The Prohibition Room

Outfitted in elegant amber wood paneling, mirrors, and paintings, the Prohibition Room is the prime standard for luxury private dining. Tucked away from our main dining room, this spacious room will not only accommodate numerous seating designs, but also houses its own private mini-bar. The Prohibition Room is perfectly suited for any event, from company dinners or meetings to birthday celebrations or anniversaries. The room also features a LCD projection screen and HD projector to help with your audio/visual needs.

Accommodates up to 54 guests...

The Sky Room

Our new private dining room provides a remarkable and unique environment to all guests. Enclosed by an advanced solarium, the 'Sky Room' allows guests an open view of the sky, while dining in a climate-controlled private room. Dining while listening to the rain is made possible as well, which is certainly a pleasing environment.

Our new, trend-setting private room is unlike any on the Peninsula and we invite you and your guests to enjoy a memorable dinner.

Accommodates up to 40 guests...

The Balcony

Our semi-private atrium room offers a generous view of both our Dining Room floor and Patio. Separated away from the dining room, The Balcony will allow you and your guests to dine in privacy, but at the same time view the operation of our dining room. With wooden shutters and a glass sky room, The Balcony is an ideal venue for smaller get-togethers wanting a lively atmosphere.

Accommodates up to 14 guests...

The Dining Room

Our main dining room at PorterHouse can be reserved to accommodate up to 80 guests. Our fabulous dining room can be rearranged to your requests to maximize comfort and freedom.
