We reached out to renowned South Florida event planner Chris Weinberg of Chris Weinberg Events, a luxury wedding and event planning firm, for help navigating private dining in Miami — and finding the perfect venue space.

When selecting your Miami private dining venue, Weinberg suggests considering the time of year of your event, location and traffic patterns, and any major Miami events that could create logistical or availability challenges.

“Miami/Miami Beach plays host to a variety of national and international events such as Art Basel, South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and the Miami International Boat Show, just to name a few!” Weinberg shares. “One of the first things you should do is check the date against the South Florida events calendar (Google has links to GMCVB and other calendars) to determine how your date will be affected by availability, logistics and pricing).”  

She also reminds us: “Miami is a city of neighborhoods, each with its own unique characteristics and personality. Determining the neighborhood to host your event helps you narrow down the venue options to what is offered in that neighborhood.”

For an elegant steakhouse that will have you asking for seconds…

Aventura, FL

  • BOURBON STEAK, renowned for its signature butter-poached steaks and duck fat fries from James Beard award-winning chef and renowned restaurateur Michael Mina, keeps our eyes just as well fed with ornate gilded finishes and smoky mirrored glass 
  • Give guests a sumptuous dining experience with their American fare menu that features all natural, organic, and hormone free cuts of beef that are artfully prepared over the wood-burning grills
  • For private parties, we especially recommend the Private Glass Terrace or the Large Private Dining Room with its elegant, minimalist décor and access to a lush outdoor patio space
  • With three private dining rooms to choose from, BOURBON STEAK can accommodate intimate parties of 14 guests or a full-restaurant buyout for 220 seated guests
