Gather the Gang andJust Enjoy – We Got This!

Gatherings is a unique event venue perfect for private affairs up to 75 guests. Whether you are looking for something out of the ordinary for a rehearsal dinner, a retirement, special birthday, or anniversary party, or have been hearing employee grumbling about doing the same ole’ Holiday party each year, stop right here! Gatherings is sure to delight you and your guests.

As our name implies, this is a place to “gather” your friends, family, employees and clients. When your event calls for an atmosphere that is warm and inviting, yet sophisticated, Gatherings should be on your go-to list. The home was built in the Victorian era and is a perfect boutique-type venue offering exceptional food and grand service that has become a Pacific Grove local tradition!


The décor is traditional and eclectic in style. For art history buffs, hanging throughout the house are reproductions of some of history’s greatest and influential painters, and you and your guests will enjoy watching our on-site catering team in action through the window installed between the Music Room and Kitchen. With two fireplaces, our outdoor heaters, your guests will always be warm, and for background music, you may have a musician play the Baby Grand Player Piano, hire a DJ, or plug your iPod into our speaker system.

Whatever fun event you are planning, the staff at Gatherings looks forward to sharing our home with you and making your special event a uniquely memorable occasion.

Rehearsal Dinners are a Specialty of Gatherings

Your Rehearsal “Dinner” does not need to be the same old uninteresting, back room banquet table where all the bride’s family and friends are at one end and the groom’s group is clutched together at the other! It’s the 21st century for goodness sake, let them mingle!

Specializing in a “Roaming Reception” style of service that makes it easy for your guests to get to know each other before the big wedding day, an event at Gatherings brings them together in a relaxed and welcoming environment, free to roam. Not only that, but they are catered to by private staff that is there for you and your guests only! Gatherings is a great alternative to the “norm” for all types of pre-wedding and post-wedding events, especially where you are bringing two families together who most haven’t even met each other yet.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Gatherings. I had my doubts because it was not a sit-down dinner, but as it turned out, guests were able to mingle and had the opportunity to meet everybody. There were places to sit, but people would sit a bit then wonder around inside and outside. The flow made it easy to meet and visit with everyone at the event, and at the wedding, we all already knew each other and it was one big happy family.

We had our rehearsal/welcome dinner at Gatherings. I think I loved it as much as our wedding. It’s a warm, intimate space. We had about 50 people and did the 3-hour rehearsal dinner package and open bar. With the string lights and fireplace outside, it was cozy and beautiful. There was plenty of space for everyone to hang out. Everyone raved about the venue and the food. I have only happy memories of the night.

Our rehearsal dinner at Gatherings was beautiful and the food is incredible.  The entire staff at Gatherings were amazing and we can’t thank everyone enough!  The servers and bartenders where so attentive and made sure all the guests were satisfied.  It was a pleasure to work with employees who truly seem to enjoy what they do and who they work for.  If you are looking for an intimate place for a function, Gatherings is it!
