Private Dinners

Private group dinners include wedding rehearsals & receptions, special occasions, corporate events, adult and school tour groups.

The ambiance of an 18th-century inn awaits your group at Michie Tavern ca. 1784, located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
When holding a private evening event, the historic restaurant is reserved for your group exclusively.  Whether your event is a rehearsal dinner, company banquet or private party, arrangements can be customized for you. Destination wedding parties, conference groups, travel, and school groups find the privacy of Michie Tavern to be a perfect venue for an evening function.

Our mission is to provide a taste of the 18th-century with southern hospitality.  All groups merit special attention; experienced Tavern staff will be responsive to every need.  Socials before dinner may include an open or cash bar followed by a bountiful, southern buffet in our candlelit dining rooms.
