We have tons of room at Nowadays, and you’ll almost never need to worry about finding space to hang out. That said, if you’re planning a special get-together and want us to set aside space in advance, you can reserve one of our picnic tables (or up to seven of them if you’re a larger group). Below are answers to some commonly asked questions. Have a read.
If you’re interested, you’ll find the reservation form at the bottom of the page.
How does it all work?
We’re able to set aside a limited amount of picnic tables for larger groups. Each table can seat eight people, but even if you’re a group larger than eight, you can reserve a single table if that’s all you want. No problem. To reserve a table, we require a $150 bar guarantee with a $75 deposit in advance. (The deposit is refundable if you cancel 24 hrs in advance or if we close because of bad weather.) The $75 deposit will go towards a bar tab on the day and time of your reservation. The remainder will be charged at the end of the night if you haven’t reached the bar guarantee of $150.
Is food included?
Food isn’t included in the reservation. You can order food a la carte from the food truck, or, if you’re reserving five or more tables, we offer food packages from our truck. Just drop us a line in your reservation form below if you’re interested.
Can I book out the entire space?
We don’t do full rentals of Nowadays, because it’s important to us that anyone who walks up on the night finds our doors open.
When can I reserve?
You can reserve a table at any time, any day aside from Sundays, when we are reservation-free because of Mister Sunday. If you don’t claim your table within fifteen minutes of your reservation, we’ll release the table.
Is gratuity added to my reservation?
We add a 20% gratuity charge for reservations of five or more tables. Otherwise, gratuity is up to you.
Can I bring my own music?
We pride ourselves on the musical experience at Nowadays, so we don’t allow folks to bring in outside music. Don’t worry, though. The tunes at Nowadays are always on point.
Can I bring my own food or drinks?
Nowadays is a licensed bar, which means, by law, we can’t allow any outside drinks in (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). We also have a kitchen, so we don’t allow outside food except birthday cakes and such. If you are going to bring in a cake, please let us know, though.
Can I bring games?
We have chess, checkers, backgammon, bocce and ping pong at Nowadays, so we’ve got you covered.
Do you offer a refund in the event of rain?
In the event we close Nowadays due to inclement weather, we’ll absolutely refund your deposit.
Do you offer special drink or food deals for large bookings?
We serve drinks and food at the most reasonable prices we can already, so we don’t offer any further discounts for large reservations.
Can we bring the kids?
Of course! We love kids.
Can we bring our dogs?
Yes! We also love dogs. Just make sure they’re on a leash at all times.
Okay, great. I want to book.
