Event Spaces

Main Dining Room

This cozy space is reminiscent of the boozy and electric tapas bars one would find tucked away in the streets of Spain. The room is filled with Spanish-inspired artwork, bottled vintners, pendant lamps and hanging charcuterie boards that surround a bustling and glowing open kitchen.



Front Nook

This semi-private space is tucked away in our main dining room. This intimate alcove is perfect for smaller groups and events.



Heated Veranda

The covered roof, electric heaters, and warm lighting transform the al fresco nook into a cozy cafe fit for all weather.
