  1. How do I arrange a birthday party?
    Please contact Katie at 212–749–8717 or email her at Party times fill up quickly, so please book as early as possible.
  2. At what age is a child counted as part of the birthday package?
    Any child that participates in the age appropriate activity will be counted. All siblings that do not fall into the age bracket activity are welcome into the gymnasium but must watch on the side. This is to benefit the activity for the birthday guests as well as minimize safety hazards. They will not be counted in the guest list (e.g. an 18–month–old at a 3–year–old birthday party will not be counted but must watch with a caretaker on the side).
  3. Do you require a deposit?
    A deposit of $300 confirms a party reservation.
  4. What is your cancellation policy for Birthday Parties?
    Once a birthday party has been confirmed, the deposit is non–refundable.
  5. What if I have to change the date?
    There is a $100 fee to change the date of any birthday party once it is confirmed. Rescheduling will depend on availability.
  6. What if I could rent the space from you and we provide the entertainment?
    We do not provide this service at this time.


The schedule for available party times changes from one semester to the other. Parties are on Sundays from 10am–5pm.
