PRIVATE EVENTS IN “THE PARLOR”

The Parlor was created as an oasis for beer enthusiasts. Designed with a speakeasy format in mind, the Parlor is warm, inviting, and begs you to cozy up to the fireplace. The Parlor is available for private event bookings at certain times of the year.

  • Completely private space, separate from the main dining area
  • Brick-lined fireplace warms the room during the cooler months
  • Accommodates up to 70 guests for a cocktail party
  • Sound system can be controlled separately to cater to guests’ musical preferences
  • The Parlor is a below ground, basement space, and is accessible only from the staircase in the restaurant’s main entrance area.

Although often requested, our outdoor Beer Garden space is not available for private events. Mother nature makes it far too difficult for our staff to plan for outdoor private events that are booked in advance.


The Parlor is available for luncheon and evening gatherings. For evening cocktail and dinner events, we offer partial evening rentals and full evening rentals which are priced accordingly. We require 1 week notice to book private events.

The Parlor is a subterranean space accessible by stairs only. If your party requires elevator access, we suggest booking a private room at our sister restaurants Pascolo Ristorante and Guild Tavern.

Maximum guest counts: 70 person for Cocktail-style events. 36 guests for sit down lunch and dinner events.
