Full Buyouts

With its lush secluded patio, two full bars, world-class sound system and warm interior, Comal is a fantastic option for a wedding, a large office party or any other special festive gathering of 75-250 people.  We’ve hosted wedding receptions (in some cases couples choose to exchange vows on our patio and roll right into the reception), rehearsal dinners and company holiday parties.  We can create custom cocktails and in general we will work closely with you to realize your vision for your event, from the menu to decorations to DJ to the pacing of the evening.

Partial Buyouts

Groups of 75-150 can rent our heated patio for gatherings after 8pm on weeknights (Sunday – Wednesday only) on a seasonal basis.  The rental includes the covered patio dining area with full bar plus our beer garden area with fire pit.  We typically provide a steady stream of passed appetizers in addition to an open bar and can arrange for a DJ if you wish.
