems to be plenty of parking. The only draw back is, is it behind a pizza shop. Some people said it was hard to find, but our GPS got us there without a problem.

I had a very positive experience at the California Room. I attended my cousins daughter's wedding on October 7, 2017. "It was fabulous! From the perfect weather to the event staff itself. We were surrounded by family and friends - it was quite a gathering. So many guest raved on how the food and service were. From the staff, DJ and those in attendance, made for a memorable night.

This is a clean, well-lit, well-managed function facility for smaller events. They have two rooms. The smaller room seats 80 and the larger seats up to 130 (I believe). The rooms are minimally decorated but they do allow you to bring your own decorations as long as it doesn't involve tape on the walls. Each room had its own full bar. The only downside to this place is the small dance floors. I have worked here as a DJ as well as used them for private functions of our own. A great value function hall.

It was a very personal place and what I mean is it's a decent size but small enough that I u have a family function like a wedding or birthday party there, it's small enough that noone will feel left out.

Been here for 2 weddings. Both times 1 of the 2 toilet handles were broken. A/C broken or not turned on, everyone sweating. Drinks are way over priced (3 bucks for a soda!) Staff rushes you out at the end of your time block.

My mom just hosted my bridal shower this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing! I'm paying a fortune to get married up North and there room almost looks like the room I'm getting married in. So I highly recommend The California Room. The only thing I would do is request a rule sheet. They have a couple rules that we were unaware of but it wasn't a big deal! All my guest loved the room! And you cannot beat the price! Also the owner and staff are very nice!

We had our wedding and reception here. Jeff was very nice and set the hall up just the way we wanted it to be. We have rented halls for other functions in the past. They were no where near as personal and inexpensive as The California Room. Thanks for helping us create amazing memories!
