We held a private event at 1861 that turned out to be incredible! Ashley was able to provide a hand crafted menu unique for our event that included several of 1861’s staple appetizers and a buffet meal, in addition to an open bar. The food was beyond delicious and the drinks were fantastic (as they always are)! I truly did not have to bring/provide much decor as the restaurant has a very eclectic speakeasy feel that is warm and welcoming. For the private event, we were able to have the restaurant all to ourselves; There was plenty of room around the bar and throughout the restaurant for eating, drinking, relaxing, and live entertainment. Ashley, the food, the drinks, and the service, far exceeded our expectations and impressed all of our guests. I highly recommend 1861 for your next private event!!!!!
