Now Booking Private & Semi-Private Events for 2018!

Situated in the nearly century-old lobby of the original Heathman Hotel in the heart of downtown Portland, OR, The Picnic House takes occasional time-off from its highly-acclaimed lunch/dinner service to transform into a first-class event space. We have hosted everything from gubernatorial luncheons to corporate mixers to holiday parties to weddings. With a full-service, individually-tailored event menu, a capacity of 125 seated (175 standing), and a venue that exudes the historical charm of Old Portland, The Picnic House is the perfect venue for your next event! We're also currently booking events in our adjoining Jazz Age-themed cocktail bar, Barlow Artisanal Bar!
