Private Functions

The Studio Restaurant and Bar is located in the heart of America’s oldest working art colony overlooking the beautiful Smith Cove. Our dining room and deck are perfect for any kind of party, including weddings, rehearsal dinners, showers, anniversaries, birthdays, corporate gatherings, reunions, and fundraisers.

We can accommodate up to:
  • 100 guests comfortably outside, weather permitting, or you can cover the entire outside space with a large tent rental
  • 65-85 guests in our private indoor dining room
  • Combined: 185-225 guests depending on the event's format

The Studio is available for private parties from April Thru May and from the second week of September to late November. Picturesque views of Gloucester’s maritime heritage are seen from every table, especially from our private event dining space.

Our outdoor deck sits right on Smith Cove making it easy to arrive and depart by boat. If you don't have your own boat, the local boat shuttle, Cape Ann Harbor Tours, picks up and drops off at our restaurant and gives you a chance to enjoy Gloucester's local landmarks.

Our expert event planners will help you craft a unique experience for your guests, with exquisite food & drinks especially prepared for your event. Our function menu is easily customizable to your tastes and preferences. Hosting an event with us here at The Studio will enable you to relax and enjoy the festivities.
