Private Events


Throw one hell of a party with exclusive access for the night! A private dinner party at Lazy Bear is, in part, a performance. Each course begins with an introduction by a chef from the entirely open kitchen. Taking center stage in the dining room, chefs plate each dish right in front of you. Don’t be shy — our guests are key participants! We encourage you to visit the kitchen early and often, get to know us, take photos, talk about the how, and delve into the why.

We specialize in creating unforgettable, multi-sensory, fine dining events—it’s what we do every night. Have Lazy Bear come to you and create an incredible experience on the day and time, and at the location of your choosing. Our chefs will tell you about the inspiration behind each hyper-seasonal course on our two-Michelin-starred menu, and our award-winning sommelier team is eager to guide you through a bespoke pairing selected from our 10,000 bottle cellar just for you. Let us handle every detail, and our unique cuisine, wines, and service will make for an unforgettable event.


Step into the Lazy Bear kitchen thanks to the power of technology! Chef/Owner David Barzelay hosts a virtual cooking class while you cook along with him at home. Your group will receive a kit of raw or partially-prepped ingredients for a three to five-course meal, and a scheduled Zoom video call where Chef David leads the class, teaching you skills and techniques, and explaining how we do what we do. Guests will be encouraged to ask questions and to be engaged. Pair your dinner with a set of house cocktails or a bottle of wine from our world-class cellar for a truly superb evening.


We’ll bring the bar to you with a private virtual class designed by Nicolas Torres, Bar Director and Owner of our sister bar & restaurant True Laurel. Get to know the history, techniques, and concepts behind our reserve spirits and signature drinks as we walk your group step by step through the creation of a house cocktail. Each participant will receive a kit (non-alcoholic option available) that includes all the components needed to compose the drinks at home. The experience is designed to be interactive, engaging, and great for spirit connoisseurs and novices alike.


Make a date with our sommeliers in our comfy wine cellar space, including Beverage Director Jacob Brown, for an informative and entertaining evening of wine tasting. Tailoring the experience to your group's interests, we can focus on particular regions or varietals, taste through a mix of the sommeliers' selections from our world-class cellar, or even lead your group through a blind tasting using the deductive tasting grid. Tastings can even be double-blind to really put Jacob to the test. We'll weave in the fascinating stories behind the wines, vineyards, and vintners, connecting winemaking techniques with what's in the glass, and leaving your group with new tasting skills and a deeper enjoyment of wine.
