The original.

At Porta, our family always comes first. There is something about a long table covered with simple food and surrounded by love that makes us count the good hours. So now we're setting our table for your family. Our options for group dining reflect our commitment to serving you with the freshest seasonal ingredients in a warm setting. We look forward to having you in our home.

The Abbot Room

50 to 175 guests*

Adjacent to Porta's main dining room, The Abbot Room is a completely private 2500 square foot space with a 20-foot ceiling and stained concrete floor. It includes a private entrance, outdoor space, full bar, and private restrooms, as well as a dance floor boasting a crystal canopy, an art installation that doubles as a DJ booth, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems. It's a rich, dramatic backdrop for any event: wedding receptions, corporate meetings, non-profit fundraisers, photo shoots and film screenings, after parties, and gallery shows. Best of all, it's just a block from the beach. (Photography by Cassie Castellaw)
