Private Party Catering & Beverage Options
IN-HOUSE CATERING SERVICES
The Café Du Nord and the Swedish American Hall are more then two historic venues. We are an entertainment and private events company producing over 400 concerts and events each year. We offer gourmet in-house catering for your private event in either or both venues. Our restaurant and catering operations are managed by “Chef Mike” Werden, a dedicated, hands-on professional with twenty-five years of fine dining experience. Prior to joining us in 2003, Mike worked in some of S.F.’s best restaurants including the Waterfront, Vertigo and Le Entrecote. And he will work with you to help you design the perfect menu at a budget you can afford.
Groups planning a private event may offer their guests an open bar with a full range of beverages or a more limited selection to help control costs. You may always set a maximum limit for your bar total or simply let your guests purchase their own drinks with a regular "cash bar" or "cash and carry" cocktail service.
OTHER BEVERAGE OPTIONS
We will gladly work with you to accommodate all of your beverage requirements. Wine may be purchased by the bottle and offered on the table or buffet. A coffee and tea station can be arranged to compliment a dessert or cake table. Champagne toasts are easily organized with servers distributing pre-purchased champagne by the glass to your guests just before toast-time. Juices and other non-alcoholic beverages may also be offered from the bar or on a buffet.
OUTSIDE CATERING IS PERMITTED
The use of outside caterers is permitted at the Swedish American Hall. For an additional fee, outside caterers can use our small prep kitchen.
