Casual and


Our warm interior and cozy patio are perfect for small parties as well as private meetings.

Groups, meetings, birthdays, and wakes are welcome in The Hollow any time we aren’t hosting an event. You can move tables and settle-in, as long as you aren’t disruptive to other visitors. There is a one-drink minimum for attendees of a meeting or watch-party.

If you want something more private or exclusive, The Hollow is available to reserve. Just let us know at least a week in advance, and we can help you set up your special event.

The space includes two televisions available for movies or digital presentations. We offer different options for staffing and drink services, and work with local chefs to offer levels of catering. If you’re interested in live music, we know several local artists gifted in acoustic tunes. (Loud amps are not allowed in The Hollow.)

Please note that minors are not allowed in the “fenced” taproom when alcohol is served. Minors are welcome in the main seating area. Because The Hollow can look to toddlers like a tiny Disneyland, it’s important for guests to keep kids close and controlled.
