What are the private party room options at Blatt Beer & Table?

Our Rooftop Beer Garden is located on our second level and features garage doors and heaters allowing for a comfortable environment for private gatherings year round. When the garages doors are open, it accommodates up to 200 guests seated or cocktail parties of up to 300 guests standing. When enclosed, it comfortably fits up to 150 guests. This is a unique venue for larger parties, where the atmosphere hinges on downtown Omaha’s spectacular views, including Charles Schwab Stadium, the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge and the CHI Health Center.

Our Rosenblatt Room is located on the ground level closest to the home of the College World Series, Charles Schwab Stadium. Named after the legendary Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium, this room accommodates 50 guests comfortably for those seated intimate events. Surrounded by windows and filled with historic imagery, the Rosenblatt Room includes a private bar with 8 rotating beers on tap and private restrooms. In the summer, step outside for some sweet treats at our Zesto's creamery next door.

How far in advance should I plan my party?

We request that you book your party at least 2 weeks in advance, but can often accommodate requests on shorter notice if our private party room is available. Two weeks allows us plenty of time to discuss your event needs and objectives, and allows our team to personalize a great experience that meets your expectations. Parties scheduled during summer weekends and the holiday season do book quickly, so reaching out up to a year in advance is advised for these peak seasons! We do not require a deposit, but do ask for a credit card to hold your event date. Your total balance is due at the conclusion of the event, same day.

What is your cancellation policy?

Due to our food ordering deadlines, we require notice of 7 days or more ahead of your event date to avoid cancellation charges. Cancellation 3-6 days before the event date results in a cancellation charge of 50% of the event menu invoice. Cancellation within 2 days of the event date results in a cancellation charge of 100% of the event menu invoice.

What if it rains or snows the day of my event?

No problem! Our private event spaces are weather-proof and your party can go on as planned. Our Rooftop Beer Garden can be heated and completely enclosed by garage doors, still offering your guests a dramatic view of Omaha’s downtown sites. Our rooftop does not offer air conditioning, however. So if your party is scheduled on a hot day and a storm requires that the garage doors be closed, we advise renting fans. We also have elevator access from the main floor up to the rooftop to keep your guests out of the elements. The Rosenblatt Room can be completely enclosed with heating and air conditioning.

Do you require a deposit?

We do not require a deposit, but do ask for a credit card to hold your event date. Your total balance is due at the conclusion of the event, same day.

What is the cost of renting a private party room?

We do not charge a rental fee to schedule a private event on our Rooftop Beer Garden or Rosenblatt Room.
