Hailey S. booked an event for 30 people
This is a great venue with multiple rooms, we booked the smaller upstairs one and it was great, way more private than I anticipated. The catering food was AMAZING I wish they had the chicken and pork on the regular menu I would eat there all the time. Highly recommend!
Danielle M. booked a birthday dinner for 15 people
The service people were very attentive, but the whole logistics of it wasn't too great. The linen that was charged $30 was literally there for the entire lifespan of the bar (nothing unique about it so a total unnecessary cost) then I brought a cake and was charged $30 for outside food where it wasn't highlighted in the policy. I just wish things could have been simpler. Unfortunately never doing anything here nor thru peerspace.

This was a great venue! Everyone was great to work with, friendly, professional and our party went off flawlessly. Food was great, our bartender, Erica was awesome and our karaoke DJ, Ivan was top-notch! Thanks to Madeline, who was always available to answer my questions and assist me. My husband’s 50th Birthday party was a blast!! We love The Rendezvous!!
Cj T. booked a 30th birthday party for 50 people
Madeline was very responsive and easy to work with. She answered all my emails promptly and made sure everything was taken care of. The day of the venue went smoothly. The tech was helpful in showing how the equipment worked and setting me up on surge protectors because of the storm. My bartender Erica (spelling?) was amazing and patient with my guests! Would book again in a heartbeat!
Sarah H. booked a concert for 50 people
This was the perfect venue for my a cappella group's launch of a new single! Matt was a fantastic sound tech who made us sound great and Madeline and the other staff were so accommodating and excellent hosts!! We would absolutely do another show here at the Rendezvous!!
Ron W. booked an event for 50 people
We reserved the Grotto for my 50th birthday party, with about 30 attendees. The space was in the bottom of an old bar and theater and had the feel of a 1920s speakeasy. The staff was incredibly helpful and provided excellent service. The staff was very proactive working with me to decide on catering and how best to host the bar. The space has a small stage where a small band could play but we just brought in a playlist on my phone and that worked great. I heard over and over again from my friends about how good the food was, especially the fried chicken and biscuits. The crabcakes were also delicious. The bartender was very good and the margaritas were very popular. They had an excellent selection of both well drinks and top shelf liquor options. I couldn’t be happier with how my party turned out.
