Rehearsal Dinner Coconut Grove Area... need help

adri3387 Jan 3, 2011 09:41 AM

I am trying to help out my Aunt (her son is getting married) out. She is looking for a place to have a rehearsal dinner for around 30 people in the Coconut Grove area. Something with a private room maybe...? The wedding is at the vizcaya so I guess it is going to be a pretty fancy pants wedding. Any thoughts or info would be wonderful!

      You should also consider Bizcaya at the Ritz.

        Calamari is probably your best bet. Its nice, has good food, and has the space to comfortably hold 30 guests. unfortunately, most places in the grove are on the small side. I imagine thats part of the charm.

          The attached wine bar, la Bottega, has a cool wine cave for private dining. (Calamari may serve food there too)

          Gibraltar at Grove Isle Hotel may work too

            La Bottega is part of Calamari, but you could see about holding it in that space as well.
