For example, if you were interested in renting the room for 2 hours, we would charge $75/hr (the $50 deposit will go towards that payment). The total payment would be $150 for those 2 hours.
If after the 2 hours you’ve only spent $100, you will still be required to pay $150, but a Rao’s gift card will be given to you with the difference ($50).
If, after the 2 hours, you spend over $150, then you would be charged the total bill. Servers and Baristas are additional services.
