About Events with PARK Restaurant and Bar
A subterranean restaurant/bar with an eclectic variety of seating and dining options - from communal tables and oversized banquettes to casual groupings of leather armchairs and comfortable sofas - PARK encourages groups as small as 12 and as large as 120 to sit, dine, drink and mingle. Guests feel at home in PARK’s rustic-meets-luxe space accented by soft leather couches & armchairs, bookshelves stocked with vintage titles, reclaimed wood tables, and an impressive collection of artwork and photography from the ‘60s and ‘70s. With several distinct private event spaces which can be combined to accommodate larger parties, complete A/V capabilities, and exclusive private food and beverage offerings, PARK is suited to play host to a variety of events. Whether it’s a sophisticated party amongst leather armchairs and a private bar in the Den; an intimate, fireside gathering of friends in the Classroom; or a seated dinner for 30 at the circular booths in the Back Room, entertaining is PARK’s specialty. After selecting the perfect location and atmosphere for your event, we will work with you to develop a custom-designed menu and dedicate ourselves to the details of your dining needs.
For a quiet, intimate dining experience, the Backroom is the perfect place to enjoy a full dinner or cocktails and hors d’oeurves. This room is a completely private space ideal for special occasions and business dinners.

Combining use of our Classroom, Den and half of our bar provides the perfect option for a larger-scale reception where guests can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeurves.

For half buyouts we also offer a privacy curtain and customized bar divider, creating a more exclusive atmosphere for your party.

Our focus will be solely on your event with a full staff dedicated to meeting your needs!
