Frequently Asked Questions About Events at the Winery:
Do I need to bring my ID to the winery?
Yes! All guests will be subject to an ID check for any purchases of alcohol. No alcoholic beverages will ever be sold or served to anyone under 21 years of age.
Where do I park when I visit the winery?
CLE Urban Winery does NOT have private parking. Metered public parking is available on Lee Rd and in the large parking lot and garage across the street from the winery behind the Cedar-Lee Theater. There is also a free municipal parking lot on Cedar Rd one block west of Lee Rd, and valet parking stations are available along Lee Rd on Friday and Saturday night ($5 with winery receipt). BE SURE TO BRING QUARTERS FOR THE METERS as winery staff cannot provide change for parking.
How do I make a reservation to hold a party/event at the winery?
We can accommodate groups from 10 up to 100 people for parties and events at the winery. Stop by or call the winery at 216-417-8313 on Monday-Thursday and speak to our Events Manager, Jeremy, to check availability, to complete required paperwork and to pay the reservation fee to secure your reservation. Your party/event is not confirmed until these steps are completed.
How much does it cost to have a party/event at the winery?
During regular business hours, our non-refundable reservation fee is $25, which is paid at the time the reservation is confirmed. Under certain circumstances, private parties/events can be held outside of regular business hours and on Sundays with a reservation fee of $100/hour – a 50% deposit is required when the private reservation is confirmed, and the remainder is due on the day of the event.
Is there a minimum wine purchase required during a party/event?
We do expect that you and your guests purchase our wine during your event as part of your party/event, however, there is no specified minimum wine purchase required. We also expect and greatly appreciate that you and your guests tip our staff for the superior service you will receive.
Are there private areas in the winery for my party/event?
No. Parties and events at the winery are held in the shared, open Tasting Room space. Typically, groups will have reserved “anchor” areas in the back or front of the winery (at winery management discretion). All party/event guests are expected to share the common spaces of the Tasting Room with other winery patrons for parties/events held during regular business hours.
Can we bring in outside food for our party/event?
Yes! You may bring in outside food and non-alcoholic beverages for the event. You may NOT bring in or consume any alcoholic beverages other than our wine purchased at the winery. Food must be held at proper temperatures for service (you may bring chaffing dishes, if needed). The winery will NOT provide paper products, silverware or serving utensils.
Does the winery have tables and chairs for our party/event?
The winery can provide the folding tables and chairs it has available for your party/event. If more are needed, rental furniture may be brought in with permission of winery management. Winery furniture and equipment cannot be moved for a party/event.
Can we bring in decorations for our party/event?
Yes, you may bring in decorations. Balloons MUST be secured to a weight of some sort and removed at the end of the event. Under NO circumstances are glitter, confetti or candles permitted. No decorations may be affixed to winery walls and all decorations must be removed at the end of the event.
Can we sell tickets for our party/event?
Yes, you may sell tickets for their event, if you wish, with prior approval of winery management at the time you confirm your reservation.
Can we make special arrangements for music or entertainment for our party/event?
Special-request music or entertainment may be arranged with prior permission of the winery owner only. Be advised that the winery does not have a sound system so that would need to be provided.
Can children attend parties/events at the winery?
Children may attend winery events with prior permissions from winery management, but no children are permitted to attend events after 6pm unless special circumstances apply. Children must be in the care of a parent or guardian at all times while at the winery.
What happens if we need to cancel or reschedule our party/event?
For events during business hours, kindly contact us at least 48 hours in advance if your plans change. The $25 event fee is non-refundable for cancelled events, but you may reschedule without paying an additional fee. Private events outside of normal business hours must be cancelled (or rescheduled) at least one week in advance in order to receive a return of your 50% deposit, otherwise it is non-refundable.
