Soldiers & Sailors works with a list of exclusive caterers and other authorized vendors who are trained in the policies and procedures of the museum. All of our vendors hold the proper licensing and meet the standards of insurance set forth by the museum. Please consult our Authorized Vendors prior to booking any vendors under the categories of Catering, Linens (including chair covers, draping and sashes), Equipment (such as tables, chairs and tableware), Audio Visual and Lighting in addition to what Soldiers & Sailors includes in your rental. Please speak to a member of the Soldiers & Sailors sales team to answer vendor related questions.
Soldiers & Sailors is proud to offer complimentary space for service members and organizations to host enlistment, reenlistment, commissioning, promotion, retirement and change of command ceremonies, pending availability of space. Please note that hosting non-ceremony related elements, such as an after party may result in rental fees.
Soldiers & Sailors reserves the right to approve or disapprove any entertainment offered at a special event to ensure that the nature of the gathering is in the best interest of the museum. The name and type of entertainment must be provided to the Rental Department prior to booking your entertainment.
Lighting, Sound and Media Services
Soldiers & Sailors includes a built in sound system as a part of both our auditorium and grand ballroom rental areas. A portable sound system is available for our patio, Gettysburg Room and Joseph A. Dugan, Jr. Hall of Valor. Outside systems cannot be plugged into these systems. Clients are required to contact and utilize our authorized sound and lighting vendors for any additional sound needs.
Soldiers & Sailors will have special-event personnel on-site for event setup and breakdown. Certain special events will require security, including all events serving alcohol. If the client’s entertainment, speakers, VIPs, dignitaries or special guests have their own private security, the Rental Department must be notified. Failure to do so may result in individual(s) being refused admittance to the museum.
The museum does not own or operate the subsurface parking garage or street parking adjacent to its property. The City of Pittsburgh Parking Authority controls the street parking if variances are needed. The garage is operated by the University of Pittsburgh, but is publicly accessible via Bigelow Blvd, the side street to our right. For more information on the parking garage visit here.
