ARRANGING PRIVATE DINING, A GROUP BOOKING OR A SPECIAL EVENT AT PALADAR

Paladar is a special one-of-a-kind destination restaurant. We take great pride in being able to arrange private dining as well as a range of different types of groups, parties and special functions.

This could be a birthday or anniversary, a hen or stag night, an office party, a wedding reception, a reunion dinner, a supper club or simply a large family gathering. We consider parties of more than 10 to be a "group" and special rules apply. This page tries to explain as simply as possible some of these rules.

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND BOOKING LARGE PARTIES WELL IN ADVANCE, ESPECIALLY AT WEEKENDS!

Full Venue Hire

For exclusive use of the whole restaurant, bodega and garden please ask us for a quote.

Flexibility of Minimum Spends:

Minimum spends generally apply to an area for a full dinner session. We can be more flexible with minimum spends for weekday lunchtimes and mid-afternoons. We can also reduce the minimum spend for a later evening start (for example for exclusive use from 8.30pm until close).

If you do not meet the minimum spend, you may buy bottles of wine / spirits (at retail prices) in the bodega and take them home with you to make up the shortfall. Alternatively, we can charge you a "room hire" to make up the shortfall.

Decorations and Live Music

You are welcome to decorate the area and/or arrange live music if you have exclusive use of an area. We can put you in touch with an excellent Cuban musician if you would like to arrange live music.
Please note: BALLOONS WITH CONFETTI ARE NOT PERMITTED (confetti is not permitted in the restaurant and garden).

Canapé receptions

We can arrange stand-up canape receptions in any of the bodega, garden or private room but minimum spends would still apply if the reception is in the evening during the main dinner period.
