FAQ’s About Our Venue

In case you missed it on our Instagram story yesterday, we gave you guys the chance to ask us any questions you may have about our space! We get calls and emails every day from people who have questions about Haus 820, so we wanted to share those with you all so you know more about what you get when you host your event here with us! Here’s a list of our most frequently asked questions:


Can I take pictures at Haus 820 if I’m not hosting an event there?

Our Color Wall and the outside of our building is always available for anyone to come take photos at! We love seeing people using our Color Wall for fun pictures with their friends, engagement sessions, or fun wedding portraits. In order to take photos inside the building, you’ll have to call and set up an appointment with our Haus staff so that we can make sure there’s no events taking place inside.


How much do you charge for photo shoots?

We charge $175/hour for photo shoots. If you’re a vendor, contact us about our special rate for styled shoots!

We host all sorts of events here at Haus! We have tons of weddings/receptions, corporate events, styled shoots, galas, markets, community events, birthday parties, charity events, holiday parties and more. Make sure you’re watching our Instagram stories to see live updates of events as they’re being set up and happening! On average we have about 3-4 events per week, it just depends on the time of year, but Saturday is always our busiest day of the week.


Do you double book smaller events in your space?

We prefer not to double book in our space to make sure our clients have the best experience possible on the day of their event!

We work with a variety of incredible rental companies located in the Greater Lakeland area. These contracts are separate to the venue rental agreements, but we can include furniture packages as an option to help simplify the rental services. The venue was designed to truly be a blank space and allow you full control over the design and atmosphere.
