Q: I would like to special order a beverage that Orchestra Hall doesn’t carry, how would I do so?
A: Orchestra Hall would be happy to help you special order a beverage that we do not normally have in our inventory. Any special order will be subject to a $100 special order administrative fee. Actual cost of the special order will be determined at the time of the order, based on price, availability, and quantity ordered. The rental client will be responsible for pre-paying for the entire special order, regardless of the amount consumed. Any product not consumed will become the property of Orchestra Hall, and may not be transferred to the rental client for any reason. If you are interested in special ordering something, please contact the Rental Manager for details.
