Private Functions

The Trident is the perfect venue for holiday parties, birthdays, business meetings, wedding brunches, book parties, or any social gathering.  Our second floor space offers the best views of Newbury Street in a relaxed, welcoming environment.  As the last independent bookstore and café in Boston, the Trident is a unique place to host any type of event.

Want to show a presentation for your next business meeting? A home video to entertain your friends?  How about your own private movie night? We have a large screen projector that can show videos and images!

We are able to accommodate any type of dining, including buffet style, passed hor d’oeuvres, or sit-down entrées. We specialize in comfort food, and of course, our acclaimed brunch. Like our cafe, we offer brunch items anytime, perfect for a breakfast-for-dinner party.  Choose food items from our catering or regular menus, or let us know what you’d like and we’ll be happy to create a custom menu.
