Our private dining spaces offer a variety of exceptional experiences regardless of season.

Thank you for your interest in 22 Bowen’s. We are currently hosting smaller affairs of up to 50 people and look forward to welcoming you. Additionally we have created a special catering menu if you prefer to entertain in your own home. Our Sales Team is ready to help you plan your upcoming event!

Our private event spaces offer a variety of exceptional experiences regardless of season. Smaller affairs are prime for our Wine Room. On one end, floor-to-ceiling wines set the tone for a spectacular happening; at the other, windows overlooking the wharf provide a unique glimpse into the bustle of the city. The Wine Room also opens up to the Deck, which features some of the most enviable al fresco seating in town. Take the two together and you have the makings of an unforgettable setting for up to 24 guests.

Here are our event spaces available for your next event:

THE SCENE 22 Bowen’s evokes Newport with its charm and sense of place. It’s a classic harborside tavern, rich in texture and tradition; a place with sophisticated charm, defined by its casual elegance, indulgent steaks and New England’s finest seafood, classic drinks and warm, genuine hospitality. Step into the past and the present and be part of the scene at the City by the Sea’s premier waterfront dining destination. During the iconic summer season enjoy our al fresco dining options for your private event – soaking up the sun and liveliness of Newport’s harbor front.

THE SCULL ROOM Located on the second floor of the restaurant, with spectacular views of Newport Harbor, the Scull Room is the perfect choice for groups of up to 40 guests. Named for the antique wooden rowing scull hanging on the rafters, the room offers an open floor plan which encourages mingling and conversation. For groups of 60 or more guests, combine the Scull Room with the Fireside area.

THE WINE ROOM Flanked by an impressive wall of wines, our second floor Wine Room, which overlooks the bustling wharf, offers a relaxed atmosphere for up to 24 guests and is equipped with full audio visual capabilities. This room is the perfect setting for an intimate luncheon, reception, or dinner gathering. Sliding doors lead from the Wine Room to the wraparound deck, offering some of Newport’s best views and a great way to start off your event with an al fresco cocktail reception. Ask your sales manager for details.

THE DECK & PATIO While already considered to have some of the best seats in town, our second floor wraparound deck elevates the private dining experience. With panoramic views of Newport Harbor, the deck is climate controlled and is the perfect complement for events being held in the Wine Room. For an intimate seated dinner, the deck can accommodate up to 32 guests for an unforgettable dining experience. Looking for al fresco dining for smaller parties? The patio terrace is now available to host your next event. Located on the street level, it marries the seclusion of a private space, while being in the heart of bustling Bowen’s Wharf. The patio terrace comfortably seats up to 36 for dinner and is also climate controlled.

Entire Second Floor For larger events, make 22 Bowen’s your own with a complete rental of our private dining spaces. Combining the Wine Room, Scull Room, lounge and upstairs deck is ideal for post wedding brunches and welcome events and accommodates up to 125 guests with a station style set up.
