Private Events:

Make Westing is available for a wide variety of private functions. We offer catering services (see below), and we do have a semi-private space that we can block off for smaller groups - best for sizes between 20 and 30 or as a base for larger groups - though we do not take table reservations. The rate for the semi-private space ranges from $100 an hour Sunday through Wednesday, $150 an hour on Thursdays and $200 on Saturdays (only until 10pm). We do not block the space off on Fridays. We section the space (towards the back of the bar) from the main bar with stanchions and the area includes three high-top tables as well as a banquett and the back bar. 

The only other area of Make Westing that we provide reservations for are the bocce courts. The courts are first come, first serve and are free. When there are others waiting, each group may play one game to seven and then give up the court to the next group in line. However, if you would like to rent the bocce courts, we do so at $50 per hour, per court, though we only rent one at a time so we can have the other open to the general public. 

Generally, for parties we charge $15 per person, per hour for an open bar and $11 per person, per hour for wine and beer only, though we can/do offer open tabs (at regular, non-happy-hour pricing) or drink ticket options - usually either $5 and $8 a ticket depending on what level of beer or liquor you're looking to provide. For all liquor and catering packages we add 18% gratuity.

Finally, complete buyouts are available, but the costs vary dramtically based on time of day, day of week, time of year, length and complexity of the event, number of people, etc. Please contact us for more information.

Throwing an event at Make Westing can be as simple or as complicated as a group wants as we will adjust/tailor events based on a particular groups needs/budget i.e. groups can pick and choose between drink packages, spacing options, etc. We have a 72 hour cancellation policy for the bocce courts and the back rental space. Once a catering order has been placed, we cannot cancel the order. Due to the nature of our liquor license, no one under 21 is allowed. 

Please email or call our General Manager, Soterios at 518-860-0741 or for more information or to make a reservation. Soterios is off on Mondays and Tuesdays so if you call during that time he will not be able to get back to you until Wednesday. 

Update: If your event is offsite, Make Westing now offers liquor catering to go (no food options as of yet - liquor only). Make Westing Boutique Beverage Catering is a fully licensed and insured company serving the Greater Bay Area. We provide custom beverage catering programs to meet any need. For more information please email or call 916-203-8384. 

Catering information:

All catering orders must be placed six days prior to your event. There is a minimum of 15 per order and 20 for ceviche. You do not have to place the order for your entire party. For example, a party of 50 could order 25 chicken sandwiches and 25 duck sandwiches rather than 50 of each. Sandwiches are approximately ½ a sandwich per order.

Please select the items you wish to order, the amount you wish to order them for, and the time you would like to begin food service. Cold items will be served first and hot items will follow in rounds. We have chafing dishes to keep the food hot and a table will be set aside for your group. We do not have cocktail servers. Outside food is not allowed during the hours our kitchen is open (4pm-9pm everyday). However, as we do not currently offer any dessert options, you are welcome to bring your own dessert at no additional fee.

Please feel free to contact the above email with any questions regarding the menu/private events. We look forward to hosting your party at Make Westing!
