Bistro Menil’s private room features large windows overlooking our patio, creating a bright and airy feeling during the day and an intimate ambiance at night. The room can be closed off via pocket door for a completely private experience.

A pine-covered ceiling and white walls are complemented with a large, soft “cloud” textile installation by French designers, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Providing a natural and warming influence, six handmade walnut topped tables can be configured to best suit your event needs. Seating 30 guests for a sit-down meal or up to 50 for a stand-up cocktail event, our cozy but flexible space has hosted wedding receptions, baby showers, family gatherings as well as an array of art and business events.
