Since our opening, we’ve had the amazing opportunity to host a number of private events at CRAFT, and it’s one of the things we love most. It keeps us on our toes and allows us to flex our creative muscles—we really enjoy creating one-of-a-kind menus and CRAFTing up brand new dishes for each event we host. Today, then, we wanted to give you more of an idea of what hosting your private event at CRAFT entails. Read on below, and reach out to us if you have any questions at all.
We're people people—it’s why we founded CRAFT in the first place. So, from the moment you contact us about your private event to the moment it’s wrapped, Chef/Owner Jaret Blinn is there to guide you along the way—helping you create the perfect menu and ambiance for your event. We’ll even create a custom CRAFTkitchen Snapchat Geofilter for your event and bring in custom florals from our friends at Flora Couture.
One of the things we’re most proud of at CRAFT is our commitment to supporting all-things local. So, when you book an event with us, you can be sure you’re supporting everyone from local farmers to florists to breweries. That big, beautiful wood table in our Private Dining Room, for example? It was hand crafted by local carpenter Alex Evans. The succulents on our tables? Hand assembled by local florist Michelle Howard. The beer you and your friends will enjoy at your event? Straight from Crafthaus and Big Dog’s Brewing. So, hosting an event at CRAFT is a great way to spread local love in our beautiful community.
CRAFTing a Custom Menu:
Working with you to CRAFT super unique menu items that your guests will love is our favorite part of any event. Straying from our everyday menu gives us a chance to work with unique produce (like dragonfruit, for example) and creative ingredients. We can even put together some really beautiful platters and charcuterie plates if that’s something you’re looking for. It all comes down to personalizing plates to reflect exactly what it is you need in a private event.
During our regular business hours, we serve brunch, lunch and pastry-case treats. But, private events allow us to dabble in the dinner arena—and that’s something we get pretty darn excited about. We’ve had a ton of fun developing super unique, creative dinner menus for a number of private events. We’ve done everything from seared scallops to roasted micro veggies to black truffle profiteroles, and, we have to admit, we kind of love flexing our late-night-menu muscles every now and then.
Overall, private events at CRAFT are such a creative and collective effort. We truly enjoy working one-on-one with you to create the perfect event for you and your guests, and we’re honored to host it all in a space that means so much to us.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all. We can’t wait to hear from you! Let’s get this (private) party started.
