Cheers to the Best Party Ever

Host your private and semi-private parties at The Stief

Hosting a small get-together at your home can be fun, but once the guest list grows beyond your home’s capacity, it’s time to move the party to The Stief. Our bar and restaurant can handle private and semi-private parties of up to 131 guests. We offer plenty of seating and delicious catering options to ensure your party will be a hit.

From bridal showers to birthdays to anniversaries, you can turn to The Stief for all of your adult parties. We can even host your corporate parties. Take a look at our availability:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: Noon – midnight
Thursdays during the fall, winter and spring 12pm-12am  

Saturday: 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Sunday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

We can provide hard plastic eating utensils and plates. We have 10 high top tables and 7 standard size tables, with total seating for 63 people. We can bring in more tables and chairs from our sister pubs if necessary. Our rental fee is $90 per hour for a minimum for three hours.

We offer card boxes, lanterns, candle holders, dessert stands and more through Jordan Marcel, Inc. to accommodate your needs. There’s a $30 per hour fee for early set up with rental.

We also offer special drink prices with your rental. You can enjoy $1 off all martinis, $3.50 domestic bottles, $3 well drinks and $4 mid-shelf drinks. Call us today at 315-269-1236 to reserve our space.

Don’t forget about The Varick!

You can rent out The Varick and The Stief to make your private party extra special. The Varick is a smoking bar where you can unwind with a cigar and specialty drinks. Its occupancy is 74 people. The rental fee for The Varick alone is $90 an hour for a minimum of three hours. The rental fee for both venues together is $160 per hour.

The Varick is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from noon to midnight. Thursday in the Fall, Winter and Spring from noon to midnight. It’s available on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. If your party includes 50 or more people, we’ll consider extending our Saturday hours to 9 p.m.

Get in touch with us for details about our deposit and cancellation policies.

Host a semi-private party to save money

Don’t need as much space as provided in the private party option? Book a semi-private party instead. Unless you’re using a licensed outside food vendor, there’s no rental fee. We’ll still supply plastic eating utensils and paper napkins, but your party will be limited to The Stief’s billiard side. It can hold 74 people with seating for 26.

You can schedule a semi-private party on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Contact us today for more information.

Our spirit options

You can choose from two spirit options for your party:

Option 1 – Run-a-Tab per drink: All charges will be billed to the group. The actual number of drinks served will be reflected on your final bill. You can limit what you’ll run on the tab, such as draft beer or house wine. A 25% gratuity will be added to the bill for your bartender.
Option 2 – Cash bar: Your guests will pay for drinks individually. We also offer coffee service. The Stief uses Utica Roasting Coffee Company House Blend Coffee. For a minimum of eight cups, you can get coffee for $2.50 per cup with free refills.
