This subterranean gem accommodates up to 250 guests and is perfect for those looking to host a gathering with a touch of mystique. Its rich and enigmatic ambiance sets the stage for an event like no other. Whether it's a birthday bash, a milestone celebration, or a corporate mixer, 'The Rabbit Hole' is where you'll find the perfect blend of nostalgia and luxury.

The Main Floor - Industrial Meets Subtle Glamour

Our main floor, which can host up to 250 guests, is the heart of our cocktail bar, and it's where the magic happens for our business daily. Availability for private events differs for The Main Floor, due to the fact that it is a working restaurant. Reservations are unavailable Thursday-Saturday, however, if you desire to rent the entire building, we're more than happy to accommodate on those weekend dates. Our dedicated team will work with you to create a customized experience that reflects your vision, ensuring that your event is truly one-of-a-kind.
