Watermark Books & Cafe Meeting Room Rentals

Room Rentals

Watermark Books & Cafe offers two meeting rooms on the lower level for small community groups and book clubs, baby showers and teacher in-service days, board retreats, and planning sessions:  The Autograph Gallery and The Starry Night Room. Catering and beverage service is available for meeting groups, as well as projection systems.

Fees:

There is a $25 fee per hour to rent either of our meeting rooms, paid in advance to reserve the space. You will be given access to the room 15 minutes in advance of your rental. If you need additional time, there may be an additional fee.  

There is a $25.00 fee for rental of a projector and screen.  The Watermark Books & Cafe staff will do all the set up and take down.  

Availability:

We are open from 9-4 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, 9-3 Saturday and Sunday, and 9-7 on Thursday. Room reservations can not be made anytime later than two hours before closing, and groups must be finished by half an hour before closing. 

Make a reservation: 

To reserve space in our meeting room, please fill out the following form and we'll be in contact with you directly. If you have any questions, call Kris at (316) 682-1181, or email her at kris.stephens@watermarkbooks.com. We will send you a copy of our contract to your mailbox within 2 business days. No outside food or drink, nor outside sales are permitted (we can provide catering, and groups are encouraged to order right off our menu. We'll bring the food down to you).

Each person attending can order a day in advance and we will take payment and have your order delivered to the room upon arrival of the group.  This is an efficient and speedy way to get food in a timely manner. No lines, no waiting to pay, just delicious food right away.  

Our Meeting Rooms: 

The Author Autograph Gallery

This space features hundreds of autographs and drawings by authors and illustrators who have visited Wichita and Watermark Books & Cafe over the years.  It seats up to 18 comfortably and is available for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (on Thursdays; the store closes at 4 on the weekdays and therefore the rooms must be open at 3:30 pm. On weekends, 2:30 pm). Breakfast trays, soup and sandwich trays, or even casserole and salad buffets work well in this space. A beverage spread can include coffee, tea, and water. And a dessert tray wraps up the event nicely. Because we have a restaurant, outside food cannot be brought in. Restrooms are available on the first level. 

The Starry Night Room--currently under remodel

The Starry Night Room is named for a mural of the iconic painting by Van Gogh. There is room for 24 seated guests or 35 for auditorium seating. It is available for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (on Thursdays; the store closes at 4 on the weekdays and therefore the rooms must be open at 3:30 pm. On weekends, 2:30 pm). Breakfast trays, soup and sandwich trays, or even casserole and salad buffets work well in this space. A beverage spread can include coffee, tea, and water. And a dessert tray wraps up the event nicely. Because we have a restaurant, outside food cannot be brought in.  There is a restroom available on the lower level for use by attendees.
