Whether you're celebrating a graduation, birthday, wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, or anything in between, you're most likely searching for a restaurant that will be able to host your special event. These locally-owned businesses in downtown Chandler are the perfect spot to host your event:
SanTan Brewing Co.
SanTan Brewing Co.'s private room is a popular space for rehearsal dinners, corporate events, and even weddings. The space includes both an indoor space and outdoor space, and can hold a maximum capacity of 130 people.
They let you choose from plated entrees, stationed appetizers, or buffets (or combos of these options), and work with you to determine your perfect menu. It's a beautiful, modern space with red brick, stainless steel brew tanks and neutral-colored dining tables and chairs.
Cost varies greatly depending on your date, your menu, and the way you choose to serve your food. They also offer catering services, including kegs. Contact Kaitlin Godziela for more information; email@example.com & (480) 710-6603.
Looking for something dramatic and special? The speakeasy, The Ostrich, is available for large parties and even restaurant buy outs.
The cost associated with renting the space depends on your number of guests and the time of the week; the venue fee can be as little as $95. One caveat: they don't allow you to rent the space out on a Friday or Saturday night. There is a virtual tour of the space available at this link.
To inquire about booking, call: (480) 917-4903
VB Lounge is another restaurant with a private dining space available for special occasions. The capacity for the room is 40 guests, and the venue cost depends on seating arrangements, presentations, event-type and date.
The room does not have a minimum if booked on a weekday. The restaurants evoke feelings of new age Hollywood glamour, perfect for a special occasion.

La Stalla Cucina Rustica
If you're wanting to make a large reservation and still have the intimate feeling of a private room, we recommend La Stalla Cucina Rustica, where, they take reservations and can divide the dining room space into smaller, more secluded areas.
The atmosphere is warm and elegant, with white table cloths, a brick oven, a wine list and delicious Italian food. Call them at (480) 855-9990 to make a reservation.
Restaurants that allow you to show up (no reservations required, first come, first served) with your large party:
Perhaps you're a bit 'late to the party' in setting the reservations for your gathering. Procrastinators rejoice because the following businesses are open to you coming in and pushing tables together for your group.
Ice Cream Sammies
Ice Cream Sammies has a patio that can seat 15-20 people. The patio is first come, first serve, so there is no charge for the space. Also, it's dog-friendly!
The space is relaxed with umbrellas, picnic tables and large yard games to play like corn hole and Giant Jenga. The space has been used for baby showers, birthday parties, bridal showers and other gatherings of friends and family.
While they don't accept reservations, or reserve the space, they suggest calling in to let them know your party is coming a day or more ahead of time so they can make sure to have their staff ready to help you with your party needs: (480) 739-9221
Last on our list is ChopShop Co. Chandler, like Ice Cream Sammies, they have a side patio that sits 15-20 people. Dogs are allowed in this area, and they also have lawn games to play. Since you cannot reserve the space, there is no fee to use the area.
The patio is located under the breezeway, so you have some coverage if you're looking for a reprieve from the sunshine. The vibe is casual.
