Stress-Free Holiday Hosting

Did you know because of a late Thanksgiving there are fewer days to book those holiday parties? In fact, this year has the shortest holiday season since 2013. Panicked yet? Here are a few suggestions in the Pike District to host your private or semi-private event.


5240 Randolph Road

Reserve the restaurant for your group of up to 90 people or have your event catered. El Patio can create a menu just right for your holiday party. Best known for their empanadas and traditional Argentinean Barbecue.


12227 Wilkins Avenue

Here’s a change of pace…try hosting your next party in a taproom! 7 Locks Brewery is a great location for a fun, casual, holiday party of up to 100 people. You can have the place to yourself if you meet an hourly minimum guarantee. And you can bring in your own food, wine, and cider.


11830 Grand Park Avenue

You can find the perfect, unique space for your group of 10-200 at City Perch. Choose private areas like the Wine Room where you are literally surrounded by wine or lively spots like the Cocoon Lounge with its funky vine-like decor. Then, grab a box of popcorn and rent the IPIC Cinemas featuring movies like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Frozen 2 and Ford vs Ferrari for a private screening party!


11820 Trade St

This place has a cool vibe with funky, whimsical décor and a great menu to complement it. Book a private dining room area for 14 or a full dining room buyout for 100.


Entertaining? There are so many Pike District catering options. Here are just a few!
