Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Maple Hall?

Maple Hall’s address is 414 S Gay St – We are located on historic Gay Street between Babalu and Downtown Grill & Brewery.

What are your age and I.D. policy?

Maple Hall is an all ages facility until 9:00 pm when we become 21+  unless it is a child with a parent. We ID everyone as a policy and guests must have a valid ID to drink alcoholic beverages or to enter the establishment after 9:00 pm.

The Upstairs at Maple Hall is always 21+ (regardless of parent or guardian).

Where can I park?

Behind our building are two parking garages located on State Street, State Street Garage and the Promenade. Downtown also offers street parking throughout the city. Due to construction on State Street Garage, spots are now limited. We recommend downloading the Parkopedia app or visiting their website to see available spots in real-time. 

What if my group doesn't finish their game before 9 PM, if someone under 21 is present?

Our guests will not be asked to leave the facility as the clock strikes 9:00 pm. However, we will enforce a time limit if a game extends too far beyond 9:00 pm.
