We have been doing memorable corporate and family events for over 40 years. We know what it takes to not only please the guest, but to please the event organizers, helping them host wonderful evenings without any struggles or headaches. We strive to be the smoothest, easiest event location that you will ever work with. Contact us to design a very special evening for you and your group.
Take over the entire restaurant for your party! We can accommodate about 150 people inside and up to about 200 people if our outdoor riverside deck is incorporated. For groups of approximately 80-100 or less we can offer a regular table service with a fixed or choice menu, or buffet service. For larger groups, buffet service is likely to be recommended. We have great flexibility when it comes to menu formation.
Pricing for a private party is determined according to the day of the week and the month of the year: Friday is more expensive for a closure than Tuesday; July is more expensive than October but less than March and ski season. The number of guests attending is also figured in but is not the driving factor many times.
Depending on the number of guests, we usually have room for entertainment (band and dancing) and audio/visual equipment.
Host on our riverside deck…
We are able to offer this option to groups about 50 and under. Our outdoor riverside deck has a retractable awning to help provide cover from afternoon sun or rain showers. Pricing is determined along the lines of the private party but with only the deck in mind. There is a closure fee and a minimum food and bar expenditure established. We offer a buffet style of service on the deck and have good flexibility when it comes to what menu choices are served. We also develop a back-up plan in case of a rare bad weather day.
Claim the dining room for the first 2 hours of the evening (seasonally available)…
This option is not generally available during ski season. A group can take over the dining room for the first seating of the evening. The dining room normally seats 104 people. There is a fee for the dining room closure dependent upon the time of the year and the size of the group. There will also be a minimum food and bar expenditure established. Style of service and menu vary with the size of the group. After two hours the Minturn Saloon dining room will be open to regular customers and tables will have to be made available if needed. The party is welcome to adjourn to the bar or deck. The bar and deck remains open to the public throughout the evening.
Large groups always welcomed!
The Minturn Saloon handles large groups on a nightly basis as part of our normal service. The Minturn Saloon does not use a reservation system so groups should work out the details with us in advance. There is flexibility when it comes to menu design – our regular menu, The Minturn Saloon “limited menu“, or a specially conceived menu for your group. Buffet service is not available in the dining room when we are open to the public. There are no special fees.
Apes-ski Private Party…
Your group can finish a great day of skiing by enjoying après-ski at the Minturn Saloon, declared by Men’s Journal as one of the “Best après-ski bar in the world”. Enjoy drinks and appetizers while exchanging stories about a great ski day whether you skied the world famous Minturn Mile or not! Groups of 30 to 100 people can use our dining room as their private après-ski space. Available most weeks of the ski season, Monday through Thursday, from 3:00 to 5:00pm.
