Group Dining and Catering


Whether you need a table or the whole establishment for your group function, we’ll help you plan a memorable event at the Pastime Bar and Grill. We work closely with organizers to plan every last detail, whether a wedding reception, high school reunion, holiday function or other special occasion.

Starting the first weekend of December, we doll up our establishment with twinkling lights to set a festive mood, making it a fun and photogenic location for a holiday party. Weather permitting, you may wish to include the facilities of our outdoor Alley Bar as a seating and game area. Our entire facility is ADA compliant. If you have special needs, please let us know.

Casual/Buffet Events
For buffet style functions, our kitchen team works hard to make sure food is always fresh and the serving tables constantly replenished to ensure food never runs low.

Formal/Sit-down Events
Your guests may order off the regular Pastime menu, or if you prefer, we can arrange a special price fixe menu tailored to your group. If you want to add in a pre-function period for socializing, we can set up a light menu of canapés or other finger foods either as buffet or passed by servers amongst the guests. For a more formal event, our professional servers will make your guests feel well-tended.

Cocktail Hour Events
Our historic bar makes a one-of-a-kind setting for a private cocktail party. We’ll help you design a menu of tasty appetizers and canapés. We can do the same for beverages if you wish to limit the selection of available drinks.

Meetings and Presentations
If you wish to hold a working lunch meeting at the Pastime, we can assemble a menu that gets you in and out according to whatever time you’ve allotted.

Beverage Logistics
We can do cash bar or food/beverage-inclusive functions to help you budget. Sometimes budgets and thirst don’t go hand-in-hand. To control your drink costs, we can issue script to limit how much your guests will drink or how much you’ll pay before a cash bar takes over.
