Frequently Asked Questions

What are the rental rates and deposit?
You can see our current rental rates here.
What are the rental policies?
You can read our full rental policies here.
Is my date available?
The easiest and fastest way to find out if your date is available is to email assistant@lathrupvillage.org or recreation@lathrupvillage.org.  You may also call (248) 557-2400 ext. 222 and leave a voicemail.  Please be aware Saturdays between April and August can book up to a year in advance.
Who can rent the Community Room?
Anyone.  Both residents and non-residents are welcome to rent the space.
Who qualifies as a resident?
Residents live within the boundaries of the City of Lathrup Village.  Southfield residents do not qualify.  Having a zip code of 48076 or being part of the Southfield Public School District also does not necessarily mean you are a Lathrup Village resident.  When in doubt, check where you pay your taxes and water bill.
What types of occasions can be hosted in the Community Room?
Baby showers, bridal showers and graduation parties/open houses are the most common events we host.  We also welcome repasts.  We host a few weddings each year although we are not a dedicated wedding venue.  The space is primarily used for hosting city events and meetings as well as meetings for government partners.  We are not able to host children's parties including Sweet 16's.
What is included in the rental?
We provide tables and chairs and will set them up and tear them down according to the layout you provide us.  Our tables are 60" rounds, 6' rectangle and 8' rectangle.  We ask only that you take with you any and all decorations that you brought in.  We handle the trash.  We do not provide any linens.
Do you have a kitchen?
Yes, we have a commercial kitchen which can be rented with the Community Room.  The kitchen is not available for stand-alone rentals at this time.  Food may not be cooked from scratch in our kitchen.  Food may be prepped, heated or refrigerated. The kitchen was renovated in 2020.
Can we serve alcohol?
Yes, except for graduation parties/open houses.  To serve alcohol, the host must sign our alcohol agreement and waiver.  
What is the capacity?
Pre-covid, our Community Room could seat 150 people at 15 tables of 10 people each.  To do that, we put the food tables in the hall and we could not have the dance floor space.  Seating for 120 was more comfortable. During the pandemic, our capacity will vary.  Please see the top of the page for the most up-to-date information.
