Please note that the calendar online is not always up to date. Best to call and ask!


We recommend a buffet-style, informal dinner for receptions. Otherwise, we recommend trying a mixture of formal seating and high tables.

We have a comfortable seating for up to 50 guests. Sometimes parties can squeeze in a few more seats, with a max capacity of 60 when using high-top tables. Please note that more than 50 guests will require some creativity!

  • 6 five-foot round tables (seats 8 guests each) allowing for chairs and passage.
  • 3 high-top (3-4 person) tables with bar stools.

After dinner, feel free to break down a couple of tables so people have room to dance and mingle.

Indoor and Outdoor Sound

The Courtyard has indoor and outdoor speakers – just connect your device via Bluetooth. 

  • Outdoor Live music must end by 9:30 pm (Sat 10 PM) due to the neighborhood noise ordinance.
  • Outdoor speakers can play later than that at conversation volume only.
  • DJ’s allowed upon approval, but no subwoofers.
