10 Boston Private Dining Rooms Perfect For a Special Celebration

By

Yes, holiday parties are returning. And while that’s cause for celebration, it might also spike anxiety—if you haven’t gotten around to booking a private venue yet for your special event. With that service in mind, we’ve compiled this list of 10 Boston restaurants and bars with excellent private dining rooms that can host your next holiday shindig, whether that’s an intimate dinner with a bespoke prix-fixe menu or a 100-person paella blowout.

A friendly heads-up: most spots on this list are available for full and/or partial buyouts; and do note that restaurants’ group policies vary — some opt for a set menu, other don’t; some are bookable via Resy, while others encourage you to reach out directly.
