Party Over Here! Host Your Next Private Holiday Party at Garage Kitchen + Bar in Gaslamp

Dueling Piano and Top of the Line Menu Options, What are you Waiting For?

Written By: Jaslyn Oberoi

You can turn your holiday party into a memorable experience at Garage Kitchen + Bar in the Gaslamp. It gets its name because the historic building it is located in was once used as a garage back in 1890, but is so much more than that today. At Garage, your party can enjoy craft brews, fantastic cocktails and delicious farm-to-table menu options. Executive Chef, Brent Hersant, holds a background heavy in French cuisine, and the French certainly know a thing or two about food.

The menu focuses on eclectic American food with influences from Asia, and includes mouthwatering options such as Asian Spare Ribs, Ahi Tartare “Nachos”, Flatbreads, Diver Scallops with Valencia Glazed Pork Belly, Truffle Lobster Mac and a variety of buffet options. Many locals are drawn to the local sustainable ingredients that are used for creating the food and cocktails.

Garage has a versatile space that accommodates 175 people and includes an experienced on-staff coordinator to make sure you have a seamless event. Sound hook ups, TVs and stage lights are all positioned for the best guest experience. Options include a semi-private party, private upstairs as well as a full venue buyout. Your party will be customized and crafted for you and your guest’s needs.

Another crowd winner for holiday parties is Garage Kitchen + Bar’s sister venue, located right next door, The Shout House!  The Shout House! won an award for San Diego’s Favorite Venue for Live Music in 2017 & 2016, by the Gaslamp Quarter Lamplighter Awards and is referred to as “the happiest place in San Diego!” Spanning 5,500 square feet of flexible event space, tasty food, friendly staff and an unforgettable entertainment experience, makes it the perfect venue. The Shout House! accommodates up to 282 guests, offering ideal space no matter what your party size may be. The dueling piano show is an exceptional entertainment experience guests will love.

The dueling piano show involves two piano players and singers, face to face at grand pianos. The musicians perform classic hits from the 1950’s to present-day hits.  And, the audience gets to participate by requesting songs all throughout the night.

“It’s a celebration of life at the top of your lungs,” said Josefine Jandinger, Marketing Manager of Garage and Shout House!  Many companies love to utilize this musical experience as an opportunity for team bonding through sing-alongs and even offer the opportunity to roast that “special” employee or boss.

When looking for a spot to throw a holiday party, make sure it’s a venue that will create an experience everyone can enjoy. With so many great options in San Diego, these two venues are available for full venue buyouts that have proven to be excellent choices to celebrate the season and toast glasses of champagne to the new year! Cheers!
