BIRTHDAY PARTY POLICIES

The client consents and agrees that Lakeside management may make video and/or audio recordings of and/or otherwise film, photograph or memorialize some or all of participant’s participation in events and activities, and grants Lakeside management the right to use, copy, and disseminate participant’s image for promoting the LeFrak Center at Lakeside facility or its related activities.

 

The party host (client) shall be responsible for any and all damages and losses to the Lakeside premises, Lakeside employees, and/or Lakeside guests caused by the client, a client guest, or attendees of the client’s event.

 

All guests are expected to comply with the rules and regulations posted on site. Parents/guardians are responsible for supervising children at birthday parties.

 

Cancellations and/or date changes must be made at least 72 hours (3 business days) in advance and are subject to availability, otherwise full price will be charged. No credits or refunds are permitted.

 

Event times will not be extended due to lateness. The full price of the event will be charged regardless of guest or client arrival time. A $50 per fifteen (15) minute fee will be charged if client occupies space longer than permitted.

 

One (1) chaperone per five (5) kids is required for all birthday parties.

 

The client and event guests will have access to their designated private party room 15 minutes prior to the time period designated on their contract. Time extensions must be requested and approved a minimum of 72 hours (3 business days) prior to the event and are subject to availability.

 

The signed contract represents the minimum guarantee attendance. If attendance falls below the guaranteed number, the client will be charged for the guarantee. If attendance surpasses the guaranteed number, the client will be charged accordingly upon completion of the event. The client has up to 72 hours (3 business days) prior to the event to make any additions to the final head count/guarantee.

 

No outside food or beverages are permitted inside Lakeside Party Rooms or Bluestone Café areas (with the exception of birthday cakes) unless permission is expressly granted in writing in advance of the event by Lakeside management. If bringing an ice cream cake, the client must notify the party coordinator at least 72 hours (3 business days) before the event to ensure the proper storage space.

 

All food orders must be placed a minimum of one week (7 business days) in advance of the date of the party.

 

A maximum of 30 guests can be accommodated in each party room. The breakdown would include: 25 seats for children along with 5 seats for adults in each room.  If you need additional seating or space, another room must be reserved.

 

Final guest count and additional charges must be reconciled at the completion of the party with the party coordinator via a signed agreement. Final fees (if applicable) will be charged to the credit card on file for the event booking.

 

Each child between the ages of 3–16 occupying the party room during the event will be counted as a party guest on final event payment reconciliation, regardless of event participation. Guest fees will not be assessed for children aged two and younger unless the child participates in the associated activities.

 

The client (party host) must finalize guest count and pay any remaining event balance a minimum of 72 hours (3 business days) prior to the event with a signed credit card authorization form.

 

NYC sales tax (8.875%) and an administrative fee (20%) will be charged to you based on all services shown in the event contract.

 

Dates may be “held” without a fee for up to 48 hours; afterward, a non-refundable deposit of $200 must be made on a credit card (American Express, Visa, or MasterCard) to reserve the date and time.

 

Birthday parties require a 10 child minimum.

 

All guests assume full responsibility for any lost, stolen, or damaged property, risk of injury, or death while participating in any activity at The Lefrak Center and all related facilities and surrounding areas.

 

The Lefrak Center reserves the right to reschedule or refund events due to unforeseen conditions and at the discretion of management.”
