Private Events

Martins West offers a wide range of private event capabilities. Whether it is an elegant reception, a happy hour event, a sit down dinner or a full Buy Out, we handle all of the details of the gathering.

Martins West Gastropub is equipped with a semi-private room which can be configured in many different ways depending on what style of event you are looking to host.  The room is separated from the bar area and kitchen with thick curtains which can be closed for a more private feel, or left open, depending on which you prefer.

We can also use the entire restaurant for full dining or even set it up for any other style of event that you would like to host, casino night, dance floor with DJ or private lounge.

We have created menus for all occasions based on the seasons and assists in selecting wines and cocktails to perfectly complement your menu.  We are also able to provide custom floral arrangements, printed menus and audio services.

All pricing is quoted by food and beverage minimums. Everything purchased while using the space is applied to the food and beverage minimum, and if the minimum is not met, the remainder will be applied to the bill as a “rental fee”.  These prices do not include California State tax and 20% gratuity. Please contact [email protected] for specific date and event pricing.

Semi-Private Room Rentals (Partial)

The semi-private room can be partially reserved for cocktail groups of 25 or fewer, or dinner groups of 20 or fewer with a food and beverage minimum, Monday-Thursday.  If one of these areas is rented, Martins West retains the right to seat other diners/ groups in the area which is not reserved.

Semi-Private Room Rental (Complete)

The semi-private room can be reserved for cocktail parties of up to 75 people, sit down dinner groups from 18-50, and it is perfect for combined cocktail parties followed by dinner.  If the semi-private room is rented, the room will be yours for the entire evening.

Martins West Buy Out (Rental of Entire Restaurant)

Martins West can be yours for a day or evening! This option leaves you the most amount of flexibility and we can accommodate anywhere from 50-120 people for sit down dinners or as many as 250 for a cocktail party. We will work closely with you on customizing a perfect event for you and your friends.

Happy Hour Parties

Happy hour parties for groups of 15 or more can be booked through management.  Please call in advance to hold space for your group.  We do not reserve cocktail tables for groups of less than 15 people.  We do not reserve these spaces without food and beverage minimums, but are thrilled to work with local companies to stay within their budget. We usually are able to reduce the food and beverage minimums by 50% as long as we can have the tables back by 7pm for our dinner rush.

Cocktail Parties

We have a passed appetizer list for groups of 40+ that changes seasonally.  Appetizers are “bite-sized” and are served on a per person basis at 1 and a half appetizer per person.  If there is something in particular that you are looking for, let us know and we can try to customize it for your event.  Please contact [email protected] for menus.

Dinner Menus for Groups of 35 and more

We have created 3 dinner menu options for groups of over 35 to consider.

All groups larger than 30 will be served family style for appetizers unless previously discussed with event coordinator.  Food and beverage minimums and seating options vary depending on the time and day of the week, size of your group and season.

If you would like an email with the current seasonal party menu, please call the restaurant and leave your email address with the hostess along with your name and date of interest.  You may also email our event coordinator directly at: [email protected] .
