Private Events at Jalopy Tavern

The Jalopy Tavern would love to host your party, be it a small gathering of friends, a birthday party, wedding or film shoot. Here we present some guidelines to help you plan your event; please contact us to discuss tailoring the space to create your perfect celebration.

Rental Options

We have a wonderful outdoor seating area, perfect for a sunny day or warm evening party. The space can be yours exclusively, if you chose to rent the backyard. You can simply rent the space, and have your guests order from the bartender, you can hire your own waitress, and you can either bring in your own food or have it catered by our kitchen.

For a larger or winter event, one can rent out the entire tavern, and have the space reserved for you and your guests. You can work with the Jalopy Tavern staff to create your drink and food selections, to fit your tastes and budget. We can provide options including open bar, open well bar or cash bar for private events.


At the Jalopy Tavern, we feel you shouldn't have to choose only from pre-planned packaged menus. We specialize in customizing our menus and services to meet our client’s preferences and budget requirements. This sample catering menu gives you an idea of the delicious meals we can craft for your special event.
