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?
Yes, and those are:
Security: We require Casino security guards. 2 guards per first 75 guests, payable at $30/hour per guard.
How can I reserve a date?
We are happy to hold a date for you temporarily. Once your contract is signed and 50% deposit has been received, your date will be secured.
Where is parking?
There is ample public parking ($1.50/hour) across the street and around the Casino property. Before 9am and after 10pm parking is free. We can also accommodate the purchase of daily passes from the City with advance notice.
Do I need a wedding coordinator?
Yes, someone needs to be in charge of coordinating your wedding or event. Mostly so that you can relax!) This person must be a professional planner or coordinator, not just a friend or family member.
Can I do a styled photo shoot at The Casino?
Yes, we do allow for styled shoots at our venue if we feel that work quality and aesthetics match our brand. Please reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details.
