One hour rental minimum. 50% non-refundable deposit required at least 3 weeks in advance to guarantee the date. Payment via cash or credit card is acceptable.

*Higher because we can't have our regularly scheduled shows. If you can adjust the start / end time to allow us to have a show or two, we will discount this rate accordingly.

We have a fridge stocked with healthy pre-made sandwiches, wraps, bistro boxes and snack packs plus lots of delicious treats from the Queens bakery This Chick Bakes.

If you want to have it catered, orders *must* come through Q.E.D. We work with three local caterers. Give us a headcount and they will quote you a price for your approval.

* Sorriso's in Astoria. Piping hot, delicious trays of food plus sandwich and salad options. No delivery so you must pick up yourself or there is an extra $20 delivery fee. Click here for menu

* Bimmy’s in Long Island City. They’re great for platters of sandwiches, salads and cold dishes, variety platters of veggies, pastries, sandwiches, bagels and more. Click here for menu. 

* Andrew & Franks in Astoria. They’re terrific for sandwiches, salads and hot foods (lasagna, chicken fingers, meatballs, etc.). Not available on Sundays. Click here for menu.

* Michael & Angelo's in Astoria. They make great pizza and other hot italian dishes and salads. Click here for menu available

You're welcome to choose your own caterer and bring in the outside food for a $100 fee.

If you want to bring in cake or desserts, there is no charge for that. No ice cream cakes are allowed unless you are prepared to eat them immediately (we don't have the freezer space) and bring your own knife. 

We offer beer & wine, coffee and teas and lots of yummy non-alcoholic drinks. You can have a cash bar (our prices are very affordable at $4 - $7 beers, $7 wine and draught pitchers and wine bottles available, too). Click here for our menu.

For an open bar, we can run a tab. If you want to make sure you don't spend too much at the bar, we can limit it to certain drinks and/or cap it at whatever price you're comfortable with then make it cash bar thereafter. We can also order certain beers to suit your taste*.

*Custom beer selection requires one week advance notice and pre-payment of the cost of beer.

Since we're a performance space, we have a very nice sound system and easy tech set up to play your favorite music, plus three microphones. We also have the ability to stream on our TVs if you want to play a video or slideshow. If you have tech requests beyond simple music / playlist and a PowerPoint or slideshow, you might need a dedicated tech person. QED techs are paid $20 an hour, or you can bring your own with a scheduled tech rehearsal. 

*Tech requests MUST be pre-approved and tested at least 48 hours in advance. 

You are responsible for your own tablecloths and decorations.

We have plenty of tables and chairs.

We have 14 square tables about 30" square and three 2x4 ft tables we use for buffet service.

Nothing can be hung on the walls with anything other than tape. Please factor in the time you need to set up and break down your decorations when requesting a time for your party.
