Private parties

The Essex Restaurant and Bar is the perfect place for your special event. The ambient, sexy dining room in Hearth at The Essex is ideal for both intimate celebrations or a business gathering.

At The Essex, we have many options for seating and privacy, including our Chefs Corner, dining room with fireplace, and availability for partial or full buyout including receptions and seated events. It’s the ideal place to host everything from a rehearsal dinner to a cocktail party. Let us tailor your needs to make your event truly memorable.


Our standard banquite package includes room rental, food and alcohol in varying packages. There are increased charges for types of service, open bar, and live music. There are also increased charges for a buy out (having the restaurant to yourselves), as well as varying charges based on the time of year, demand, and the time of day or night of the week. 

Your evening may begin with an open premium-liquor bar and cocktail reception with a slection of passed hors d' oeuvres. After the coctail hour you and your guests may sit down to a three-course dinner, with choices in each course from our party menu. House red and white wines are offered during the meal and your dinner will conclude with your choice of dessert served with coffee or tea.
