HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE VENUE FOR MY CEREMONY & RECEPTION?
Included in your site fee, you have access to the space for 12 hours (this includes your one hour of clean up). You have the ability to split up those hours on your day, or have a consecutive time block. All events must end at 11pm or before, allowing for your hour of clean up to begin at 11pm and end at 12am.
IS NEW VINTAGE PLACE ACCESSIBLE?
Yes. The design and layout of our space accommodates individuals of all abilities. The Vintage Hall is serviced by an ADA elevator, the Great Hall is serviced by an ADA lift, and the Lounge is at grade level. Convenient accessible parking is clearly marked and located right outside our door.

DO MY GUESTS HAVE TO PAY FOR PARKING?
We are pleased to offer the convenience and safety of over 400 free parking spaces in our well-lit lot, right at our doorstep. This is an amenity unique to New Vintage Place; you will not find this quantity of free parking at any other event center in downtown Grand Rapids…saving you and your guests the costs of paid parking or valet.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENT YOUR VENUE?
CAN WE HAVE A CASH BAR?
We will have the ability to do cash bar options. Please inquire for options.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
CAN YOU CREATE A SMALL, INTIMATE SETTING AT YOUR VENUE?
Although our venue does have two expansive reception halls, we also have a lounge that provides for a smaller, more intimate event.
DO YOU HAVE RESTRICTIONS ON VENDORS OTHER THAN CATERING AND BAR SERVICE?
Feel free to use any licensed vendors. Contact us for a recommended vendors list.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN DESSERT?
You have the freedom to work with which ever bakery you would like when it comes to dessert! Reach out if you would like any recommendations.
ARE TABLE LINENS INCLUDED?
Table linens are not included in the venue site fee but can be arranged through us or through the caterer/an external vendor.
CAN MY DJ USE YOUR SOUND EQUIPMENT?
We recommend that DJs bring in their own equipment.
IS THE AMPHITHEATER & COURTYARD INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL OF THE ENTIRE BUILDING?
The Amphitheater and Courtyard are commonplace areas for the complex and are not exclusively included with the rental of the venue. While we find that it is not used very often by others we can arrange for exclusive use of the Amphitheater with the Complex Association for an additional fee.
WHO CAN WE USE FOR BAR SERVICE?
We have all of our bar in house! This means you will be working with us directly on the bar service. Please inquire for pricing and options.
HOW MUCH IS THE INITIAL DEPOSIT?
A deposit of 50% of the total rental fee is required.
