Can I bring in my own Food and Beverage?
You sure can! Vuka does not provide in house catering, nor are we licensed to serve alcohol so you can bring everything in provided you abide by the rules and regulations of TABC. We also do not have a list of vendors that you have to choose from, you can use whomever you would like!
What is the capacity of the main space?
Vuka can accommodate up to 200 people.
How does parking work?
Can we play music?
You can have music inside only, and per the City of Austin Sound Ordinance this can not be heard above 70 decibels from the street. All DJs have been well within the sound limit and most bands can play under the limit as well.
What AV equipment does Vuka provide?
Vuka has a projector and speakers only. We do not provide any sound equipment or a microphone so anything of that nature will have to be brought in or rented.
How does set up and break down work at Vuka?
When arriving at Vuka, the venue will be set up with our furniture and accessories throughout the space. You can utilize any and all furniture and accessories we have on site for your event and can re-arrange however you would like, but the space would have to be re set at the end of the event. All event set up and break down is up to your full service catering company or your friends/family. We do offer an additional, optional fee that can be added to the rental fee if you would like a Vuka staff member to assist you with this.
Can we bring in our own decorations?
Of course! You can customize Vuka however you would like, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. If using nails, they can not be larger than a tack and you may not use any permanent glue or tape on any surfaces. You are free to use all existing decor that is available on the day of the event as well but any and all decor that is moved will have to be re set at the end of the event (see question above).
Can I add extra time to my rental agreement?
You can add additional time on Saturday and Sunday by the hour for $200 per additional hour provided it does not exceed 10pm.
Can my event go past midnight?
All events at Vuka must end at 10PM and clean up will have to be completed by 11PM.
Are there any hotels nearby?
Vuka is located 1.7 miles from downtown and there are many options in the downtown area including Driskall, Omni, W Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott, Embassy Suites, Radisson, Hampton Inn, Four Seasons, Hyatt, and Holiday Inn. For accommodations that are a little more unique, try Hotel San Jose located a few blocks west of us on South Congress.
I’m ready to book! What’s next?
Securing your date is simple. To reserve your date, we will need the first half of the rental fee along with the contract up front, the second half of the rental fee will be due four (4) weeks prior to the event date. Once you have received the contract and an invoice for the first half of the rental fee, you will have ten (10) days to return those to Vuka to keep your reservation. We will also keep your credit card information on file in case of any property damage, but we do not require a security deposit.
“I stopped by today to checkout this new space. I’m a Realtor and I’m always on the run from one side of Austin to the other.. A coworking space is ideal for me to sit back and get a bit of work done in a fantastic atmosphere. I’ll be coming back for sure.”-Simon Justice
