VENDORS

APPROVED VENDORS

Freedom, curated

If you are baking a cake, then vendors are like ingredients.  As such they can make the cake exceptional, or unpalatable.  For your event, you'll likely want the cake to go down easily. Enough analogies.  In the interest of having you happy with the results of your vendor selection, while preserving a good measure of freedom, we’ve curated a large vendor list that should act as your primary filter for both vendor quality and efficiency of planning. Our primary goal is to make your event a positive experience, though we do have a selfish goal.  That is to preserve our reputation as your guests will assume the services of your vendors are performed by Clementine or Ruby (yes, life is unfair). 

 

Vendors at both Clementine and Ruby must be selected from the list of qualified vendors here.  These vendors are competent, familiar with our facilities and policies, and should have all qualifying documentation on file with us.  All vendors must be approved by us at least 30 days before your event.  Vendors who have not been approved will not be allowed onsite the day of the event. 

STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?

If you want to brave it and use a vendor who is not on this list (and they are not a Rental, Lighting, Bartending or Security company, which must come from the list), they may complete an application for consideration to come here.  They must first submit their business contact information,   sign a Vendor Agreement (a liability release and service level agreement), and provide the appropriate insurance.  If received expeditiously and the application is complete and found to be adequate,  we will host a new vendor orientation with the perspective vendor at Clementine.   We will evaluate their abilities and come to a determination on their capabilities.  Clients should understand that approval is not guarantee.  A fee of $50 will be added to your invoice for every new vendor approved for the time to on-board a new vendor.

 

FOR VENDORS

If you're a vendor and would like to be on the approved list, we'd be happy to consider you.  Your first step is to come to Clementine or Ruby as a vendor for one of our clients.  Please don't contact us to get on the list without having visited as we can't approve anyone whom we have not seen operate.  Before you visit for the first time, you will go through the above application process.   If you are not on this list, do not tell a client that you have been to our venues before and are therefore allowed back.  A great vendor appreciates that we screen for legitimacy and capability.
