If I book the Casino, how many hours can I have for my event?
We allow a 5 hour window for your event, and if you hold your wedding ceremony here, we allow an additional hour. We also give you approximately 5 hours prior to your event to decorate and/or use our "Brides Room" to prepare for your special day. You have the option to go overtime for an additional fee. Your event must conclude by 1AM latest with all vendors out by 2AM to comply with San Clemente city code.
Can I use my own vendors?
Food vendors for your event must be chosen from our exclusive and preferred caterer list in the interest of preserving our historical building and ensuring the quality of the event. We can also offer suggestions for lodging, entertainment, rentals, florists, photographers and other services that can be used at your discretion from our "Friends of the Casino" vendor list. Many of these vendors offer discounts for patrons of the Casino.
Are there any other fees?
