Alcohol is allowed pending the approval of a permit through the Lakewood Link Recreation Center. The permit fee is $150 for a three-hour block of time for groups of 50 or larger or $75 for three hours for groups smaller than 50. The permit will allow beer, wine and champagne to be served. Additional hours can be purchased for $50/hour for groups 50 or larger and $25/hour for groups smaller than 50. We require a $500 deposit for rentals where alcohol will be served. This money can be refunded if no damage is identified in the building. Serving of alcohol must end one hour prior to the end of the rental and will be monitored by the rental group.

All refunds and room rental deposits will be made in the form of a check issued by the city of Lakewood. Two weeks notice is required on all rentals.
