The health and safety of our guests and our employees are our top priority. West48 is following all CDC recommendations for event planning, and we encourage our clients to follow health and safety precautions as well. We have implemented a number of procedures and practices in order to make sure West48 is a safe and sanitary place to hold your next event.

Extra Safety Measures and Precautions

Tours are available via appointment only. No walk-in tours will be allowed. At this time, we ask that you wear a mask for your tour and limit the number of people in your tour group to two. A 6-foot distance will be maintained at all times. Contact us to schedule a tour of West48 event space.

Social Distancing

We have plenty of space to make sure all social distancing guidelines can be followed at West48. We will operate at 50% max-capacity, or at a capacity that allows for proper social distancing for your meeting, based on set-up and at the discretion of our event coordinator.

Sanitizing Procedures

All surfaces will be wiped down with sanitizing spray before and after every event, and West48 Event Staff will be responsible for sanitizing high-touch surfaces on a regular basis. Depending on the number of people attending an event, we may sanitize surfaces during your event as well.

Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the space for all attendees. We ask that all guests sanitize their hands regularly, especially when touching items in a common space, such as the refrigerator, kitchen drawers, etc.

Food and Beverage Guidelines

Paper products will be provided for coffee and water. We ask that for the safety of you and others, that you wash or sanitize your hands before using these items. Wipes will also be available to use to wipe down coffee and water dispensers after each use.

Any food catered in must be served in individual containers put together by the caterer. No buffets or self-serve/open container food or drinks will be allowed.

West48 will still provide the beverage package with coffee, water, and drinks in the refrigerator. We ask that each attendee sanitize their hands before and after self-serving any beverages from the refrigerator, water cooler, or coffee carafe.

Additional Policies to Note

The Event Coordinator will work with you to make sure your expectation for the layout is executed correctly. In case of last minute changes, the event coordinator will re-clean all surfaces..
