Private Parties Buffalo NY

Around the Cocktail Bar

We will rope off a section of the bar to accommodate your group of 180 or below. We can set up food right there. You can use a bar package, an open tab, or a cash bar. There is a minimum cost of $1,000 to keep the event private. It is a great option for birthday celebrations and other milestone events. We have a variety of options for you to choose from at our cocktail bar. Please call us if you want to have a private party.
