Event Planning Details
thyme provides Upstairs and Main Dining Room venues, with room minimums and per person pricing, based on the type of event. View Sample Private Event Pricing here; however, please email us to customize your event!
thyme requires a signed contract as well as 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve any date & space and formally book your event.
PARKING & VALET
thyme has a small private lot and provides limited parking on-site. Valet service is strongly recommended for private events scheduled when valet is not already provided, and can be arranged through an outside company for a fee of $150/one attendant upon request. Please notify us at least one week in advance if you would like valet service added to your contract. Parking cannot be guaranteed, and if the lot should become full, guests will need to find additional parking on the street or in nearby municipal lots.
CUSTOM GUEST MENUS
Personalized menus may be printed for your guests, with your personal message or company name/logo, compliments of thyme. Please provide us with your custom menu title.
A variety of stationary and/or passed hors d'oeuvres is available for all events. Please inquire for options/pricing.
thyme offers options for soft, limited and unlimited full open bars. We can customize bar options according to your event.
If you should choose to bring in floral arrangements or an occasion cake, thyme does have both florist and bakery recommendations available upon request. Client, florist or anyone else assigned, may arrive a half-hour prior to the start of the event to bring in & set-up any decorations, favors, centerpieces, etc. Guidelines as far as decorating are as follows, please: No paint, glitter or confetti, and nothing may be hung on any painted walls. Centerpieces should be no more than 6" in diameter at the base. Place cards/table numbers will need to be both provided & placed out by the decorator in advance, should you opt to use them.
A guaranteed minimum/maximum number of guests is required at the time of booking. A final count will be required no less than 7 days prior to the event date. The final count provided will be the number of guests that we will order, prepare & staff for and will therefore be the number of guests expected to be paid for on the day of the event. In the event that the final count provided does not meet the guaranteed minimum/maximum contracted, then you will simply be expected to pay the minimum per the contract.
The restaurant is equipped with sound system and background music is played on both floors. Your personal discs/station may be provided for events utilizing the entire restaurant. Live music may be arranged for main floor events at an additional fee, based on availability. ipods with dock/speaker may be brought in for private events utilizing one space - volume should be kept at a level such that it does not interfere with guests dining in the other spaces. Dancing is not permitted upstairs.
thyme can arrange rental of audio-visual for your meeting and/or presentation, at an additional cost, with a minimum of two week's notice.
thyme’s main floor is handicapped accessible; however the restaurant’s only restrooms and upstairs dining room are not handicapped accessible, as we are located within a historic building.
thyme is unable to accommodate strollers in dining room, however, we will be happy to provide high chairs for infants/young children. Infant car seats also welcome.
On occasion, more than one special event is booked in the restaurant at the same time, in alternate spaces, unless the entire restaurant is rented.
*2021 Update: thyme is still requesting masks be worn upon entering the restaurant at this time (particularly for those who have not been vaccinated) - these may be removed upon seating/arrival in the private room.
