Are we allowed to bring outside entertainment?

You can select any vendor you choose for any services such as entertainment, event planning and several others. Floral services for Russo’s On The Bay and Vetro’s rooms are exclusive to our list of Preferred Florists. If you choose a member of our Preferred Vendor Program, they will already be a registered and have insurance on file. If they are not, we request that every outside vendor provide a current liability insurance form and worker’s compensation form where applicable.

Are decorations in theme style events included?

Our Event Concierge, Priscilla Dolce, is always happy to assist guests in developing a plan for themed events through working with our Preferred Vendors to create completely customized theme parties and decorations for everything from retirement parties to sweet sixteen parties.

Does Russo's On The Bay provide centerpieces?

No, Russo’s On The Bay does not provide centerpieces for events. We have an incredible selection of vendors that can create beautiful customized centerpieces working with your color schemes, personal style and budget.

How many people can fit at a table? Can we use larger tables if we need to?

Depending on what room your party is booked in, how many guests you can have per table will vary. We do offer larger tables and several different set-up options to accommodate guests and parties of various sizes. Speak to a banquet sales consultant for more information on set-up options, room sizes, and table choices.

Are there any special introductions into the room?

Our two most fabulous entrances are the glass elevator in the Tivoli Room and the staircase in the Renaissance Room; these grand entrances are specifically for Wedding Couples. Russo’s On The Bay does not have any built-in alternatives to the staircase or glass elevator; however, we are specialists at creating incredible events and can work with our highly talented Preferred Vendors to assist you in creating a customized grand entrance of your own for an additional cost. Ask your banquet consultant for additional information.
