Private Events



ONLY @ THE MET

Two historic and character rich rooms are available each and every day for your special events. The BackRoom's post-industrial vibe and home to Lima's first elevator has the capacity to seat 49 people for a sit-down dining experience or swanky cocktail party. Our 19th century exposed brick, wood-beam construction and franklin-style lighting also provide a lively and historical setting for all-day business meetings, family dinners, baby showers, intimate weddings, medical dinners and meetings. The BackRoom is quietly tucked away from the hustling bar scene giving your guests a cozy, laid back atmosphere that will always be completely private. The Lounge, originally part of the Met Bank from 1880, has a more open feel to it. Situated next to the main dining area and adorned with the original 21' tin ceilings, this street side venue can be completely private, semi-private or open depending on your needs. This area has easy access to our outdoor seating in the warmer months with great views of downtown. This area can fit up to 20 for private dining, meetings or bridal showers or 40 for a cocktail event.

The Details: The BackRoom and Lounge are available with a $500 food/beverage minimum (Friday &Saturday after 4pm). Both rooms are available for meetings or dinners during the week at no extra charge. Both rooms have full AV capabilities, 70" TVs, speaker systems, microphones and programmable music options to give you just the feel you want for your space. A $100 deposit is required to reserve the room. This deposit will be applied to your food bill and is fully refundable if the reservation is cancelled up to 48 hours in advance. Tax and gratuity are not included.
