Can we add on hours to our rental time?
We want this process to be as smooth as possible with no hidden fees, so when you rent Pinewood, you get the whole building for the entire day! (Refer to the hours of operation above) Unfortunately, our hours are set by the city, so we are not able to add on any time to allow your event to go later into the evening. If you want to keep the party going, Sidelines Bar and Grill in Cambridge is a great option for an after party!

Once we finalize details we will send you a contract and invoice so you can put a deposit down to reserve the date. The deposit to hold your date is just $750.
