Sunset Hill Community Association


The Sunset Hill Community Clubhouse was constructed in 1929 and renovated in 1999. When it is not being used for Sunset Hill Community Association (SHCA) events, the facility is available for rent. The rental income supports programs, events and other services of the SHCA. The building has two floors, each comprising a large hall with fireplace, a kitchen and two restrooms. The Upper Hall has a piano and stage with curtains and professional lighting. Both halls and the lower restrooms are wheelchair accessible.

About the PNA/SHCA Partnership


Since 2012, the PNA manages rental services for the historic SHCA clubhouse in Ballard (3003 NW 66th). In the role of rental manager, PNA will support and enhance SHCA's ability to make profitable use of the building, so that SHCA can continue to maintain the clubhouse and to function as a community-focused hub. Because PNA and SHCA are both nonprofit organizations with similar missions to connect neighbors and foster community, this partnership is a great fit for both organizations.

SERVING ALCOHOL

Alcohol consumption is permitted inside the building as long as the appropriate Banquet Permit is obtained from a Washington State Liquor Store. Events where alcohol will be sold require a specific type of permit. Renters must abide by SHCA contractual requirements and State law. Alcohol is not allowed outside the building under any circumstances.

 

      

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 


 

Which Hall do you recommend?


If you have a large party, reception or event, or any activity that would dominate the hall (music and dancing) we require that you rent both floors. The lower hall can serve as an entry, coat check, food preparation, staging or supervised children’s play space.

 

Please note that though the fire capacity of the building as listed as 225, large events should be no larger than 150 guests, to allow room for music, dancing and food service.

 

For meetings or classes featuring a presentation to a large group of people, the Upper Hall is ideal.

 

The cozier Lower Hall is comfortable for smaller gatherings, group meetings, and workshops.

 

We want our facility to be the right fit for your event, so it is important to discuss the details of your plans with the manager.

 


 

Is music allowed? What sound control do you require?


Live and recorded music is permitted, with the exception of amplified bands. Please keep in mind that we are in a residential neighborhood, and we require renters to keep music and noise to a low volume, in accordance with Seattle’s noise ordinance for residential zones.

 

Activities must remain indoors – use of the outside area is subject to prior arrangement and is only permitted during summer. Doors need to stay closed to keep music or loud sounds from disturbing our neighbors.

 


 

How late may we stay in the building?


There is a strict 10:00 pm cut-off time for music (9:00pm weeknights). All post-event clean up must be completed and the building vacated by 11:00 pm (10:00 pm weeknights).

 


 

Do you allow alcohol?


Alcohol consumption is permitted inside the building as long as the appropriate Banquet Permit is obtained from a Washington State Liquor Store. Events where alcohol will be sold require a specific type of permit. Renters must abide by SHCA contractual requirements and State law. Alcohol is not allowed outside the building under any circumstances.

 


 

What is the catering policy?


Renters are welcome to prepare food, have a potluck or use an outside caterer. You may rent the kitchen on each floor. Please keep in mind that these are not commercial kitchens, so are not suitable for cooking an entire meal for a large group of people.

 


 

What about parking?


The driveway can accommodate two cars and adequate street parking is available on 30thAvenue NW and adjacent streets. There is a marked 30-minute Load Zone in front of our building, on 66th Street. We ask that guests be careful not to block neighbors’ driveways.

 


 

What about decorations?


Decorations must be free-standing. Please check with the building manager if you have any questions. Candles are not allowed.

 


 

Is there a damage deposit?


We require a $300 security deposit. We ensure that the building and grounds are clean and ready for all events, and we ask that you leave it as you find it. The security deposit will be returned after your event, when the building manager confirms that all contractual obligations have been met.

 


 

Why do I need to clean up?


As a community association, our goal is to keep our rates affordable so that everyone may enjoy our facility. Cleaning up and returning all furniture to its place ensures that our rates remain low by helping to limit our custodial costs. Please let us know if the facility was not clean upon your arrival.

 


 

What is an Event Manager?


All events will be staffed by an Event Manager who can assist with finding furniture, cleaning supplies, lights, etc., and troubleshoot any problems with the facility. The Event Manager is not a custodian and is not there to clean up after an event. Cleaning is the responsibility of the renter.

 

Meetings, workshops and classes are assumed not to require an Event Manager.
