PRIVATE EVENTS is not a side gig at Bottino -- it has always been central to what we do!  Since our inception in 1997 when West Chelsea was emerging as the new art neighborhood,  Bottino has hosted innumerable gallery opening dinners in our private spaces.  As the neighborhood changed, and with the opening of the Highline in particular, West Chelsea and Bottino have become a destination for all kinds of gatherings: showers, weddings, business dinners and celebrations of every type.  

With the ability to host private events of 10-150 guests, with private spaces radiating off of our tree-shaded central patio, Bottino is a unique venue for events-- planned and managed for your ease and enjoyment. 

Customized lunch and dinner prix fixe menus are created with you to offer a variety of options for your guests; cocktail and hors d'oeuvres menus are also available.  We are happy to assist with floor plans, table decor, special occasion cakes, even deejays -- and you are equally welcome to use any vendors you prefer.
