Private Events at The Tasting Table
The Tasting Table is a charming wine cellar located in a historic building in the Palace District. Our beautiful tasting room is ideal for all manner of wine-fueled events when you want to achieve a wine cellar feeling in the middle of the city!
The space can fit 32 guests seated in the main room (at two long tables or four smaller ones), and six people in the cozy back cellar-room. Different configurations are possible for standing events. The cellar is fully equipped with an open kitchen and enough wine glasses and serving plates and utensils for any type of culinary event. Our private chef and team of sommeliers are on-hand to help make your event a success.

HOST YOUR OWN EVENT
Let your party-planning skills shine and be the host of your own event—whether it’s big or small! Make our cellar your own, and use the space for a cooking party with friends (or just order something to be delivered), a business meeting, a place to open some nice bottles with friends, or whatever you have in mind. If you need help, we are happy to provide servers or sommeliers to help put your plan into action. Enjoy wines from our selection for shelf prices.
LET US PLAN YOUR PRIVATE EVENT
Based on your preferences, we’ll design a customized experience—whether it’s a multi-course wine dinner, a wine masterclass, a tasting, a meeting, or a party. We’ll help you choose unique and unforgettable wines (paired with food, if you desire), and our sommeliers will present the wines in an engaging and educational way. Get in touch for sample food and wine menus, and a price offer.
BOOK AN AT-HOME OR OFF-SITE TASTING
We can also bring the Tasting Table experience to your home/event location with a curated selection of wine, beer, and spirits.
WINE BAR EXPRESS
We’ll bring everything to you … a curated selection of wine, chill buckets, wine glasses, ice, and artisan cheese and charcuterie platters. let us choose for you, based on your preferences, or make the selections on your own from our shop. We’ll set everything up, and then leave it to you.
WINE BAR + SOMMELIER
All of the above, plus a fun & knowledgeable sommelier to pour wines and give information on the chosen wines.
WINE TASTING POSSIBILITIES
We are proud of our selection of unique Hungarian and Central European wines, from which we are able to put together a wide range of wine tasting themes, which can be casual cocktail-style events or sit-down tastings. Our tastings, guided by our sommeliers, are fun, interactive, and informative.
FOOD POSSIBILITIES FOR PRIVATE EVENTS
The Tasting Table has a full-kitchen (and a fantastic chef) where we can prepare a variety of cold and hot food. We are happy to provide sample menus, or develop customized menus with wine pairings for your event.
GROUP & TEAM-BUILDING ACTIVITIES
Wine and food are great additions (as well as mood-enhancers) to team-building activities. These events are ideal for promoting mingling and interacting among participants. These activities could be done in conjunction with a dinner.
PRIVATE VENUE RENTAL
We are happy to arrange the food and wine for your event. But if you simply would like to rent the venue for a meeting or other type of gathering, we can also do that.
COOKING CLASS & DINNER PARTY
Learn how to cook Hungarian style in our open kitchen. This upbeat event combines a casual cooking class with a dinner party, with wine flowing the whole time. You’ll start with an aperitif and nibbles of local artisan cheese and charcuterie, while our instructor explains the menu plan (a three-course meal) for the evening, and what needs to be done to get a delicious dinner on the table. As we progress with the cooking, through conversations with our chef instructor, you will learn about Hungarian culinary traditions, kitchen secrets, how the locals work with important local ingredients, and signature (and seasonal) Hungarian flavor combinations. We believe that wine and food are best enjoyed together, so our sommelier will pour samples of different wines throughout the course of the evening so you can taste and learn. The cooking can be hand-on for those who want to participate, while those more interested in observing and enjoying the wine can step back and watch. Once dinner is ready, we’ll sit down (with a well-deserved glass of wine) and enjoy the fruits of our labor together. Contact us for information and pricing.
OFF-SITE WINE TASTINGS AND CULINARY EVENTS
The Tasting Table can come to you! If you have a party too large for our space, or you would rather host a tasting event for your guests at your office or home, we are happy to bring our wine tasting experience to you. We can offer the above tasting themes at your venue, and can provide wine glasses and staff. Each of our off-site tasting events will be customizable for your specific needs and pricing is dependent on the wine served and the number of participants.
