The holidays are upon us which means we’ll all be busy with parties, if we aren’t already! Office parties, get togethers with friends, family reunions – celebrations with the many people that we share our lives with. During this busy time, many party planners are beginning to think about catering and party hosting options. Before you get too stressed out by Pinterest party plans, we have some ideas for you! We’ll be happy to take the weight off your shoulders and impress your boss, your coworkers, your in-laws, or your friends. What better way to spend the holidays than with great people, delicious food, and no clean up?

There are a few things we can do for you at Next Door Food and Drink…


Small Get Togethers

For groups of 16-20 we have our raised platform towards the back of the restaurant that can be semi-private with the curtains pulled. Slightly smaller groups that are under 12 people can be accommodated in our private dining room or in our banquette area which fits up to 16. Most of these event sections are available to book from 4:30p.m.-7:00p.m. or 7:30p.m.-10:00p.m.


Lively Lounge

If your group is larger, our lounge area is also available for your special evening. This area can accommodate up to 32 people for a seated dinner or up to 40 for a more casual, social tapas event. This area has more flexibility in time availability for a weekday or weeknight (Sunday-Thursday) event.


Boisterous Bashes

Next Door Food & Drink also has a 2nd floor banquet area! This area seats up to 120 people. It’s part of the Rialto Theater Center which features floor to ceiling windows, is fully wired with a screen, projector, and audio system, and has an open modern feel. It is available for a rental fee.
