Rentals for Cookhouse reservations

If you have an event booked at Cookhouse and would like additional items (items already included with a reservation are listed here), you can browse our collection to rent items, or email us to add them to your existing invoice. We'll have them onsite, clean, and ready (and we'll pre-polish wineglasses) for you at the start of your event.

Rentals for offsite events

You can rent our wares for use outside of Cookhouse, with $49 flat-rate delivery and pickup available to your location in San Francisco (minimum $200), or pick up and drop off at our location in North Beach.  

You may also add the services of Event Assistants who can help unpack and set up your items before your event, serve food & drinks, keep things tidy and organize during your event, and pack up after your event.

HOW this WORKS

By renting from us using our site, you agree to the following terms.

ordering & charges

  • You may order using our website or by calling or emailing us with a list of items to start a quote. If you prefer a quote, 50% of the rental amount will be charged as a Deposit; the Balance will be charged to your card after return of the items.
  • The listed rental charge is for 72 hours from the time it is delivered to your location or picked-up from us until the time it is picked up at your location or dropped off with us. After this, each rental not returned is automatically renewed again for another 72 hours. After 3 renewals, we will consider any unreturned items to be purchased. For shipping (U.S. only), please request a quote for rentals by the week instead of 72 hours.
  • Cancellations within 0-3 days of your event and no-shows will be charged for the full Balance. Booked items may not be postponed to a later date. Ordered products and services, whether you use them or not, will be included on the Final Balance.

Standard of Service

  • We polish wineglasses before packing and they are ready-to-use.  
  • Soft scratches and hard spots may exist on items, but we will not pack broken or defective items.
  • We inspect items prior to packing them. Despite best efforts, there is risk of damage during transport. If an item is damaged prior to our delivery to you, take a picture of it in its original packaging upon discovering it.

Use & Care

  • Wash and dry items. Plates: rinse so that there is no food left on them (no need to sanitize). Glassware: empty and quick-rinse. Drip or wipe dry. It doesn’t need to be perfect. Carefully return them to the cases using any provided linens as padding. Leave the sanitizing and polishing to us.
  • Items missing or returned damaged beyond normal wear & tear will be charged at purchase price. For everyone’s safety, do not pack any broken items.
  • There is no charge for packing equipment and materials unless they are returned damaged or missing.

Transport/Event Assistants

  • For pick-up/drop-off at our location: We'll email you to arrange a time for pickup and dropoff. If not you, let us know the name of the person picking up and dropping off on your behalf.
  • For delivery ($200 order minimum) and pickup: Inside San Francisco County, delivery and pickup is $49 round-trip. Outside of San Francisco County, delivery and pickup is charged at $1 per minute. Time starts when we start driving with a loaded vehicle to when we finish unloading. All items should be packed and stored in an accessible place for pickup to avoid additional charged time.
  • All items should be packed and stored in an accessible place for pick-up to avoid additional charged pick-up time.
  • You may also add the services of one or more Event Assistants who can help unpack and set up your items before your event, serve food & drinks, clean and organize during your event, and pack up after your event. Event Assistants do not cook. Event Assistants are $55-$85 per hour and the minimum for an Event Assistant is 4 hours.
